Latest Project

If I show this to you
I will have to finish it.
Solid oak coffee table ... cost: $20.
... projects are more fun with my helper...
I'm thinking Chalk Paint in a pale grey
and then shabbying it up a bit.
What do you think?
I am open to all fabulous suggestions!
P.S.  I've added a link to the post below
if you'd like to see the stages of
my watercolor painting of
Carson the Afghan Hound.

YES! YES!!! It is going to look amazing in gray and then with your crystal candelabra sitting on top,with GRAY CANDLES for the upcoming season!!!!

I think that young fella is having fun doing that sanding business!

And since you brought it up yourself, yes, we'll be watching for the finished project!

Enjoy the journey.......

Oh, Violet it's perfect! What a great shape and what a bargain!! Anita has a good idea about the gray candles. I am painting furniture, too, Did an old cupboard on Monday. Do you have your chalk paint yet? Have you used it yet? I have ASCP on order and have watched some videos on using the wax, but I'm a little scared. I will be checking in to see how you're coming along! [[And who's that cutie-patootie helper?]
