Painted side table

I painted this side table a soft grey first then applied a blue wash over that.  After distressing the edges with a sander I applied white wax from Classic Home (purchased at Wal Mart) and buffed. This wax is a liquid, about pancake batter consistency and I really like how it buffs out.  Application can be a little messy if you are like me, so you should wear gloves.
I really love this piece and want to keep it for my bathroom remodel. However, I am going to sell it. I can't keep everything, or so my husband tells me.
Used Rustoleum Chalked Paint and Waverly Chalk Paint.

Pretty in Pink Painted Mason Jars

Here's a real easy project for you.
Painted Mason jars. 
I use chalk paint, Waverly Chalk paint, on these. I just use a base white and add drops of my acrylic craft paints to produce the different shades.  
First, clean the jars well. I wash them in soap and warm water.  When they are completely dry I paint one coat.  After that dries I apply a second coat. It usually takes about an hour in controlled indoor environment for it to dry.  After the second coat is completely dry I take sandpaper and rub off the letters and logo on the jars.  In addition, since I like the rustic shabby look I add more areas that are rubbed down to the glass.  When I am done I seal with a matte spray.  I have also waxed the jars to seal in the past. Let that dry and you are good to go!
