Okay okay, I know what you’re thinking. “Didn’t she JUST redo this playroom a few months ago…?!”
And the answer is YES.
I tried to love all black and white.
And…for my home, I didn’t love it.
And…the rug got stained beyond repair.
So I moved this carpet tile rug in here.
And then nothing worked anymore.
And so…I busted out my chalk paint!!
(Metal wall baskets from Hobby Lobby | Wooden crates from TJ Maxx | Curtains are medium weight drop cloths from Home Depot | Chalk board is vintage)
For this project, I used the chalk paint sprayer from Amy Howard [HERE] to update the kids’ metal daybed, the wooden letters up top, and a couple of other items in the space. I used the color Credenza from Amy Howard [HERE] which is a creamy, pale mix between robin’s egg blue and green/grey. SUCH a pretty color!
(I also used the color on this vintage dresser project!)
I was interested in trying out this chalk paint sprayer, because other sprayers I’ve used with regular paint are SO heavy. This one is actually pretty lightweight comparatively, and it did a nice job creating an even spray on all of the items. The only issue I had was a bit of bubbling when I held the sprayer in one spot for too long. The bubbles went away pretty quickly before they could dry, but I should have kept things going in a continuous motion…instead of getting distracted by a wayward squirrel chirping at me for being too close to the fallen pecans. 😳 😂 The only other thing I’d mention is that the sprayer says it’s made specifically for Amy Howard chalk paint, so not sure if other brands can/should be used with it? Couldn’t hurt to try as most chalk paint seems to be of similar consistency, but just FYI.
Overall, I was pretty darn happy with the results! The soft, creamy, pale blue/grey/green of Amy Howard’s Credenza color speak to my soul, and I’m glad I kept a few black metal touches in here, too. A little bit modern farmhouse, a little bit cozy cottage, and a whole lotta playing!
Raise your hand if you think this area stayed styled like this after the pics for more than three minutes…?
My hand isn’t up either.
