We are all so busy in life trying to be what everyone else wants.... I just want to be ME.

It's been awhile...
Ok, so it's been a year. Maybe over a year. A lot that has happened, but today I just wanted to show y'all a project I recently completed. I'm doing more of what makes ME happy, and I'm loving it. I've been redoing furniture. I've done a few so far, and this one just made me happy. I found her at GoodWill and gave her a face lift. I've been wanting to buy some Annie Sloan chalk paints, but they are pretty expensive, so I've been using American Decor and their waxes. On this project, I used American Decor Everlast chalk paint, and I was able to buy 4oz samples of Annie Sloan clear and dark waxes so I used those to finish the piece. I also sanded down the top and re stained it in Kona and completed it with Polycrylic on the top. I love it. I can't decide if I can find somewhere to put her, or if I'm just going to sell her. I need to purchase a compressor and some nail guns, so who knows.
Anyway, I'll be back later with an "update" post, but until then, here she is!
