I’ve had the serious itch to paint lately. I think I’ve had too much time away from my brushes. Or maybe it’s the “no lifting anything over 5 lbs” that makes me feel even more rebellious. Whatever the reason, I spent the other day painting a few new projects.
I picked up this wooden rocking horse several months ago. I love old rocking horses because they remind me of my Dad. Every time I see one, my heart melts a little. I gave this rocking horse a coat of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint followed by a light sanding and finished with dark paste wax.
At first, I was thinking about taking it to the booth. But as soon as I finished it, I knew it had found a home in my office.
I also painted this tool bench using the same color milk paint.
I loved the way it turned out with all that chippy goodness.
I brought it to the booth this past weekend. It was a hard one to let go. It’s totally my farmhouse cottage style.
Late last week, I bought this dresser in a panic. I could tell from daily sales emails my booth was starting to look pretty sparse. Sometimes, I go out shopping and come home empty handed. I had no idea if I was going to be able to find any furniture but I knew I needed something pretty quickly. I headed to this secret spot I call The Warehouse.
Luckily, this dresser was waiting on me. I was able to transform it with a few coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. We delivered it to The Pickers Market this past weekend as well.
I still have a table, china hutch, tall dresser and cabinet all waiting to be painted in the garage. It’s going to be a busy few days but I am so excited to be painting again!
