HOW TO PAINT A SHABBY CHIC WHITE DRESSER - annie sloan chalk paint




I like painting furniture in 
shabby chic whites and I like
creating silky smooth finishes.
Let me share six tips on how I
do this while using a paint brush.




These tips are based on using ASCP to create a
shabby chic finish with light distressing.


TIP: #1
Start with a clean soft, medium to high quality paint brush.
A dirty brush or a cheap brush will work against you.

     

TIP: #2
Brush your paint in one direction, usually with the grain of
 the wood. Do not linger while you are painting, be quick with
 your strokes and move along.


TIP: #3
Each coat should be brushed in the same direction.

SANDED                                        NOT SANDED
TIP: #4
Use a 220 grit sand paper to smooth the surface.
Sand in the same direction as your brush strokes.

NOTE: Annie Sloan Chalk Paint sands very easily.


TIP: #5
Continue smoothing with your sand paper and do a little extra around details.


TIP: #6
The final step to ASCP is waxing. After your surface is smoothed out waxing becomes even easier.

  

I wet distressed the the vintage pulls on this project.
