Oh Oh what you can paint with chalk paint

The colors,
 the texture,
the coverage,
the patina with little work!!!
This is the "Adow" perfect.
It is like a warm Tiffany blue!
Colors:Why not a shell??? 
Aubusson Blue, Duck Egg Blue and Old White

WonderFaux Studio does a 1:1:1 ratio
 with these colors
which just appens to be the
giveaway colors! 


Yes, the shell too.
Do not forget this...

This paint sticks beautifully and changes these lamps from ordinary (or plain yucky as the base colors ranged from horrid gold to metal blahhhh) to lovely.
The colors are so lush.

So...remember to enter my giveaway

  1. Hi Molly! The lamps turned out wonderful and I love the lampshades in the first picture. I have been dying to try chalk paint so of course I am loving your giveaway. Take care.

  2. Love it! Did you paint that shell too?

  3. I just did a dresser and have a new piece to post Friday - both with chalk paint. Glad to hear you love it as much as I do! Isn't it amazing. I dont get what the critics say about it being hard to distress - mine was soooo easy

  4. Those lamps are gorgeous! I've yet to try chalk board paint, but I have a table I'd like to paint and would love to win your giveaway.

  5. I would love to try this paint!! Your lamps are fabulous!

  6. Hi Molly! oh I am so drooling over this paint! The lamp is just gorgeous! The Annie Sloan paints are the most wonderful colors. I want to paint everything in my home LOL.

    Loved your comment on the daisies, and I bet your wedding bouquet was so sweet with just the daisies.

    I had to laugh about adding your 14 yr old to the photo mix, I understand completely! Oh and I hate to say it, but I have caught myself with my hand on my hip LOL I don't know what came over me to post those pictures like that hah

    Have a lovely week!

  7. Every time I visit here, I can't help but going to your Wax Technique Tutorial and see that dresser !! It's a dream.

    Have you tried the Briwax over the chalk paint?

  8. The colors on that lamp and shell are gorgeous! Oh how I wish someone would start selling that paint here. Shipping fees are killing me.

  9. Hi Molly! Nice to see you today! Maybe we could work something out with the signs ! LOL

    Seriously, they are fun to make and I really enjoy playing around with them.

    I really enjoyed looking at your shops and ohhhh the painted furniture ! Such awesomeness and I am sure awesomeness is a work lol I enjoyed listening to the music over there too.

    I'm trying to decide whether to go to the pool today and or stay in and finish painting my kitchen wall. Guess I better finish my wall!

    Have a great day! So wonderful to hear from you!

  10. I meant to say awesomeness is a "word" I guess I really should read over and proofread my comments !

  11. Wow! The lamp looks fabulous...but I *love* the table!

  12. Love what you've done with the lamp. It turned out great. Thanks for sharing at BC Good Life Wednesdays.

  14. Sign me up! Everything I see with that magic chalk paint is gorgeous! I am dying to try it out on everything in sight!

  15. I am thrilled to see ya over at Treasure Hunt Thursday!!! Thanks for showing off your pretty chalk paint lamp!
