A Fun Filled Chalk Paint Day........

We started out on a sunny day in January to this beautiful place....
located in the seaside town of Bristol RI
It was a long anticipated class on chalk paint techniques.
Here is our instructor the super talented Nancy Chace owner of sea rose cottage

nancy had lots of beautiful examples of different finishes

the waxes finish off a piece to perfection
that's my good friend jackie (blonde) of the beautiful shop & blog
bliss farm antiques it was so nice to spend the day with her.

one of nancy's fabulous painted pieces. looks so old world & aged to perfection
nancy also kept us well fed during class
it was a fabulous class & of course I went home & got my hands on this repro mora clock & painted away
the light was a little funky for photos but you get the picture right?
i also decided to give a gold mirror new life
so happy about the way these two projects turned out & it's all thanks to the wonderful class nancy  taught. she will be attending the annie sloane workshop (one of many she has taken) coming to boston in april. if you live in ri. ma. or ct. check out nancy's blog for any upcoming classes. can't wait to see what new techniques she may share with us! more of my projects soon in an upcoming post. I Hope you are having a happy & productive monday! xoxo 


  1. Oh I have been meaning to try this paint!
    I am such a spray paint queen! haha
    It really looks like a beautiful result when you finish.

    I have the perfect piece to give it try on...

    Have a wonderful week Chris!

  6. That must have been a lot of fun! Just look at all those cans of chalk paint! I love the way your clock turned out and the mirror, too. I did a paint project today and I really should have gone and gotten some more chalk paint for it. I'm not totally thrilled with the outcome, but it was my free quart of paint from Ace, so it's not a total loss!
