Black and White Wax Week: Our Before and Afters

________________________________________________________
We here at Sisters Unique had such a fabulous time during the Black and White Wax Week, July 18th - 24th.  Joy and Renea did a wonderful job hosting live demos every afternoon, featuring various ways in which you can use the new Black and White Chalk Paint® waxes. Thank you to everyone who came out to learn, laugh, and be creative with us! If you didn't make it, here's a recap of what went down:
_________________________________________________________

Monday: "A Face Lift"

While this table was lovely with it's Provence base and white wash, it is now truly a piece of art.  Joy worked her magic by applying layers of Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan, Black Wax, and a special touch of Lime Shine stencil cream.  The Black Wax really did a beautiful job of bringing out all of the details. 
BEFORE
AFTER
  

Tuesday: "It's a Mess"

Our little end table has come quite a long way!  Once tired and worn, it is now to look new.  The jeweled hardware, along with the Black Wax has done a lot to jazz it up!
BEFORE
AFTER

Wednesday: "Let's See What Happens!"

The great thing about Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan is that you don't have to use a lot to use a lot to make a big impact!  Take these tables for example: originally worn and scratched, we breathed new life into them with a few layers of Graphite Chalk Paint® and Black Wax on the tops, sides and legs.  The finishing touch came when we rubbed a little gold Gilding Wax on the feet and hardware!
BEFORE
AFTER

Thursday: "Miss-Matched Chair"

I don't think we need to say much...just take a look!  Renea did a beautiful job applying Coco Chalk Paint® and White Wax, completing transforming this chair.
BEFORE
AFTER

Friday: "Same Mirror, Different Direction"

Same mirror, two totally different outcomes.  While they started off a bit subdued these pieces now shine, with the addition of Black and White wax. Pictures just don't do this one justice.
BEFORE
AFTER
That's a wrap! We can't wait to do it again and see where creativity and Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan takes us. Endless possibilities....
If you were inspired by one of our demos or something you learned this week, we'd love to hear about it! Share your creativity on our Facebook or Instagram (@sistersunique).
Happy creating!

Event: #AnnieSloanLate

We were very excited to host the very first #AnnieSloanLate Event Friday, November 21st, which was a worldwide event held by the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Stockist to support local business', support local charity, and have fun!

 

We were proud to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with our raffle donations and collected $250 for the great cause.  We also had hourly giveaways of workshops and paint. 

Our grand prize raffle winner, Roisin Preble (below), won a gift bag filled with Annie Sloan products. She was a very happy camper and it was so neat to find out that her father presented an award to the founder of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital way back in the day!

 

While people were shopping and enjoying the festive atmosphere, we did live painting demonstrations, such as stenciling Christmas gift paper for your packages (or any packaging really!)

 

A sample of the 102 Workshop boards (a winter themed of course!)

(Look at that Annie Sloan Craqueleur on the kitty! Not winter themed, but this kitty could be someone's Christmas present!)

Molly Skivington from Unfolded was visiting us for Annie Sloan Late and it was great having her around the demo table. 

Molly made beautiful custom colors and the customers loved it!! Annie's Chalk Paint® colors mix so beautifully and it was intriguing to watch.

While Molly custom mixed color sticks, Joy repurposed old ornaments into some fun, polka dotted schemes with her favorite custom color green (1 pt Olive to 2 pt English Yellow).

 

Even our workshop tree has repurposed ornaments (made out of old bulbs, painted with Emperor's Silk, waxed, and added wire to hang them)

It was a wonderful evening and we are so grateful for all who came out to enjoy the festivities! We have amazing customers who are so supportive, fun, and just downright awesome!
