Doins'

You may remember the china cabinet I bought second hand.  I needed a place for dishes, and a place for crock pots and such in the bottom.
The piece is pretty, but  dark.
I have wanted to change it since day one.


So finally, I did.



And I love it.   It's Annie Sloan chalk paint.


In our new, improved studio, where we do what we want, when we want,  Lois has started a new project.
Rep weave.


I helped her get the warp on, but this is her baby.


I think she is doing great, don't you?
I see more Rep Weave coming.



Me??  I'm happily stuck on clamshells.  These are shaded.
I am having FUN, and honestly, what else matters?

Ooo- love the cabinet. It looks beautiful in it's new paint. I hope you have as much fun with yours as I have with mine. Deb

Looks nice! I have a piece that I've thought about painting but never seem to take the step forward and do it. Maybe this will motivate me to at least choose a color and then think about it some more.

The cabinet looks wonderful!! I just started using chalk paint with wax on wooden boxes and love, love, love the look. The clam shells are so pretty...

I love the cabinet in it's new paint - and your clam shells in that color combo? Gorgeous.

Please, where did you get the clamshells pattern? Is it more than 8 harnesses?

I bought an old hutch too! For the exact same reasons... and mine is darker than I probably would like too. But, I did not think of chalk paint! Thank you, Hilary- such a great idea!
