Wow this weather has been crazy! I even broke out my rain boots!
Since the rain was coming I decided to try and finish up some of the projects that I had sitting under a tarp outside, yes I store some of my treasures under a tarp outside…as Yvette would say it’s very “Sanford & Son” but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!
One of the goodies was a vintage vanity that I named Annabelle. Basically I pulled out the large spray painter in an effort to knock out a bunch of projects BUT since I’ve become so used to Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (ASCP) I just wasn’t feeling it so now I’m doing all the pieces by hand with ASCP. Annabelle was really not looking good; to point where I almost gave up on her and dropped her off at the Goodwill for someone else to play with…then one night this week I started working on a couple other things and then put a coat of ASCP in Country Grey on the top of her and then the next thing I knew I was trying Aubusson blue on her base and then she was done! I love the soft colors but I really like using colors that is you boyfriends and husbands can still appreciate as well. I think this is why I use Graphite a lot.
Here is Annabelle….
Annabelle is now listed on our Stylish Patina Etsy Shop if you want to visit her or share her with friends.
