Annie Sloan…my first experiment…

So, I finally put all my research and new paint to the test…Could this paint actually be better than regular acrylic paint? Was it going to be as amazing as what everyone has said it to be…well, let me tell you…It’s definitely AMAZING!!  I’m in love…I took this little old brown wooden end table that I found at a garage sale for $5, painted it with Old White, then with Province Blue…distressed it and then waxed it…and now I have this wonderful little addition to my home that I absolutely LOVE!  The pictures really don’t do it justice…it feels super smooth, too…I cannot wait to get started on my next piece…I ordered some more paint and new brushes…I do have to say…this paint is awesome…but it is very expensive… 😦  That is the ONLY thing not amazing about this paint!!!





About The Old Cypress House

Mother-wife-friend-artist...I love to paint...I have always loved painting...I like to take something old and make it new again...with paint! Actually, I just like making stuff...DIY-that should be my initials! The Old Cypress House got started with a single plank of cypress wood given to me by my brother. I painted Tiger Eyes on it (LSU Tiger Eyes, to be exact...Geaux Tigers!). From that moment on, I couldn't do enough of them. I ventured into Fleur de Lis, Jazz guys...whatever anyone suggested. Then my husband helped tear down a cypress house that was built in 1889 and brought me home loads and loads of more wood, including the old cypress windows that were in the house...I could hardly contain my excitement! The possibilities are endless. This blog is going to showcase my work. It will mostly be on cypress...but, I'm sure I'll venture into other areas of art projects. I have so many ideas spinning around in my head. I hope you enjoy my work. If you see something you like or have an idea, please let me know...I'll be in my shop! "If you hear a voice inside of you say 'you cannot paint', by all means, paint...and that voice will be silenced" ~ Vincent Van Gogh View all posts by The Old Cypress House
