It has been good to s-l-o-w-l-y get back in the saddle with painting since the sale. Last year I jumped in and paid for it. This year, surprise, surprise, I sort of did the same thing I promise I will learn eventually.
I have done a ton of ‘shopping’ and that has been fun. But it is the painting and creating that I LOVE.
Here are some of the things I have been working on.
Here is the before of an adorable primitive cabinet. Kind of cool and chippy as it is, but I had a plan . . .
Here is the after. I LOVE it!!!! I painted cream underneath the primer red, and distressed it and used dark wax. If this piece was not a custom order I seriously would keep it. I wonder if they will change their mind.
Kind of a funny picture, isn’t it? It is a super cute waterfall vanity that has a really cool mirror. I will show you the after pictures when I am done. I have it distressed and dark waxed. It is looking awesome. I think Zoe will love it. She is a sweet little girl whose mommy bought it for her at my sale.
I have been painting outside all this week, it has been beautiful, hasn’t it? The paint dries even faster, which seems impossible. I basically am on the second coat as soon as I finish the first. Then, I am able to wax it pretty much when I am done with the second coat.
I’m not doing a thing to this really cool, super chippy chair that is reportedly from the 1800s.
I haven’t figured out what to do with this little beauty yet. I love some of the original floral motifs. I am working on figuring out a way to refresh it without losing its charm. I will keep you posted.
This beauty is a custom color that I will call ‘aqua’. I am not sure she if for sale yet, as I have been working on this color and this is pert near perfect! I just had to show you, I am a proud mama.
Tomorrow I am finishing up a gorgeous antique, shabby chic, old white buffet. It is for a sweet woman’s wedding. I really think these antique buffets were created to be painted white and all shabby! I am sure that irritates the wood purists, but I think I am right on this.
Also, two antique small cabinets are on the painting block. What are you up to?
Have a wonderful weekend!
