I have been keeping a little secret these last few weeks and I can finally share the news with you!
You know my love (obsession, if you must) for chalk painted furniture, right?!? Well, I am excited to announce that we have been selected to be a part of Country Chic Paint’s 2015 Blogger Squad. You can view the official announcement here as well as meet other bloggers participating in this year’s blogger squad.
Let me introduce you to Country Chic Paint… it is a chalk and mineral-based paint specifically designed for DIYers with a love for refinishing furniture and home decor. It’s VOC free, contains no harmful solvents and comes in several fantastic colors. It dries quickly and makes it easy to achieve that distressed furniture look.
Through this team, I will be sharing some unique projects directly on Country Chic Paint’s website using their products. And just maybe a future paint giveaway!!
Here are the colors I chose to work with for my first projects:
a grayish blue hue that is a perfect neutral for furniture like buffets and dressers
this dark charcoal tone will be a great compliment to Elegance and other accent pieces
a lighter shade of gray perfect for little end tables and chairs
a navy-like blue that will also compliment Elegance and Hurricane for accents in my dining room… as in stripes on my lamp shades
this vintage minty-turquoise just screams Robb Restyle – it’s perfect for little shelves, tables and chairs
most recently I’ve had a thing for gold and brass accents + we love using wax = endless possibilities for adding some shimmer
we are always repurposing old maps and I can’t wait to see how this transfer medium works with some of our map projects
Seriously it was difficult to choose between all of these colors… (they even offer additional colors tinted for the seasons). I absolutely love the bolder hues and retro shades offered by Country Chic Paint.
As a result of this blogging opportunity, I’ve decided that my dining room (seen here and here) will be getting a much needed facelift. All it takes is a little paint, right? The color scheme of the early 2000’s will be updated significantly – starting with furniture. Whoop, whoop! It’s a top to bottom makeover for this office/dining/craft space.
We’ve been scouring the auctions and can’t wait for the local flea markets to open up, so I’ll be creating some “for sale” pieces using Country Chic Paint as well.
