Hey there! Hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend.
We hosted a cookout/pool party on Sunday, so we were scrambling to get our backyard in shape. We did weeding and planting and cleaning and painting and outdoor furniture shopping. I told my husband that we should plan a party every weekend, so we are forced to get house projects done :) I'll share photos of the completed backyard soon.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen pics of some furniture I painted recently. I have been dying to use Annie Sloan chalk paint in "Duck Egg Blue" for like, forever. Then one day I was looking at this table in my basement.
And I thought, "Wow. That table is really dusty."
Then I thought, "Wow. That table is really nicked up. Maybe I should freshen him up and paint him duck egg blue."
I'm a deep thinker.
So, I broke out my nasty drop cloth and started painting.
It was love at first sight. I wanted to paint my entire house duck egg blue. Oh wait… most of it is :)
Here's my little table looking much happier in his new coat of paint.
Now, I was so in love with duck egg blue that I couldn't stop with just one little table. I looked around for another piece to paint, and spied my next victim.
This little old dresser from Pier 1 sits in our sunroom and holds the kids' art supplies. Using "old white" and "duck egg," I gave him a more beachy, cottage-y look.
There was no method to my madness. I just slapped paint here and there, until it had a weathered look.
I don't know why it took me so long to use this paint color. I love it so.
Since I didn't post yesterday, I would just like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all the men and women who have sacrificed for our freedom.
