This is my first attempt at white chalk paint and really all I did to prepare was watch a few youtube videos. I liked the idea of the Annie Sloan white Chalk paint because you don’t have to strip back the staining prior to painting.
The hallstand here, is certainly not an expensive furniture piece, but holds a sentimental value this was one of the first furniture pieces me and my hubby bought when we moved in together~ about 10 years ago. This little hallstand has traveled around to about 9- 10 homes along the way (yes I always joke both me and hubby must have been gypsies is a past life. lol)

So all I did was apply the white chalk paint straight from the can to the timber and waxed after. So Easy!
Video Tutorials how to white wash with chalk paint.
In these videos, the tutorial shows you how you can white wash (adding some water to the white chalk paint) this would be ideal if the timber was a light colour ~ as in the video using Oak.
Also I only put up step 2 and 3, because step one was just showing the furniture piece and discussing the cravings ect.
