The End Of Summer

This long holiday weekend has been a very busy one. I have time to relax, kickback and paint. My husband and I had a very lovely dinner out on Saturday we spent time with family on Sunday and as for Monday I've been restyling in the garage. I can't believe it's time to go back to work already. I've completed the nesting tables and I'm happy with the end result, hopefully I will find a buyer. I used Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint I used a trio of colors old white, duck egg blue and aubusson blue.





On Saturday I spotted a tag sale, so of course I had to pop in and have a look. I walked away with this great chair I love the legs on it! Please tell me that your garage looks like this.
My dining room set restyle is coming along quite nicely. There have been a few trials and tribulations with it but I feel that I'm  at the home stretch now.  Here is a peek at the table.



Tomorrow evening will be my second upholstery class and it's going very well here is the chair that will be a receiving a whole new glamorous look. I promise you won't recognize the chair when it's completed.


Until next time..........

  6. Wow, you've been busy! Love the colors on the nesting tables. Also love the chair. (Our garage looks MUCH worse!) And I think my dining room table is a lot like yours! (It's an antique from my husband's family.) SO glad you had a nice weekend.

  12. Had a chance to look around your place today and Love it:) I am now following. You sure are a go getter with the paint. I noticed you sell your items on CL instead of in a shop, great idea with no overhead. I have some ASCP waiting to be used through my sprayer but it is to windy here right now. Can't wait to see what you do next:)
    Have a great night

  16. I love the nesting tables, Vicki! Please share your secret for using all the different colors. I ordered ASCP in Provence, but I'm too scared to open the lid. Seriously! I am so impressed with all the furniture painting that has been done in the bloggy world but I'm too scared to take the plunge myself. I know.... it's only paint, right? Maybe I need to start on something small, like your nesting tables! Love them :D
