Thankful

Posted on

black10 This is the most wonderful time of the year.  Our Thanksgiving week was filled with happy thankful moments.  We enjoyed hosting Kevin's family this year (28 people - lots of kids!)  I enjoy dreaming up different ways to decorate every year and it helps me get through the cleaning!  I tell myself that if I complete all my chores I can decorate/paint/create something.   This year I found a beautiful frame in my attic waiting for a purpose.  Kevin cut a piece of plywood for me and I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk paint.  A quick easy chalkboard. [gallery type="rectangular" link="none" size="medium" ids="6882,6880"] While the paint was out I added this buffet to my painting list.  The buffet was my grandmothers and I wanted to bring it upstairs to use it for my dishes and flatware.

black1 The paint is amazing.  I know, I know, I've said it before.  No priming and sanding - just brush it on and its perfection.  I let the stain show through because I was going for the worn look.  I'm happy with the outcome! [gallery type="rectangular" size="large" ids="6884,6883"] black9

    Wow! I like how you painted over the hardware and it still looks awesome. How’s that working out?

    Thanks so much for the tip. I have fallen in love with painting furniture and haven’t used chalk paint yet. I’m so dorkily excited about it!
