White Chippy Look

One of my new favourite looks is the chippy paint look.  It's a bit different than regular distressing.  It has more of an "aged outside" appearance.  It's a more severe look, but I absolutely love it done with Pure White by Annie Sloan.

I use a different sized scrapers while the paint is tacky... not quite totally dry.  I picked up a set of scrapers from Hobby Lobby on my last trip to Buffalo.

Here are a few projects where I've done the chippy finish using Annie Sloan Pure White.

These 2 bookcases are actually IKEA Hemnes I bought 10 years ago.  Why sell them for pennies, when I could do a few coats of paint and make them look brand new!!
