Refinishing Furniture with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

First Coat!

There are a ton of great do it yourself ideas on the internet and even more fantastic products to accomplish great results. Since we have little furniture of our own and have many expenses as first time homeowners, I planned to tackle a few do it yourself projects. With the help of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and my parents run down dinning set, I completed my first! We now have a little table for our dinette and it's fitting quite nicely with the rest of the house. 

The whole project took two coats of paint and NO sanding! The product can be virtually be applied on any surface but be sure to check out their instructions online. The chairs are painted with chalk paint only and clear wax whereas top of the table has an additional layer of dark wax. For those who are impatient, each coat takes about 30 minutes to dry, which is just fantastic for those on a tight schedule. Perfect for a weekend project in other words. 

Have you used these products?

Gold Tattoos

There are some childhood memories that we all share such as collecting insane amounts of stickers, writing on driveways with chalk and more importantly covering our entire bodies with temporary tattoos, including our foreheads (because why not!). 

Although I'm not six years old, I had a pretty good reason to buy some temporary tattoos : OSHEAGA weekend (Montreal's annual 3 day outdoor music festival). Some may find these tacky but I'm head over heels for them. Without going overboard, they can be the perfect final touch to an outfit. 

I'm glad I still have a few left for the rest of the summer. You can find these at any Sephora!
