White Washing Terracotta Tile with Chalk Paint®

I white washed my kitchen table with Chalk Paint® decorative paint in Old White last summer and have been loving the look...

And I've been wanting to paint my terra cotta tile floors ever since. I have loved having them throughout my kitchen, laundry room and sunroom for their practical use, but am not loving the color!

It's just a little too red for me so, I have been thinking of using Chalk Paint® in a wash of Old White. 

I tested the color on this sample and like what I am seeing. (It's not quite as pink as it looks here.)The question then was, should I apply Annie's Lacquer over it to protect. I asked the experts at the Annie Sloan Unfolded FB page and the answer was YES! 

This is a BIG project so I plan on painting my kitchen first and will post the results. Keep your fingers crossed!!

Happy Painting!  Rachel
