    Beautiful lady's desk and chair. This new chalk paint made a fantastic transformation. I am thinking of trying a new project with chalk paint. Do you have to use the distressed method? I have never done that and am just a little nervous.. You ladies out there do it so well, I am afraid mine will just look scarred. Is there a special technique for distressing?
    Thanks for sharing this beauty. Hugs, Ginger

    Okay- That does it! I am going to HAVE to order some and try it! It is unbelievable the projects I have seen done with this. I am amazed at the coverage..and wonder too if you have to distress it to make it look right!? Hugs- Diana

    That looks great, Julie! Has the hubster reconsidered his thoughts on it? : ) I think it would make a great desk in a Mom cave. When I get to do one for myself, I want to have enough desk/table top because I like to keep what I'm working on out and in view. Something with a large top will allow me to do that and not feel cluttered. I do want to give this paint a try having read about it all over blogland, and I'm hoping to hear back about an inquiry I made. So maybe soon!

    How have I never heard of this amazing Chalk Paint before? The table and chair look fabulous! I've been itching to redo a piece of furniture lately. Think I might head out the door and go scour some thrift stores. đŸ™‚ Thanks for the inspiration!

    It's simply gorgeous. I love it in your bed room, it reminds me of a suite that way. Everyone needs a table they can quietly work at and this is perfect. Stopping by via SNS link party, have a wonderful weekend, xxx tami

    You certainly needed to win that paint because you made such good use of it. The desk/table is so pretty and looks perfect in that room.

    I love it! How do you apply the wax? Is it used just for protection? Does it add a sheen?
