furniture frenzy AND a giveaway!

Exciting news for Alice and Jay! We are having our very first giveaway with the one and only Miss Mustard Seed! We will be giving away this pair of lamps and shades. They are made of vintage french iron gate pieces and are a great pale blue color. They stand 35" high and would look lovely in YOUR home, just visit Miss Mustard Seed for the details! I hope you win!
In the meantime.... we have been on a furniture frenzy this week. We have painted and waxed over 25 pieces of furniture for our open house next weekend.

We painted most of our goodies in Paris Grey before we decided we needed a change. We tried Aubusson Blue on this table with a dark wax.
These little jewels are a true testament to chalk paint. They started out slick and shiny and with just one coat of Greek Blue...
They were transformed. A coat of wax and then we distressed them. There is quite a difference in the before and after with dark wax.
Next, some more slick and shiny tables but I thought they had a great shape.

One coat of Paris Grey and a dark wax makes look so much better!

Ok, I will forewarn you, if you are a furniture purist then turn away now. We found this fabulous set with china cabinet, buffet, table, and 6 chairs.
We have painted the set in Paris Grey and a dark wax.
The details on this set just tickle my tummy. Look at those legs!

I haven't decided if I am going to upholster the chairs in a french ticking or antique grain sacks. I'll show you the entire set when we finish. All of these goodies and so many more will be available next Friday night at our Witches Night Out. We have so many treats (and tricks in store). It is going to be an evening of fun and frolic for children of ALL ages.
