What do you do with

a scant 1/4 ” of the gloppiest chalk paint you have ever seen?  Well, it is my all time favorite color so I thinned it and painted this little table.  Turned out to be just enough.  Thank goodness there is a similar color in our new American Paint Company line!!

This color makes my heart happy!

I have a feeling a new all time favorite color is about to happen for me – love you, American Paint Company  Beach Glass!!!

Not Your Grandma’s Avocado Green French Provincial Dresser!

Take a typical lovely HUGE French Provincial 9 drawer dresser and paint it this fabulous Olive color and then glaze it in black before waxing and you end up with this!!!

Another of my year-long storage pieces, this one has FINALLY hit the store.  It had (once upon a time –  long, long ago) gorgeous trim in numerous places but it was so fragile it could only be removed, not repaired.  After much gluing, sanding and painting – not to mention waxing – here she is in all her glory with a little stenciling around the cabinet door pulls to add a bit of charm.
