Ice Ice Baby

Whoa…going way back now but it is probably better I leave that alone.

I just finished up this sa-weet piece and it turned out a nice icey blue color. Ohhhh…I so love it!

Not so beautiful but just as I found her…

Jon had to work his magic fixing the drawers before I could take my hand at it. I applied primer and next came a lovely shade of Bayou Blue. Distressed and glazed with a mix of glaze and an oops Benjamin Moore color which I would describe as a pale baby blue.
When I began distressing somehow I only had 1 kiddo at home with me…angels singing…HALLELUJAH! Naaaah…love those babies but I also love getting to have one on one time with them because I get to see the real little person without all the¬†fussing and fighting that comes with siblings. So I had my Sam boy and he wanted to help me out sanding. He worked his little arms silly and was really good might I add. We got to the last drawer and he suggests we wait on that one till tomorrow. I tell him no let’s get it done…”well, alright…it’s just my muscles are so uncomfortable.”
Next, I painted the hardware silver metallic and glazed with the same mixture I used before. I added pink paper to the drawer insides. Finally, a good ol’ waxin’ and she is D.O.N.E.
Drum roll purdy please…
The flower was a happy accident! Got to love those!

And on that note…I am outta here. See you tomorrow with an Oh So Glamerous Girlified birthday party with all the fun details.

Duo of blue

Well…actually a grey¬†blue to be more precise but “duo of grey blue” just didn’t seem as catchy. This lovely pair was more I salvaged from Jon’s old house. It is funny to me because I remember them in his place when we were dating 100 years ago. One still had one of those sticky round room perfume things. I have no idea what you call them?? When I flipped the table over and saw it stuck to the underneath he remembered putting it there…again 100 years ago. I am sure he did that to impress me with his good smelling abode. I am going with that anyway. Regardless, I pried that sucker off pronto.

I sanded my pretty little arms silly getting them ready taking the tops down to the wood. I chose an oops paint that was really a tinted primer I had picked up at Sherwin Williams. Next, I heavily distressed them with the help of my paint scraper and a 60 grit sanding block. Glazed with a dark walnut and clear glaze mixture and used Danish Oil in Dark Walnut to finish off the top. The final dressing came with some new hardware from the Hob Lob and then I called it a day or a week…whatever…finito!

Counting down the days till I can feel the sand between my toes. I can almost smell the ocean air now. Did I mention school is almost over?? Happy Dance! Looking forward to snugglin’ in with my babes in the mornings.
Thanks so much for your comments! I looooove them!

A little bit of whimsy

I inherited this fun little table from a stash my hubby’s family had stored. I snagged a few things that day. We loaded up the van and I was a happy girl.

This was pretty damaged with water rings and years of wear and tear.

I decided to take this unique little table and go a whole different direction. While I do love doing “grown up” furniture I have to explore the kid in me occasionally. Here is what my inner kid came up with…

I used Glidden primer and paint in one in Walnut Bark. Then I raided my stash to create the owl painting and finished it off with a couple coats of wipe on poly for those messy little fingers.

Thanks for your comments! They always mean so much to me!
