Handmade Runner With Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Design

Add textile medium to Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg

Copy image and cut out with exacto knife

For this project I used the part that I cut out to do a positive stencil
I used a glue stick to keep the image in place on my canvas

Using a damp seasponge, dab the paint around the image being very
careful to apply it straight down to keep the image from shifting

Lift the image carefully

~Fast forward~
Add fabric to each end (I used fabric the color of duck egg),
line it with plain canvas, add a ruffle on each end

Top stitch the seam on each side with a decorative stitch
You can see it here on the right side

Add vintage lace to the ruffle on the solid side to dress it up

Now, you have a reversible runner

I like this side as much as the painted side


Linking to the following parties:


  1. Love it, duck egg blue is so pretty!

  2. Love how this turned out and of course Duck Egg Blue is one of my favorites....thanks for showing us....

  3. Hi Rhonda, The runner is beautiful and I also like both sides.

    The snake...I crossed the street and made my husband take the picture! I hate them too.

  4. I like both sides too. Love the natural look.

  5. That's very pretty, Rhonda! I love the color of this paint and the fabric you used on that side.
