Redo Paradise!

I have soo many projects that we have done in a hurry.
Most are camera phone pics ,but I always love a good before and after.
Here is a smorgasbord of them.


I painted this nightstand with Annie Sloan chalk paint in chateau grey and
then the second coat in DIY chalkpaint with a Benjamin Moore color called "Teal Ocean".
I had to get new knobs for the top drawer (hobby lobby)
 and spray painted the handles in oil rubbed bronze.



I LOVED how this chair turned out.  It was very bright and colorful, but not my style.
Lola had to pose it up for me.  I painted it in Annie Sloan "graphite" and and then in a DIY chalk paint called
"turquoise gem"  it was from home depot.  I ended up just dry brushing on the turquoise.  I didn't want the neon orange and green to show through when i distressed.  I modge podged on a piece of
"amy butler" fabric on the back.


I love the rich colors of this desk.  It was one of those of accidentals paint combos.
I had intended on the shell being white, and the drawers being their natural wood color.  
I had all of the drawers scattered in our workshop at Absolute Vintage Boutique. 
and one of them accidentally got painted by Em's hubby 
while he was put to work painting another cabinet.  It looked cool, so I went with it and painted the rest
in the same color.  It was a DIY chalk paint color.  I cant remember the name of the color.  The top was really rough and had lost its veneer, so i sanded and then painted in a chocolate brown DIY Chalk paint.



Here is a sneak peak of the colors I have planned for my next project!
