CHALK PAINT

September 18, 2015

Hi!

Getting back after a break over the summer ~ hard to believe that another summer is behind us.  I am noticing some of the trees are starting to change color with some of them even dropping their leaves ...... my favorite season of the year!  Here's to those hot humid days behind us ~ welcome fall.




Well, the kids are back at school, Katryna in her senior year in college and Dinesh in his senior year in high school ~ not quite sure where the time has gone.  Looking forward to an exciting senior year ~ a busy year ahead of us with two graduations in May next year.  We have the making of the senior float in our garage for Homecoming ~ the theme this year is Harry Potter.  .










Sadly, this will be our last year for making the float at home .... kind of a very sad and hollow feeling. I am trying not to focus or think about it too much, but to just enjoy the ride with Dinesh and his friends before they start the next chapter in their lives.

So, with all the time I am going to have on my hands in about a year, I thought I will go back to my first love ~ painting and distressing furniture.  Let me tell you, I love painting with Annie Sloan chalk paint ~ it is not too watery or too thick, but almost creamy like and goes on so very smoothly ~ love the paint.  I was finally able to finish two little end tables, and re-purposed an old window from the stock of windows I got from a friend in the spring.












So, this is what I have been working on ~ the next project is a table using an old wrought iron sewing machine base.  


Have a great weekend.   Until next time ......................
