Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Class {Sneak Peek}

I attended a Annie Sloan class @ Wonderfaux Studios this past Saturday! If you live in or around the Houston area, YOU need to take a class! I learned so much! I am so grateful for the experience and I enjoyed my classmates and my "Wonderfaux" teacher and new friend, Michelle. We have a lot in common and she let me crack my jokes and even laughed! :) Lol!

She is a talented and creative woman with a thriving business to match! I am super excited that she is bringing Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to the NW area of Houston. It is quite the drive for those of us over here! She is renting a booth at
Antique Gallery and will be opening soon! So look for her! She will be renting next to one of my friend, Michella from The Gypsy Caravan too! Small world it is, even in Houston!

Here are my projects from my class! I am going to be sharing more about how I got each look...so stay tuned for that! I wanted to show you all how "wonderfaux" they turned out! I have looked at them million times and probably drooled all over them, as well...I have showed Mr. Screaming Meme and my 3 Screaming Boys...a million more times and I get the impression they may be tired of seeing them...I guess I can start on all my neighbors and FB friends...poor souls won't know what hit them...lol

I am proud and excited and I will be taking more classes from Michelle and her AWESOME crew! I will be a die hard Wonderfaux Crony, peep and studious student! She teaches an array of classes and I plan on attending all of them!


Okay here are my practice boards...This was my first try and I think they turned out wonderful! It was easy and anyone can do this! I promise!






Paloma and Provence...waxed with clear and lightly with dark wax over the clear...



Versailles...waxed with both clear and dark wax...This looks like a brown mustard in person...


Emperor's Silk with clear and dark wax...I love the red...waxed or not...gorgeous!







Cream with clear and dark wax...Beautiful isn't it? I am most proud of this one...I love the layered effect! I will post more on how to's soon...







Wonderfaux Studios has graciously offered to give my followers and stalkers a chance to win Annie Sloan Clear & Dark Waxes...I will be setting that giveaway up in the beginning of July. Whoever wins will win both cans of wax...yay! You will want to use both waxes to achieve some of the looks I showed today! If you want to order any Annie Sloan Chalk paint or waxes, I recommend Wonderfaux Studios...They are a great company and they ship all their orders out promptly! Love that!


Thank you again to Wonerfaux Studios and Anita @
Cedar Hill Ranch for the chance to learn something new! It is a gift that I will treasure and I will take that gift and "pay it forward"! If you have not been by Anita's blog...You need to! She is a lovely woman with a gorgeous home! It is a blog you will want to follow...that I know for sure!


XoXo, Meme

These boards look great and I love Anita's blog. Love how the cream board looks crackled. Hope you share that soon. I have an armoire to paint soon.
