A little lunch time quickie DIY with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

before and after loo

Here is a little Easter quickie! A lunch break project I did a few weeks back of a pine bookshelf which lives in our loo and was a complete eyesore and overflowing with old magazines and papers. A little bit of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey with a touch of Old White, some sanding of the edges, a touch of distressing, some clear wax and a buff and shine and it is now a pretty little loo cupboard!

Do you ever do a quickie project?

Have a wonderful Easter weekend and I hope you all spend lots of time with people you love doing what you love
