Chalk Painted Small Table

I'm at it again.  This is a beautiful small table.  It was antique green to begin with.  I sanded down to distress even more and added Duck Egg Chalk Paint, distressed and waxed.  It is really beautiful.  Looks ever better in person!

Painted End Table

Still using the Duck Egg Chalk Paint.  Refinished with end table.  It is for sale at my booth in Full Circle Antiques in Beeville.

Doing some furniture refinishing or rather Chalk Painting and distressing.  My first two attempts.

Canton Treasures

Totally enjoyed a trip to Canton with a wonderful friend.  Was away from home for 5 beautiful days.  We stayed at my husband's relatives and I got to see several of them.  In fact, 7 of the girls joined us for Saturday shopping.  Thank goodness I took my Cargo trailer.  It was filled with lots of treasures along with the back of my truck.  Have lots of ideas and plans to paint, paint, paint.  Hope I will make the time to get them done.

My biggest bargain as a vanity, bench, dresser and bed frame for $150.  Yes, for the whole set.  Can't wait to get my paintbrush on this find..
I purchased 2 more vanities, another dresser, 4 stools, 4 end tables, 6 child's step stools, a dry sink, headboard and footboard to make me a beautiful bench, wooden ladder, coal bucket, watering can, 2 washboards (planning to use as legs to a table), child's rocking chair, doll high chai, gourds and 3 cute small tables.

This should keep me busy for a long while!!!!
Look for before and after pictgures to follow!!!
