I painted Owen’s crib grey. Or gray. I never really know. Here’s the long overdue post about the grey crib.
I swear to you, it wasn’t supposed to be a “wild idea.” But it happened irregardless. And I am so glad it did because it is my favorite piece in Owen’s nursery (besides him, of course).
I do highly suggest soaking your Annie Sloan brush overnight to let the stray bristles fall out. I didn’t do this and ended up having to pick hairs out of the paint before it dried. It was just annoying more than anything.
At the end of it all, I’m really happy with the finish and appearance of the crib. I learned a lot and am even not afraid to use the chalk paint again. I know how to do it right and I’m sure the next project, whenever and whatever it may be, will go much more smoothly.
I’m just so darn proud of my handy work. 😉
