But, I wasn't the only one busy at work last week....sweet Schotzie had a week's vacation and this little dynamo earned a new title ~ Queen of the Chalk Paint!"
She made her own chalk paint, which was okay, but she decided it wasn't worth it when compared to using Annie Sloan chalk paint. Here's a peek at some of her work...The white is homemade and the grey is Annie Sloan chalk paint in French Linen.
|this is her bed BEFORE|
Here's the AFTER
and some more...
If you're not familiar with chalk paint let me just say IT'S THE BOMB!! No sanding or priming! A side note....this little chest of drawers at my sewing station (picture #6) was also painted with the AS French Linen.
There's more to last week, especially last Saturday, but I'm saving that for next week's blog!
A quick shout-out to my upcoming show at Unique Boutique. For those of you in town, an important note...the location has been changed from Gridley MS to SECRIST MS. Here's some more info...
I hope your week was grand and that this new week ~ Happy October! ~ is even grander!! Thank you so much for your visit and I hope to see you again next Monday.
