So let me just catch you up. I was already low on furniture for the booth when January started. Normally people aren’t buying a lot of furniture in January since most people have spent a good amount of money on Christmas presents. But this month the most awesome thing has happened.
Last Friday, my Mom and I set out for the quaint little town of Mount Dora. If you’ve never been, honestly, it should be on the list of Florida’s hidden treasures. They have amazing restaurants, Lake Dora, lots of antique shops and Renninger’s.
I was at the Renninger’s Extravaganza with my Mom when I found out I had a big hole in my booth after one of the dressers had sold. No worries, I had another dresser in my garage waiting to be painted. For this dresser makeover, I used two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Country Grey and followed with clear furniture paste wax. All the details were highlighted using Annie Sloan Old White.
Have you guys ever used adhesive paper on a piece of furniture before? I hadn’t tried it for anything other than lining shelves until the other day. This little bookcase has been with me forever. I used 4 rolls of adhesive paper from The Dollar Tree.
After we moved the bakers rack to create an indoor coffee station, it left the entire area totally bare. I hung up a vintage chalkboard, gave a mini makeover to the Suwannee Sugar Cane Farm sign and the chair at the desk in the kitchen. In one afternoon I was able to complete 3 quick decorative updates in the kitchen and the only thing it cost me was my time.
It’s been rainy and cold in Florida most of the week. I’m getting back to basics in the kitchen making banana bread with chocolate chips. This easy recipe is perfect for rushed mornings or relaxing afternoons.
I’m excited to finally be sharing a piece of painted furniture with you. I painted this console table before Christmas. It seems like a whirlwind now but at the time I couldn’t believe 4 pieces of furniture sold between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg.
