Sorry for my absence. I have been crazy busy with all sorts of things! As you can see, I have started revamping my blog to be much prettier and I am SO excited! I still have some work to do, but we're getting there.
Last weekend I participated in a sidewalk sale at Old Glory in Riverside, CA. I also sell some of my paints here, and we are planning a workshop soon - I will post about that soon. Old Glory is a super cute shop that has tons of charm and a HUGE selection. From shabby chic to primitive, and fine antiques to old toys, there truly is something for everyone.
Anyway, I didn't have much, but it was a lot of fun and I sold some great things. My hunny is just happy that I got some of my "junk" out of the house finally. I tell him they are treasures, but he just doesn't understand. Its ok, I still force him to participate!
I just realized that I forgot to take a picture of 2 adorable mirrors that I did. They sold SO fast and the gal that bought them was super excited and in a hurry, so I didn't snap a picture. I worked on the Duck Egg blue bookshelf while I was out there in the 230 degree weather. It was not enjoyable, but the paint dried incredibly fast!
I also painted this gorgeous dresser. I asked Sherrie, the wonderful (lucky) owner of Old Glory to start painting so that she could get a feel for how great the coverage is. We were able to use just one coat of, you guessed it, Duck Egg. Can you tell I have a favorite color?
My first workshop is coming up and there are still spaces open! It is on July 13th from 1-5pm at Mission Galleria in Downtown Riverside. I will be teaching 4 Annie Sloan Chalk Paint techniques. If you are new to painting or even a pro, you will LOVE the techniques and the paint. It is simple enough for a beginner and fancy enough for a seasoned painter. Feel free to visit Mission Galleria to sign up, or you can contact me through the blog and we will get you signed up!
Until next time folks…
