Wow, I worked on a ton of really great projects this weekend that I cannot wait to share. Today I wanted to show you a little sign I created. I think I’m in love.
I don’t know why, but I have a real thing for ampersands. I’ve been wanting to make an ampersand sign for awhile.
This little guy was created using an old cabinet door and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I lightly layered on chalk paint in aubusson blue and napoleonic blue followed by a quick coat of pure white around the edges. After adding the ampersand I lightly distressed the sign.
Just look at that gorgeous texture. I love to experiment with new colors and techniques on small projects before using them on furniture. This layering technique was definitely a winner – I can’t wait to use it more.
By the way, the winner of the $25 gift certificate to Sneakpeeq is Linda Thenhaus and the winner of the $10 gift certificate is Debbie Pedigo. Congratulations!
