  2. Love your blog! I know what you mean about living in a neighborhood, even though it is on lovely Lookout Mountain! We dream of retiring to the back of the mountain in a farmhouse-style home on a little lake. I went to MTSU and my 3 brothers and their families still live there-. Can’t wait to look at all your ideas!

  3. Just subscribed to you blog so I can get inspired to good works in my home:) love the painted furniture look too.

  4. Isn’t it grand to change the look of furniture with paint? Loved looking at your projects.

  5. I love painting furniture and recycling anything that I can. If it can be painted, I will paint it. I have painted a lot with chalk paint, but have never used the milk paint. A long time ago, I heard that milk paint was highly poisonous; is this true? Do you also wax when painting with milk paint? Which do you like to do best or which gives better results? What determines which paint you use on a piece of furniture?

  9. I love the Sage green on the motel chairs! I have 2 clam shell motel chairs, a small round side table, and a vintage porch bench/glider. I’m looking for color suggestions. I love red, vintage greens, and vintage teals/aquas. My ranch style 1950’s home has wide red siding, which can be seen in the backyard. the wrought iron patio tables and chairs are black with red cloth umbrellas. i’m struggling with which colors to paint the chairs, table, and porch glider. HELP!

  11. I love your blog! I can understand your feelings of living within a neighbourhood even though it’s situated on the beautiful Lookout Mountain! We are imagining getting away from the mountain and living in a farmhouse house on a small lake. I attended MTSU as did my 3 brothers as well as their families reside there. I’m excited to see your thoughts!
