Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan

Have you ever wondered how to get that vintage French look for your furniture and decor? Well, I recently discover this AMAZING paint called Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan, which can transform virtually anything into a vintage masterpiece. The texture has a matte, velvety finish resembling chalk (but is not chalkboard paint). It has gained worldwide popularity for its easy use and the fact you do not need any preparation. No stripping, sanding or priming is needed and the paint will adhere perfectly well to almost any surface including wood, glass, metal and plastic. The possibilities are not just limited to interiors but imagine transforming a beautiful frame or table centerpiece for your wedding or next event. Your guests will be so impressed when they find out you created these pieces. Check it out!

One of the biggest challenges when it comes to wedding and event decor is transforming the space. However, these ribbon walls from The Heirloom Shop are a beautiful and cost-effective solution to dress up a boring wall or cover something that you do not want to be seen at your event. They are perfect for a dessert table backdrop or photo booth area and will add that special touch to your event.
