Paint a Lampshade Annie Sloan Style

The one thing that we surely love around here is CHALK PAINT® by Annie Sloan! Last week we shared with you where our favorite treasure hunting spots are! On our journey we found a fabulous vintage lamp that didn't need much, but a little touch of Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan.

When we got back to the shop I could hardly wait to transform the lamp shade! I chose to do a "wash" with Annie's "Coco" and "French Linen." The wash technique is fairly easy. You dip the brush in water then apply a light brush of "Coco", then "French Linen" right over it letting the coco peek through, giving the lamp shade lots of dimension!

We really loved the way it came out. With a quick wash of paint we brought this cutie up to date and back to life.

We love to see your Annie Sloan projects! Make sure to tag us when you do yours @OwlBoxVintage on Instagram and The Owl Box on Facebook!
