I have a new project for you! It’s a painted cross on a cushion using Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan (my blog sponsor). This is the easiest DIY you’ll ever do. I can’t claim the creativeness of this one… my girlfriend text me earlier this week and asked if I thought it would be a good idea to paint a cross on a cushion using chalk paint and did I have any websites I could show her for inspiration? I said that’s a brilliant idea and I was going to copy her haha! Thanks Penny!
I bought 2 very underwhelming cushions from Kmart for $5 each. They were very creased, so I ironed them, cut the tags off and got ready to slap on some paint. So, did you know Chalk Paint can also be painted on to fabric? It won’t peel or flake!
Ta-dah! Two coats later with a thick brush and I have some crosses in brilliant white on the boring black cushions.
I put one on my Acapulco chair and the other in Tex’s room. This project took about 20 minutes all up. It dried really fast too. Are you up for this job?
Happy DIY-ing! ♥ KC.
