postheadericon Something different

Thought I would do something just a bit different on this set of 3 little tables I picked up for cheap on Craigslist.  Don't you LOVE Craigslist? 

This is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - Provence, Scandinavian Pink and Arles over Graphite with Graphite tops and self stick stencil from Caromal Colours. Not sure these are my style, but that is something that is so cool about the chalk paint - if I don't like it I can go right back over the top of it again, wax and all! What do you think?  You like them or not?   Don't worry - you won't hurt my feelings....I just wanted some feedback.  I look at them and like them, and then I take another look and not so much.  I can't decide!

And remember that sweet little table I painted in Duck Egg Blue with gold gilding....well I decided it was too much bling for my taste.  I went over the gilding with Old White, wiped it back - NO SANDING, and applied more dark wax on it.  Now I like it better!

I've had a lot of people asking about my workshop schedule. Tomorrow I will post the summer schedule.  But for tonight - it is sleep that is beckoning me.  

Keep painting outside the lines and remember to Moosh and Smoosh!

Hi Vicki,
I do like the three little table very much. I wonder how they would look with a white top. The colors are so pretty!.
I need to place a order for paint. I really want to paint my kitchen table and buffet.
Have a sweet day and big hugs, Elizabeth
