Have a go at painting with Annie Sloan paint. It's so easy and VERY satisfying!
It's nearly a year since I last painted something so I started by having some fun with my favourite paint brand, Annie Sloan. I have a number of Annie Sloan sample pots of various colours, so I decided to paint some indoor plant pots in blues, greens and mauves which will look lovely with spring bulbs.
I used the following Annie Sloan colours (swatches via Annie Sloan website)
- Greek Blue
- Antibes Green
- Old Violet
Some of the pots were aluminium and some were bamboo. Two layers of paint and a layer of clear wax are sufficient. For the Antibes Green I added a layer of dark wax on top of the clear wax as this colour looks nicer with the addition of the dark wax.
The Annie Sloan sample pots are a good size and the paint does go a long way so don't be tempted to buy the large tins unless you are planning on painting a large piece of furniture.
I use the kitchen table to paint on as I don't have anywhere else. Annie Sloan paint has no odour so you don't end up with a room stinking of paint!
I also painted a tray to hold the pots, and am really happy with the mix of colours and how it turned out.
