lovin' chalk paint...

but...who isn't?
I love that you don't have to prime or sand...but I really love how fast it dries...

I found these lazy susans and decided to paint them...and add some French graphics...
(there is sooooo much inspiration out in blog world, where you get great ideas...thanks!)

I then went to the fabulous Graphic's Fairy ...
I printed it out and then used tracing paper with a dull pencil and traced it,
I then flipped it over and used a spoon to burnish it onto the wood,
I then went over it with a small paint brush using burnt umber...

sanded it and sealed it with wax...
I am painting everything!

  9. who knew a lazy susan could look so good?! Love how this project turned out... I'm also a milk paint fan for all the same reasons! :)

  10. Wow, I love this! It turned out wonderfully :) Thanks for sharing. Thank you too for the birthday wishes for my boys :)

  11. Love what you did to the lazy susans! I keep seeing this chalk paint I keep seeing on blog land! I love the graphics, too.
    Your blog is so cute, love the vintage white :)
    Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog!

  12. Hello sweetie! This is simply gorgeous! Love the frenchy graphics, you did good!

  13. It turned out great. I always enjoy what a blogger does with paint. I feel sorry for people who have not discovered what paint can do to change something. We who paint do not have to say no to something just because we do not like the color. Oh and as for the cart, I see a cute simple white slip on the inside with ruffles at the top of course.
