Customer Linda Williams’ Kitchen Cabinet Makeover!

We can hardly contain our excitement here at Chalk It Up Norcross!

Our customer Linda Williams has shared photos of her painting expertise. And her project is jaw-dropping…

Linda Williams' Old White cabinets.

Linda says, “After many great classes at Chalk It Up Norcross, I decided to attempt a bigger project: painting my dark cherry kitchen cabinets. I used Annie Sloan’s Old White, and Clear Soft Wax for protection. On the raised panels, I sanded through to give some dimension and a soft vintage look.

“I love the results. So bright and refreshing! As an interior designer, I can now offer custom painting on my clients’ old pieces of furniture. I also paint pieces for my vintage booth at the Queen of Hearts in Buford.

“Come see me in Serendipity booth Market Street, but don’t wait too long, as pieces sell quickly.”

New Annie Sloan Black & White Waxes And Sanding Pads Are Here!

Annie’s new waxes have arrived at Chalk It Up Norcross! We have been playing with the new Black and White Waxes, and honestly, we can not choose a favorite. They both offer amazing and very different options for furniture, cabinets, and accessories.

HERE ARE SOME TIPS!

Annie Sloan's new black wax.
To apply the new Black Wax, use Clear Wax first, just like when using Dark Wax. Apply black in small sections, then wipe away. When using Black Wax over Graphite paint, the effect will be Black Black.

Use the White Wax directly over raw wood to create a “limed” look, plus it can be used over any of the Chalk Paint® colors to create a soft effect.

MORE TIPS

Apply the waxes with a sweeping motion, using the side of the brush, without baring down hard on the brush. After waxing a small section, simply wipe away excess, turning your cloth to a clean area often. Allow clear wax to dry at least 15 minutes before buffing it you want to achieve a sheen. Wait not longer that 24 hours to buff.

WE ALSO HAVE THE AWESOME NEW WASHABLE SANDING PADS AND ROLLERS!

Annie Sloan sanding pads.

Annie Sloan Sanding Pads come in packs of three, with one pad of each grade – fine (220 grit), medium (120 grit) and coarse (60 grit).

The fine pad can be used for light distressing or flat finishes, and for a delicate worn effect you can use the medium grade pad. If you prefer a rustic heavily distressed look the coarse pad will help make stunning results easy to achieve.

Annie Sloan foam rollers

Annie’s high quality sponge rollers are the perfect complement to the Annie Sloan Stencil collection. Available in Small and Large, they each feature an ergonomic wooden handle.

Refill sponge packs are also available in both sizes and contain seven replacement sponge heads per pack.

Annie Sloan’s Secret To Using Dark Wax!

How to use Annie Sloan Clear and Dark Wax wax2

Who doesn’t want a gorgeous, softly antiqued, waxed finish on some pieces?

We sure do!

Annie’s secret is simply to wax first with Clear Wax, wipe off any excess, then let sit up to 5 minutes before adding Dark Wax. The clear adds a sheen to the flat Chalk Paint®, and therefore the ability for the dark to glide beautifully on top.

If you skip the clear wax step, the result will be that the dark wax does not want to glide and remains “stuck” in place, it’s very dark, and can appear splotchy on larger surfaces.

After applying the Clear Wax, then use the Dark Wax, remove any excess product, and buff to a nice soft sheen.
