When I was a little girl I took a ceramics class with my Mama, her sister and three of my cousins. The class was held at a very nice lady’s house named Pat. Long story short, we all turned out LOTS of stuff like these birds. In fact the rooster was one of my Mama’s projects from that very class. It sat on her back porch for YEARS until I brought it home about a year ago and gave it Country French (sorta) makeover.
Today, the Quail get one.
Two really good coats of Annie Sloan Old White chalk paint and a tiny miracle happened.
What a lovely, calming effect Old White seems to have on anything you cover it with. If you are going to purchase your first chalk paint, let it be Old White.
Let this be a junkin’ lesson from your friend Paige:
Do not overlook the tacky.
And NEVER underestimate the power of paint!
