All day long I have painted. . .
And, thought about Andy Griffith episodes.
I have chuckled to myself thinking about Barney writing tickets for jaywalking.
I am not sure who brought “distressed” furniture into vogue?
I AM sure who has kept it in vogue. . .
Every mother on the planet.
When I was a child, “distressed” was ruined.
It meant another project for my dad.
I am blessed to be the mother of 3 beautiful girls.
And, have the opportunity to decorate some beautiful rooms for them.
But, I often dream of how I would decorate a little boys room. . .
A lovely bed for another lovely friend.
This bed now proudly sits under custom art work hung by a clothesline. . .
Surrounded by all things pink. . .
Her new owner couldn’t be more pleased.
Which makes me so happy!
Yet, I am a bit disappointed with myself. . .
I painted this lovely little desk. . .
for a lovely little friend.
Emma White turned 6 yesterday.
She loves to play office.
This desk should come in handy.
I have discovered a new chalk paint.
It is available in a store in Nashville called Southern Honey.
(That is the name of the paint and the store.)
The store is so cute.
There are not as many colors as Annie Sloan, but it is much cheaper.
Only $22 a quart.
They have some great colors.
I bought a color called “Otis” knowing that something would come up for me to paint.
And, sure enough, a project surfaced.
