I know I have been missing in action for a
Then it was Christmas and the time just seemed to fly by. Although I was not idle those weeks. We painted almost all the furniture we brought back from our trip and you will be seeing those pieces in the near future.
Mean while here is one I finished a while back.
I got a shipment of Annie Sloans Paint. This one has Paris Grey in it. I found a bookcase at the thrift store that I thought would be a good item to try the Paris Grey on. I unfortunately don’t have a before picture. I am always so eager to start a project I completely forget to take picture. Another
Her is the after of my bookcase.
Did I mention my camera sucks….. I am beginning to believe all of Annie Sloans paints have a blue base. All of my projects seem to come out looking rather blue…( I have since found some new colors that are really nice and do not have a blue cast to them.... guess it just takes some trial and error.
This piece again was rather blue so I added some dark wax over it. Then distressed it as well. Its a rather beachy look and does. not. sell. where I am located in Atlanta…hmm no one wants the blue grey yet. Although I am told by my local Antique Mall that it sells quite well there.
I will be working on the camera issue for future posts, that does not mean that I will remeber to jump up and take those before pictures though. They should make a camera that screams at me before I start a project "you forgot to use ME!!". They have not developed a camera like that, although it probably isn’t that far off.. I mean Siri does talk to me, perhaps I could convince her to keep an eye on me. Probably not, we are in a love hate relationship right now..;)
Have a Great week!
