chalk paint samples

french countryHello friends:

We all love the Shabby Chic look, country french furniture, the chalk paint is designed to transform a piece of furniture into a french shabby chic look alike.
Here is some inspirations pictures to get us in the mood, to start our series on painting with this great paint, I will give you some tips from my own mistakes, I'm still learning,  I did a beautiful picture frame in Louis Blue, and two shelves in Provence.

The French introduced the comfortable couches and chairs in the 1800, thus, shabby chic.
A Perfect Blend

I love this bedroom I cann't remember where it came from, but its lovely.
In our next post I will explain how I did it step by step.  Today just some fun inspiration from the South of France.

I love the color of the bed frame and the dresser in that bed room.
