All it took was 1 little can
and I was hooked.
My first project was an old table
This morning I decided to attack the top of my sewing machine base and since several people have asked about Saltwash, I thought I would show you how easy it is to use.
Saltwash is a powder you can add to any paint and I prefer to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
I wasn't sure how much I would need for the table top and I probably could have used a little more paint.
The paint mixed with Saltwash goes on quite lumpy.
My first two projects I mixed the Saltwash with Pure White and used the darker color as the top coat - this time I used white as the top coat.
When shot from above the table, after sanding, the green pops through the white,
but from a side view, the table top looks white.
I like how the table top turned out, but whatever my next project is, I will use white as the undercoat.
I'm having fun using Saltwash - it's simple, quick and gives a fresh new look in the house and garden.
