and it continues…..

I have the bug, the paint everything you see with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Bug…. It is a really serious disease.  (No I know it really isn't…… but it sure seems like it when I do not see the end in sight.)  I inherited this problem from my dear sweet mother God Rest Her Soul!  She was the queen of the paint brush.  If she painted it once she more than likely painted it two or three times.  I remember as a young teen she painted my bedroom outfit Antique Blue…. I LOVED IT!  I not only have this problem but my daughters seem to have the same affliction….  Of course ASCP wasn't around in my mother's day and she would have had a coronary with the price.  I will say the stuff goes farther than any paint I have ever seen!  just saying……  I miss my Mom, she always wanted to know what I was crafting!  Mom, I sure hope there is a window in Heaven and you can see me!!!!

OK, so here are some shots of the family room.  NOW I have to change out my drapes to gray, and paint the coffee table and end tables ASCP French Linen…..  So you see it just goes on and on!  My paint store is about 40 minutes away Fresh Vintage in Muscaatine, Iowa.

Inspiration fabric in gray, a clock already red ;)  Oh yes, yes I did paint my lamp bases, covered old shades in gray patterned fabric, and made runners for everything…. did I overdo it?  Be honest…..

The red is Emperor's Silk and Below you see the difference between just waxed on the left and on the right waxed with both soft and then dark wax….

The nobs are painted in french linen…..  Ta Daaaa the finished cabinet…...

Oh yeah, the sewing machine was running most of the day…. made some new pillow covers….

See those creamy white end tables?  As soon as I get to Muscatine those babies will be French Linen….  and so will the mantel…….. HELP…. ;)  A bunch of red tulips… tis the season.

So just in case you wondered what I did today…. There you have it!
