When it comes to different projects, color is very important. If you paint something the wrong shade it isn't going to look right. You will want to repaint it and that just takes extra time. It would be best to get it right the first time.
When you look at the annie sloan Chalk Paint colors chart, you can see all the colors that they offer. You can start with a shade you are thinking about going with and see if anything looks good to you. You will want to pick a color you like as well as one that will go with the rest of the room that your project is going to be in.
If you are still not sure about the color after looking at the chart you can ask other people what they think. Tell them what your project is and what the room it is going in looks like. Other people might be able to give you ideas.
Once you have picked your colors, plan to buy enough paint for what you need. Think about how much paint it will take and try to buy it all at one time. You don't want to run the risk of them running out of a color you need to finish your project.
Plan a day when you can paint and get everything done. You will need to have time to do this so you are not rushed. If you have young children it would be a good idea to have them be somewhere else so they don't get into the paints.
Once you are done, give your project enough time to dry. Make sure it is before you put it where it needs to go. You don't want to end up with paint everywhere. Move things around if need be and make sure you put it in a good place.
After you have it done and put where it is supposed to go, take pictures and share with friends. Let people see what you did and let them know what colors you used. They might want to try a similar project.
After you finish you might want to go and paint something else. There are a lot of things you can do and you can either stick with the same color or go with something different. Sometimes people spend all their free time painting projects and other people only do them once or twice a year. Find a good balance and enjoy painting and picking out colors when you have the chance to do so.
