As our move is approaching, I have been having a hard time focusing on the
important things I am supposed to be doing around the house, such as getting the garage sale together and packing. I had planned to have everything together to have my garage sale today, but I just CAN'T stop painting things!! I think I have a problem!
I decided to put caster's on the coffee table (see post here) and I think everything looks better on wheels, what do you think?
|this wheel looks crooked but I think it's the angle|
|I had to put the table outside so the kids wouldn't|
scratch it up before it was fully cured
(because they did and I had to repaint it)
|Fixed!!! Plus, a new sign!|
(and a peek of my AMAZING find!)
So, this is where my love of chalk board paint started. Then...I was thinking about a mirror I had painted a couple of months ago. I scratched the mirror while sanding the frame. It wasn't that noticeable, but I could see it. I fixed that!!
I found her at the Salvation Army last weekend. I had to keep walking back and forth waiting (hoping) that the guy that wouldn't just walk away, would decide against it! I finally walked up and asked, and he told me to go ahead and take it! Of course I was....and at $14.99, I was SOLD! I think her name should be Vivian :-)
|I just LOVE the print on the paper|
It was fate....I had never been there before!
Well, that doesn't end my obsession with the paint.
Remember this desk?
|you can read the post here|
I thought I had this desk sold, but when it didn't, I decided instead of selling it I would paint it for myself. I wanted to be able to use it with my little chair (posted here) so I needed to tone it DOWN! I sanded down the drawer fronts, and yep, chalkboard paint! I also sanded down the entire desk to remove the shine, and distress it. My goal was to soften the yellow and I think I did, but not as much as I want to. I sprayed the original hardware with the Pistachio paint....do you think they go together ok???
(these pictures were taken at night)
My plan is to do a white wash over the yellow to attempt to soften it further. BUT, it will have to wait. I promised the hubby I would wait till we are moved. So in the trailer it went.....and I got the garage sale together today. Hopefully Friday I'll have a good sale!
Thanks for stopping by!! Would love some feedback!
