"God has perfect timing. Never early and never late. It takes a lot of patience and a lot of faith." (Not sure who this quote belongs to, but a friend of mine had posted this on her Pinterest board. Thought I'd share this because it's something we ALL need to understand.. His timing is everything.)
Remember that photo I shared with you all of the antique buffet that I purchased?...
Well I am super psyched to tell you that I purchased my first order of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint this evening! .. I started small lol--but spent 'large'.
I ordered a quart of Old White to paint the buffet in.. and ordered the clear wax to put over top of it. I can't wait to get started!! But first I need to purchase some Zinsser (sp?) Shellac. My piece is pretty old looking (not sure how old it is though) but just in case it's THAT old, I feel as though I need to just cover my buffet in that before getting started with Annie.
I have a feeling that my piece would cause the 'bleeding' some say they experience when they paint old pieces. I'm very new at this. I had to purchase it online. I wasn't too happy to have to order it cause I hate to pay the extra money for shipping :( The closest store around me that sells ASCP is 50 miles away. I'm not about to drive that when I'd have the shipping costs in gas.
I did my research and looked at a few other websites that sold ASCP online and picked the cheapest possible way of getting the paint lol.. I still ended up spending around $73 on the paint, wax, & shipping costs.
Hopefully when my Etsy store gets running, I'll make some extra cash to buy more ASCP! Yeaa, wishful thinking I know ;p
