New Beginnings

We are happy to report that our blog has finally launched! Hopefully our website will soon follow. I hope we don't give our UPS driver a heart attack when he delivers our first shipment of paint, we may just meet him at the driveway when he pulls up. We have found that it is difficult to be patient when we are so excited. With new projects already waiting in the garage, we are ready to get started! Here is a project that Kellyanne worked on while she was in California learning from Annie Sloan herself. Kellyanne literally dusted off the cobwebs from this fabulous old chair. With Annie Sloan paint, there was no need for primer or sanding.

Kellyanne used a wash technique on the arms, a single layer of paint on the legs and a crackle technique on the front and top of the chair. All followed up by a little dark wax.

From start to finish, including drying time, the project took 45 minutes. Are you ready to start your projects yet! WE ARE! We will be scheduling our first workshop soon! We will keep you posted.

Happy Painting, The Bella Bungalow Girls
