Annie Sloan Chalk Painted Chair embossed with Glitter {DIY}

SHOP Annie Sloan Chalk Paint///Visit the BLOG

Old Violet is a muted violet with gray undertones and undeniably one of my very favorite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors. This week the girly girl in me said, ADD GLITTER! Hmmm....is it possible?! There was only one way to find out and I went there! Here is what happened: I painted the chair as I normally would and let it dry. During the waxing phase I took a clean rag and scooped up some clear wax. I poured some glitter right on top of the wax and proceed to wax as I normally would. *Tip: Be careful to keep glitter out of the wax container by using a clean rag every time. You want glitter on one piece not everything!;-)

The glitter clumped, which was unexpected. Originally, I wanted flecks of glitter all over the chair. The clumping resulted in a glitter galaxy or embossing on the piece. I love it! Just enough glitz to complement without overpowering the piece Barbie style*wink*. It worked out so beautifully that I intend to do a second chair to match this one!

My boys love it! Look at those adorable honey bees;-)

Tip from Janet at The Empty Nest: "...next time if you want an allover glitter look, scoop some wax onto a paper plate and mix in the glitter. You can also mix in Mica Powders for a soft Mother of Pearl shimmer look...really sweet. Happy Painting!"

  2. Good Morning Heather,

    Great looking chair you have there and those two handsome boys only add to the beauty. They remind me of my two sons (30 and 31 years) ...give them lots of hugs, they grow up so very fast!. Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan in Old Violet is a gorgeous color isn't it?? I hope you don't mind a little tip...next time if you want an allover glitter look, scoop some wax onto a paper plate and mix in the glitter. You can also mix in Mica Powders for a soft Mother of Pearl shimmer look...really sweet. Happy Painting!

    Have a lovely day,
