DIY nautical table numbers
One day I got a lovely email asking if I would be interested in sharing the Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan goodness with my readers. Naturally I jumped at the opportunity because I’ve used these paints for many projects in the past and love them to death! They’re mostly used on furniture pieces but I wanted to do something different, show how freakin’ awesome they are for other applications too!
Wedding season has hit us down under and for me that means lots and lots of orders through my etsy store! I love making things for peoples special days but I REALLY love teaching people how to make their own wedding day goodies.
Nautical is always a popular theme for weddings and right now it’s bigger than ever! If you have a nautical event coming up these will be perfect!
Here’s how to make them…
Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan
Annie Sloan Clear Wax
Clean scrap fabric
Good quality masking tape
Cut your blocks to size and give them a good sand to smooth up the freshly cut edges. Mine are 15cm heigh.
Put a bit of white paint into a container and add water. You only need a little bit of paint. Mix the paint and water together. Brush some onto a scrap piece of wood to make sure you are happy with the level of transparency. If you want it more transparent, just add more water. It you want it more opaque just add a bit more paint.
