Here's a wonderful article by Annie Sloan sharing 5 great Chic DIY Painted Garden Projects with Chalk Paint™, Written by Annie Sloan for Home Trends Magazine.
I bought this ladder in England, although it is French. I love the construction of French ladders, They look so complicated and intricate, and are wonderfully unique. I had this ladder in my shop for a while and then realized it would look great in the garden to sit plants on.
I painted the frame all over in a wash of my colour, Old White. You can create a wash with my paint just by adding water. Then you can paint straight onto the wood without priming first. I loved the idea of putting a different colour on each step too. So I did the steps in a variety of Chalk Paint™ colours – mainly cool colours with the occasional warm colour in between.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015, Chalk Paint™ is a unique, eco-friendly, formula that sticks to just about any surface – inside and outside the home – without the need for priming or sanding.
