A Book Well Worth Buying!
on April 19, 2012
I just completed reading Annie Sloans newest book, Quick and Easy Paint Transformations. Chalk paint is a unique and historical medium and with it you do not have to prime your piece first, saving both time and money.
I found this book very helpful as I learned many "Tips & Trade Secrets" that would had taken me years to learn through trial and error. I particularily like learning how Sloan selects which colors for which projects, how she uses her paint in layers and her unique color combinations. It was a complete and deightful surprise to learn that this paint can also be used on metal, cement, floors, walls as well as wood furniture.
I recommend also buying the $5.00 handpainted paint chart as well. I liked having that chart in hand to review the colors of each project and to not have to flip back and forth to the back of the book where the other chart (printed on glossy paper and not as accurate to my eye)is located.
If you are interested in restoring or beautifying furniture or plan to do any DYI hand painting, this is the book for you.
