This Ol' House Thursday...STILL Working On The Living Room

I am STILL working on lightening up our living room...I posted my curtain makeover here  .  It is definitely a work in progress...lots to do and not a lot of time.  

I have a few colors in Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint...not all yet (building my inventory slowly...little costly on this WAHM budget!)  So, to get the look of other colors...I am mixing them.  Here, I am mixing Florence, Old White and Paris Grey...I will let you know the results later this week.  

Here is a little is still wet, not distressed and not waxed and buffed yet...give her a break!

But...I am finished with this sweet little entry table or set a mirror on her and you have an instant vanity!   When I bought this someone had painted it in a flat black...not bad.  I cleaned it thoroughly and gave it a base coat of Annie Sloan Old White and then Paris Grey over that.

I gently distressed it in natural wear places...

Such pretty, dainty lines...

All done!  I love this little on the "shop" link for more info or message me on Facebook...
