~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...

The table looks great. I paint all the time--in the house. I love to paint! I love this color too--for me it ties with pink :) Of course I also have a thing for dusty purple right now too :)

OH SO beautiful:) I am wanting to use that color to make a Spring update in my house! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

I'm not a fan of pink so I love the blue table. I'll have to try that chalk paint.

Beautiful job on the table. I plan to try chalk paint this Spring. For Christmas a couple of years ago, I received a high end Canon camera. You will love it, they take great pics. There's so much to learn, I plan to take a class to really learn more about it. Have a blessed week.

Good morning Rebecca,
You are so lucky to be able to get out and paint!! We are enjoying a sunny but cold -40 with the wind chill morning!
I love the blue table; it is soft and pretty.
It does take a while to get back to normal when you have a heavy year. Just keep doing things that lift you up and before you know it you will be soaring through the blue skies again!
Much love and warm hugs from Laura in cold and sunny Ontario Canada.
p.s. I am patiently awaiting your kitchen reveal.

I can't handle deep blues, but this is soft and nice. Can't wait for the ground to dry up to plant my climbing roses, then I can gather them this summer..
while I may

I know you are a busy, busy lady and am thrilled for your success BUT we out here in blog land would love to know how the kitchen redo is coming along. I am so anxious to see the end result.

I plan on updating you on our kitchen remodel this summer. It's been a long, long, LONG ONE MAN SHOW project and we are glad it is almost done.

Not everything came out as planned or dreamed, but we are happy and overjoyed with the ending results. A few things to tweak and then the reveal. I promise...when it's ready I'll share.

Miss you all. Will catch up soon!
