New Pieces and New Paint

This week has been sheer insanity! I've been so busy with life. Kindergarten prep activities, painting classes and getting ready for the wine walk has left me no time to blog. And I have sooooo much to write about. I didn't even have time to do my Furniture Friday post. So, better late than never, right?

I managed to squeeze in enough time to refinish two pieces for this week. The first is that simple dresser on the left and the armoire on the right I finished at the wine walk during my first live painting demonstration.

The Dresser:

The weird hardware on the dresser left three holes where each knob went so I had to fill in the extra holes. I painted the whole piece in ASCP Cream.

Then, I free handed a beautiful love song on all of the drawers in French. It is versus 1-4 from the Song of Songs (along with a number of typos and duplicate words).

"Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth, for your love is more delightful than wine.

"Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the maidens love you! Take me away with you—let us hurry! Let the king bring me into his chambers.

We rejoice and delight in you; we will praise your love more than wine.

How right they are to adore you!"

The armoire is painted in ASCP Duck Egg Blue with a dark wax finish.

I took out the wood panel inserts so that the insets on the doors were flat and crinkled up vintage sheet music to decopauge the front.

New hardware.

So, besides the two pieces of furniture, I'm fully stocked with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and am working to put together a calendar of events. More to come on that along with our new "Painting Passports!" So, stay tuned!

  6. This settles it. I have to get some ASCP! This project would be perfect for our new linky party featuring "Transformations" called Repurpose-Remodel-Reveal, I know our readers would love to see it too! (It starts Friday, March 2nd 2012 at 7:00 am MST and reoccures every 1st and 3rd Friday)
