Thank you SO MUCH to everyone for the well wishes while I was down for the count this week with stomach flu. There is nothing like being THAT sick, where you cannot even get out of bed to make you so grateful for good health when you have it! I am feeling better, not 100%, but getting there!
In the meantime, are you all wanting to know who won the amazing ChalkPro Products $125 brush giveaway???????
Selena Willis Flynn come on down!!!!
Lucky Selena! If you didn’t win, you really should try the ChalkPro brushes anyhow. They are the absolute best brushes I have used and I can’t wait to buy some more. Just click on their advertisement in my sidebar!
I had my mom and step father visiting with me last week, then I got sick, so I haven’t finished too many BIG projects, but I am so inspired by what you shared with me. Here are some of my favorites:
I love unique table bases, and it has never occurred to me use an old sewing machine base! I love what Virginia from Artsy VaVa did with this project. She used the cool sewing table base, put a new piece of wood on the top, then used an old map (or made it look really old, which she shares in her post) to decorate the top. This is definitely a project I want to try out.
Swoon alert!! This Desk from Claudia at Redone to be Reloved is a stunner. She found the desk on a Facebook furniture sales sight and swooped in fast. Claudia used a combination of ASCP Aubusson Blue and CeCe Caldwell’s Emerald Green. She finished the details with a Martha Stewart metallic and CeCe Caldwell’s Clear Wax. Check out the new sanding system Claudia is using too, I am so intrigued!
I have a thing for little tables and chair sets, and especially when they are so cute like this little table and red chairs from Cassie at Primitive and Proper. Cassie has several new projects every week, and they are always inspiring. If anyone can paint, that girl can! (get it, “Paint”, “Can”……..)
These are two of the loveliest little twins I have seen, (and I have twins, but I wouldn’t describe them as lovely on certain days…..). From The Painted Drawer, she transformed these solid, but dated cabinets into an updated, current look.
This is one of the most unique looking cabinets from Create Inspire. A TON of work and love went into this project, peeling off the cracked veneer on the top, cleaning up the wood, getting the sheet music just right, special hardware ordered in from England. But wow! The results are gorgeous. What a fun project. (I love the photo bomb of the little boy who snuck in the “after” picture too).
And finally, this Bombay chest is a perfect example of how gorgeous layering CeCe Caldwell’s paints can be. There is a fantastic tutorial to go with this piece too from my friends Rhea and Hugh and Saltaire Restoration. You must go read the whole post to see how this is done.
