and....ta da!!!!! I did it!!!!!
I put it in the shop and now it is waiting for someone to fall in LOVE!!!! and take it home!!!!

new chalk paint...

I just tried the Americana Chalky paint, I love it!
redid this farmhouse table and vintage Windsor chairs...




the chairs and legs are done in Carbon, I love how it is a true black!
the top was sanded and stained...
I know you can get this chalk paint at Micheal's, Home Depot and online at Walmart

I have had some questions on the paint....it comes in a 8 ounce sample and in a 16 ounce can
the 16 oz is $15.95, but this paint is thicker and richer, so it goes so much further...
and I like having a larger color choice
I used a sample size and did a vintage desk, front and back with it...
I will share that this week

Hello Stranger!

Wow, it has been along time since I was on my blog!!!!
now that I am a working gal!!!
our shop is doing wonderful and it is really keeping me busy, lots of creating....which I love!!!
just wish there were more hours in the day!
here is a project I did at Christmas time, I needed something pretty to display jewelry on...



I had this foam dress form...


I like foam because you can pin items on her...
so I went to all my vintage lace and doilies and started cutting and gluing...




an vintage slip for the bottom







pinned on some pretty feather wings..



and added my jewelry!
