How to recreate the $13,000.00 look

We have been so busy getting everything up and ready and online. Revamping our website and creating a shopping cart, what fun!@! The garage has officially been turned into a furniture workshop and we have lots of great pieces to show you. But until they are ready, we wanted to share some more inspiration pieces. We call them Chalk-Off's because the look can easily be recreated as a knock-off piece using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Take this gorgeous armoire from the Eloquence collection.
Classic European style with a patina aged and distressed to show years of love and everyday use. I love the blue accents all around, just enough to give the piece warmth and character, but not too overpowering. If blues are your color, this would compliment and finish the room.

Gorgeous, isn't it? Gorgeous enough to pay the $13,000.00 price tag for it? Maybe for some, but for the rest of us that live in the real world, I think not! Enter: Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint. This look could easily be recreated using Cream and Louis Blue and finished with Clear Wax. Annie's paint is so easy to use and with no prep work, you can realistically have this complete and in your room in no time flat!

What do you think? Would you like to create this $13,000.00 look using Chalk Paint?
