We are all working hard to get things ready for the sale.
See the little guy without the shirt? That there is Elijah. He didn’t want to get paint on his shirt. He was adamant about the color he was going to use. It is Antibes ( pronounced “on-teeb”) Elijah pronounces it Antipuss.
The girls had to have a turn too.
You probably wonder what we are working on, don’t you? I think you will really like them.
I was trying so hard to do the ‘good mama’ thing and let them paint. I had to keep telling myself that including them and making memories is worth more than $37 a can!! Biting my tongue as paint is dripping from the can to the wood. As you can see, I couldn’t keep my hands off their work. Yes, my shirt is on inside out. Brian’s theory was that if I wore my paint shirts inside out and then when someone came to look at furniture I would just flip it around. Good idea? Yes, if you remember to switch it back. Which I didn’t. Now I have paint on both sides.
I finished two gorgeous and entirely different dressers with mirrors today. One was painted in a really cool two color distress and the other soft neutrals with some natural crackling and dark wax. Both have ridiculously roomy drawers. Their debut is May 4, 2012 at 1:00. See you there.
