A Make Over

Happy New Year!
I do hope that everyone had a
great weekend!  
I got almost all of the Christmas
decorations packed away today, for 
another year.  It seems unreal that we 
are in the year 2011, already!

I thought I would show you all the
chair that I painted awhile back.
Here it is before....

I love the shape of this chair, but I 
am not into white, chippy paint, 
so I painted it black and I didn't 
like the shine on it, so I dry brushed
the red, from the hutch on it...

 I distressed it a little and I like it
much better.  How about you?

I have a bread box, that I painted 
black and distressed, that I will sell,
if anyone is interested....I will post 
it, soon....You can e-mail me about 
it, if you would like.

I am going to get to painting and 
sewing, very soon and I will be 
starting  up a selling blog, so be 
watching for that, in the future.
I will also be selling things that I 
no longer want, and things I  have
made over.

I am on a mission to get rid of things,
 and what better way to get rid of it, 
than to sell it to my prim friends?

Until next time, my friends...
