My New Friend, Sherwin Williams March 21, 2012

Annie Sloan, move over dear. I need to make room on the shelf for my new friend. Sherwin’s his name. Sherwin Williams.

20120321-222015.jpg This little beauty is looking lovely, if I don’t mind saying so myself!

I shopped at Sacramento’s Madison Avenue store and Craig, the assistant manager, couldn’t have been more helpful! Sherwin sells quart samples, for $6.69! Paint comes in these great plastic, wide mouth jugs with a screw on lid and convenient handle. $6.69!

I primed the piece first and then, two coats of the latex enamel were needed for complete coverage.

Here’s a sweet little shelf I got at Veranda, to display some of my goodies.

It needed some love, so I painted it this wonderful shade of blue.

I will beg Mr. Wonderful, to use his sprayer, if I ever find another lattice piece that needs painting. Painting lattice by hand is very time consuming but I love the bright color!

I should receive my new pillow covers from the seamstress tomorrow and I look forward to showing you!

Thanks for visiting!!
Cheers!,
Barbara

      Hello Jane! I’m glad to hear from you! Your blog has been pretty quiet, so I knew you were super busy! Can’t wait to see photos!

    It is refreshing to remember there are other paint treatments (and paints) than ASCP. I have used ASCP on over a dozen projects so far and have become somewhat fixated. Your post reminds me to remember other (and often more reasonable) treatments. Nice job and thank you!

      Good morning Gerrie! Thanks so much for stopping by. I’d love to see your ASCP projects and am headed over to your place now!

    Barbara I will definitely be trying this! Your pieces are beautiful; lovely lines on your table and the bright lattice shelf is so cheering!

    I must get a sprayer as I have some metal patio pieces ( rolling cart, plant stand) that need a redo! Then I will give them to my daughter.

      I can’t wait to be hired as chief decorator for my kids! Ha!! They aren’t yet at the point where they need my services, but will in a few years after they finish school. Question is, will they WANT my services! 🙂

    What a find on the paint. I will be sure to give it a try. I recently bought Annie Sloan, but it’s certainly not inexpensive. Thanks for the tip and enjoy your weekend!

    Could you tell me how the finish differed from the Annie Sloan? Of course there was no chalk component but did drying time differ and were there streaks in the paint. If there were streaks I imagine sanding helped. Very pretty side table. I love the blue with the white. Thank you for the inspiration.

    Oh I forgot. Did you wax the pieces afterwards or cover them in poly? Thank you from all the way over in Boston, MA!
