Looking for a little more texture with your paints? Look no further than Chalk Paint™ decorative paint! Annie Sloan™ has done it again with beautiful colors to go with any decor. We here at Hueology, used her fabulous neutrals, French Linen and Old White.
A little sanding, clear wax by Annie Sloan and sweet little girl’s initial, per our customer’s request, and voila!!! Paloma pairs great with Pure white too!

Find us painting at Total Bliss most days… please visit if your near NC!!!
This cherry desk was originally slotted to go in our lovely spot at Total Bliss in Summerfield, NC (where we bought the stunning stencil). It never made it out of the garage at MJ’s… let’s just say a “passer byer”saw it, loved it & bought it. What more can we say.
Trish was just happy to grab a few pictures before we had to see it go…aren’t you glad we did? Now to find another great find to do it all over again!!!
This weathered wood, even though NOT painted, is beautiful in itself. You can achieve this look in several ways, from washes, bleaches, or simply digging through old piles of wood that are naturally aged! The piece below came off of a pile from the gun range on Trish’s property, Shane’s Sporting Clays. You can even see the shot pieces left from years ago…How cool is that? (Pictures to come soon of the table made from this same piece of wood.)
And finally, the end of the can. There is a sense of gratification when you get to the bottom! The hard part is when you are in the middle of a project and have to run to the store to grab another can… or 10!!!
We are sharing a little project from last year, but decided it was a great time to honor our troops and praise them for our freedom!!! This was a fun time to bring together the perfect color combo for the good ol’ U.S.A.!!!
We at Hueology are thankful for our freedoms from this who have served. We can make things we choose and share time with our friends and families from their sacrifices for our county.
Here are the Chalk Paint™ colors we used in this simple & fun flag project:
Just finding photos from an afternoon project on my phone and trying the blog app…
Found these cool old trays at a “picker’s” house. I love them without paint, BUT that didn’t last long…
I grabbed a few colors of Chalk Paint™ on hand and a brush…
And maybe a stencil or two…

Some days it’s just nice to have a friend to paint with. We had fun doing this demo at Splurges Boutique in Greensboro, NC. It was nothing super fancy, just a little Chalk Paint™ decorative paint, distressing and wax (sorry for no “before” photo).
We tried out the new color, Florence by Annie Sloan…YUM!!! This color is like that lively fun friend you always like to hang with, goes most anywhere, and can count on in time of need for cheering up. Annie has her own beautiful descriptions of her colors on her site, make sure to stop by for a visit!!!
What do you like to do with friends? Paint, giggle, paint, shop, paint, eat, paint, laze around at the beach…did we mention PAINT?
Step 1: Measure and start taping any design you choose! We went simple for trial rug # 1. The possibilities are endless!!! Make sure to get your tape down good as to avoid bleeding. We love Frog brand tape as it really holds to the fabric well.
Tadaa there you have it folks, “50 Shades of Annie Sloan Grey”!!! Okay, maybe it turned out to be only 5 shades, but the # 50 sounds so much better, agree? Maybe you should read the book and see for yourself. Don’t say we didn’t warn you, it’s a bit NAUGHTY… The entire project took about 3 hours.
We have something so SUPER special, we can’t keep it a secret any longer!!! We at Hueology and Total Bliss support the Drake Naylor Invitational (in honor of Trish’s precious boy, Drake). ALL the proceeds go to help the GSO Cerebral Palsy Assoc. and their “special children”.
