Painted Ikea frame


I found this paint in my local craft shop LOVED the colour (it matches Mindy - my car) and figured I'd give it a try to make the frame below a bit more interesting


The paint has a similar finish to Annie Sloan but perhaps a bit more chalky. I did two coats and gave it about an hour in between to dry. It doesn't stick well so thin coats are best. Once its dry the paint does stick which is good (I worried it might not for a while there) and drys darker and brighter - closer to the colour of the label.

Didn't turn out too badly! I think the paint is great for small projects but I'm not sure I'd use it for the big ones until I get more used to it.


Sorry about the poor lighting - it's difficult taking good photos at the moment!
