~PAINTED TURQUOISE TABLE...CHALK PAINT FUN!!!~

~PAINTED TURQUOISE TABLE~

The weather was sooo nice in Oklahoma today I actually did some work outside in our backyard.  So...here it is, barely the middle of February, and I'm already wanting Spring to hurry up and get here.
~FRESHLY PAINTED w/CHALK PAINT~

Now...I'm not too much of a blue person.  But, I've grown to love it a wee bit more over the past couple years because it's so crazy popular!  Think it will surpass pink?  (Not for me!)
~HALFWAY DONE...ALWAYS PAINT UNDERNEATH SIDE FIRST~

 Anyway...thought I'd pop in today and show you the photos of a table I purchased yesterday at a local thrift.  I was already starting to paint it when I remembered to snap some pictures...that's what happens when you get out of practice with blogging.
~ORIGINAL PAINT...SHINY BLACK AND GREY-BLUE~

I used to have my camera in my hands all the time.  Now I use my phone as I'm trying to learn all I can about my new Cannon Camera before I actually take any pictures to SHOW!
~CLOSE-UP OF THE SHINY BLACK PAINT~

So...if you're thinking about painting something in the near future then try chalk paint...I'm always happy with the outcome!

Hope you all are doing fabuloso!  Little by little my life is getting back to normal after a pretty tough year!

Love to you...

~TO MARKET TO MARKET...BUT NO FAT PIG~

 I did something this weekend I haven't done in years!  My Mr. AGPMan and I attended the Dallas WHOLESALE Market in Dallas, Texas.  We had a wonderful time and came home with lots of orders placed, fabulous cash/carry items, great catalogs and we met some incredible artisans!
My most favorite part of MARKET was visiting the Temporary Spaces/Booths held in Market Hall.  Lots of amazing furniture, both antique, vintage and reproduction.  All yummy!

Came home with fresh ideas as visiting Market Showrooms always inspire.  Finished reworking and revamping this lovely old chest this morning.  Isn't it charming?  Didn't have to do much as it was already painted.  Just needed some distressing!
 Love the glass knobs.  Toooo sweet!

Would love to have your take on going to the Wholesale Markets.  Have you ever been?  Do you love going?  P. Allen Smith (from HGTV Home/Gardening Show) was there this weekend and I thought he was a wonderful speaker and so talented!

More to share soon...

Love to you >>~~~<3 br="">
