annie sloan and sundays!!

Hi, its sunday afternoon, i`m still covered in paint, i`m sure it used to be a day of rest!.. I have painted, juggled the kids and made a feta,cherry tomato and pesto tart as we seem to be eating to much processed rubbish at the moment and now i feel like i`m getting a really bad cold, so i`m blogging on the sofa and feeling sorry for myself!!! Still, blogs...great place to whinge!!! Not sure how good it is for the rest of you to read my complaining but for me its great! Haha!
 Anyway, i have to say i`m completely in love with Annie sloan paint, I have spent so many hours of my life sanding...not great for the ezcema, and i usually have to paint about 4 coats on my furniture but have tried annie sloan paint on a sideboard of mine and its done in 2 coats and no sanding!!! its like magic paint,the finish is so chalky my husband was laughing at me because i got so excitied using it!! It just sticks to surfaces perfectly and when you`ve finished painting you wax over it and it deepends the colour slightly for a slight aged colour which looks great!! I did my sideboard in old white and then used clear wax.
Anyway thats enough from me, better stop or i might just start complaining again.... you`ve been a great listener!! xFiFi
