Sorry that it’s been forever since I posted a project! Sheesh! I’ve had a bazillion (my go-to exaggeration number. Do you have one?) things going but haven’t been able to get anything completed and pictured and blogged about for SO long. My apologies. BUT the silver-lining to that cloud is that I have a bazillion things just about ready to show you, so you’re going to be like “Ann Marie! Quit spamming my blog reader, why don’t ya!” And I will laugh maniacally and wring my hands with fiendish delight. :)
Some old friends of mine (not that they are old, I’ve just known them a long time) were moving and got a hold of me last week to see if I wanted a few things that they were getting rid of in the move. Terri reads the blog and knows I can’t turn down free. (Hi Terri!) She gave me a set of 4 Ethan Allen Maple Braceback Chairs that I’m planning on making a dining set of with a round pedestal table I have. That project will be for another day, but she also gave me an oak cheval dressing mirror. Here’s the very uninspiring before (after I had begun prep-work, of course…)
I decided to paint it a soft off-white and distress to shabby chic perfection.
I hand-painted this project, but I also have my new HVLP paint sprayer up and running! I’m seriously in love. It’s been a long search for this
picky informed buyer, and I couldn’t be happier with it’s first performance. I’ll show you later today how the armoire for my husband turned out. Two posts in one day!! I know!! :)
In other quite exciting news, we’re going to kick off a REALLY BIG giveaway very soon, so hold onto your seats!! I’m so excited to tell you about it!!
