Christmas is just coming too fast! I have been really feeling like Christmas decorating though ever since Janae and I went to a Christmas open house last night.
Buying Christmas presents isn't a problem for me as far as I am pretty good at knowing what people would want...where the problem comes in is having the money to buy all these gifts! So I have been painting hours every day in hopes of making some money for Christmas. It is fun to be able to make money doing something I love...so I thought I would share a few of my projects.
This dresser is not a huge difference in the before and after but it is done in a way that was requested by a customer in Annie Sloan Original White. She loves it!
This little table my Mother bought for a couple dollars at a garage sale and it turned out so cute I wanted to keep it! It sold within a couple hours.
This next little table sold within one minute of me putting it on Craigslist--the lady was delighted with it.
Another one I wanted to keep--the thing is the project I just did is always my favorite!
This table is so sweet. I think the lady that bought this is putting it in her entryway of her gorgeous home!
As you can see I paint everything in Annie Sloan original white--because that seems to sell really fast. We all know I love white too. But Janae gave me a couple chairs when she cleaned out her garage and I did add a bit of color to them---for me!!
I just love these chairs! I mixed some Emile with Old White for the purple color--I love purple! Both chairs are done now and I love them!
This year something really strange has been happening to me as far as what attracts me color wise... I have always really disliked red..but now I am really liking red as long as it isn't orangy-red. I loved the window display at Camas Antiques last night.
So I was itching to paint something red for the holidays...so I painted this small frame and put a Christmas card in it.
Baby steps! But I think this is more red than I have ever had in my house ;)
Oh and one last thing...look what I found at Goodwill!
It was a whooping $9.99--it had all it's crystals and everything but I replaced some of them with antique ones I had from a chandelier I am parting out and so it just adds to the appeal. Goodwill never lets me down!
I did a milk paint project I am loving--will share that soon.
I hope this finds everybody keeping warm! Thanks for visiting!
