ANCORA ANNIE SLOAN CHALK PAINT / MORE ASCP

Buon venerdì a tutte!!!
Pronte per il fine settimana? Io SI! 
Oggi ancora un post in bianco... trasformazioni in bianco per la precisione.
Con il mio primo barattolo di vernice Annie Sloan in Pure White ho dato nuova vita ad un bel numero di oggetti, alcuni dei quali  vorrei condividere con voi oggi. Li avevo tutti ultimati prima delle vacanze ma non avevo ancora avuto modo di presentarveli. Non si è trattato di progetti importanti, ma sicuramente mi sono divertita  molto a mettere un abito nuovo ad oggetti che erano veramente anonimi e decisamente démodé.
La specchiera dorata, così di moda negli anni 80,  ha avuto il suo bel trattamento di pennello. Sorry, presa dall'entusiasmo ho dimenticato di scattare la foto del prima. Così è decisamente più attuale e meglio si adatta ai toni del bianco predominanti nel mio appartamento.


Happy Friday everyone!!!
Are you ready for the weekend?
Another white post today... actually it is all about white paint transformations.
With my first ASCP pot in pure white I gave new life to a whole bunch of pieces some of which I would like to share with you today.
They weren't actually big projects but I sure had a lot of fun with the makeovers of cheap, plain, and old fashioned pieces.
Here's what I did to a gilt mirror from the 80's. Golden frames were so much in fashion back then but look definitely out of place nowadays.
Sorry, no Before pic this time. I was so all caught up in the creating moment that forgot to grab my camera and take a picture.
Trust me, it looks so much better now, with some gold peeking through.



 Trovato in un mercatino per pochi euro questo candelabro vintage di ottone ha proprio cambiato aspetto. Ora, dipinto, carteggiato e invecchiato di cera fa bella mostra di sè sulla credenza riflettendo orgogliosamente la sua immagine nello specchio. 

Found at the flea for a few euro this vintage brass candelabrum definitely looks like a different piece now. Painted, distressed and aged with dark wax he now sits on my white buffet proudly reflecting his now charming self in the white shabby mirror.







Da brutto anatroccolo a cigno... il bianco ha dato carattere e chiccosità (si dice??????????) ad una vecchia sedia. 

From ugly duckling to swan: white paint gave character and chicness (does this word exist??????) to an old plain jane chair . 

 Avevo per le mani uno scampolo di damasco bianco che dovrebbe avere più o meno la mia età trovato anni fa nel baule di mia nonna, ed ho voluto utilizzarlo per ritappezzare la seduta.
Rifare la seduta da sola non è stato facile, ma poi armata fino ai denti di gomma piuma, sparapunti, pazienza e decine di tutorials ho avuto la meglio.

I had a scrap of white damask fabric on hand which is more or less my age. Found it in my late grandmother's chest when whe passed away and never had a chance to use it.
As I was not willing to spend money to have it professionally re-upholstered I decided to do it myself. It was no easy task for a novice but with lots of foam, a good stapler, patience and the help of great video tutes I made it! I was so proud of myself. Not bad for a first timer I dare say 






 Vi auguro un buon fine settimana!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
Rita

  17. Isn't it amazing how much better some things look painted, especially white? The candle holder looks like it has a patina about it with the wax. Really beautiful. Good eye, seeing what they could be.

  27. Your company may have an exemption to spouse as second driver, or some of them.
    That proposal is possible because the Thunderbird is available for citizens from participating VWP countries, you will not need air conditioning in the summer heat.

  37. The more you use Paphos Car Hire to drive through California, be careful because it is a great
    choice for those travelers who only use cash or
    debit cards, so that can drive properly. You can also have TV and CD player are also
    included into paphos car hire prices. The Russian market deviates
    considerably and there are coastal areas where you can search either by
    text or voice more on this further down.
