New projects......

All of a sudden I realized that time is moving fast.  Judy and I are getting ready for our trip to Vermont and we no sooner get home then it's time to get ready for Leola's Holiday Open House -- YIKES!!!!!  Didn't we just do that?  Anyway, I've been trying to finish a few things so I can leave town without worrying about everything that needs to be done at home.

I'm stripping the top on this dropleaf table but will paint the bottom.  It's such a pretty table but the finish was in bad condition.  The top will be fairly dark but the bottom I'm using the Anne Sloan chalk pain in the old white.  Stripping paint is not my favorite thing to do but it had to be done.

This wood box was a yellow color when it came home with me so decided to try the blue chalk paint on it.  A little of the yellow shows up and some of the wood.  I waxed it with clear first then the walnut wax and it turned out great.  It would make a great toy chest.

This was a little dark, occasional table that I purchased at my aunt's auction.  Again, it needed some work done on the finish so decided to just make it white.  I still have to wax & sand it but then it will go to Leola's.  Check out it's legs -- aren't they great?

This chair and early table were found at a garage sale last week.  For once, I didn't have to do a thing with either.  I'm having a hard time giving up the table so it may get switched out with another table and stays with me.

It's a beautiful day in the Ozarks so guess I'd better get to my painting.  Times awastein'!

Did you get your chalk paint someplace local ? If so , where ?
I really want to try it , But I don't want to pay shipping on top of the price . I'm cheap like that . lol

That white occasional table took my breath away! I wish I needed it!

Danavee always see it first! I was just thinking how I WANT the occasional table before it makes it to Leola's! How much are you asking for it?

Andrea - the table will be $62 & it is a great table. I'm finishing it today (hopefully) & I'll post a "finished" pic tonight. Have a good Fri. -- I'm off to garage sales.

How tall is the table? I'm alright with two different night stand tables, but I think I'd want them to be the same height.
