Frenchy Goodness

Have you seen these nifty little inventions yet?
If not, let me introduce you...
The lid fits snuggly over a standard quart size can, keeping air from drying the paint. The screw top allows for easy access for stirring and is large enough to fit a 2” brush, or you can simply pour out the appropriate amount.

Isn't it wonderful?!? We thought so too, so we are now stocking them.

Now, to show you a fun little find we just finished up.
When we first saw the photo of it, we thought it was all real wood.
But after we went to look at it, we discovered that the top was actually a melamine surface. Great style and excellent potential, but what about the melamine?
Of course, with Chalk paint, that is not a problem at all. Just paint away.

Check out this update...
For this one, we kept the dark wax just in the recessed areas and everything else coated with clear wax. Just look at the sheen on this little beauty!
Buffed to a very nice soft sheen, and it feels just like velvet! Yes, that is the sunshine reflecting back off the table! What an amazing system the Chalk Paint and wax is.
I think French Linen just might be my new favorite color. It is the perfect neutral grey, just slightly warmer than Paris Grey. What do you think?

Have you tried French Linen yet?
