make me pretty – so shabby chic!May 14, 2013
My husband use to have a food blog and every once in a while he would get free stuff. An extra dish at dinner, a product sample sent in the mail. What was my blog getting me? Well, it did help me get some writing gigs. But I also got a coffee table. One of my lovely readers gave me a coffee table.
I left it in my garage for a long time because it had a leather top and I wasn’t really sure how to work with that. The answer: chalk paint. The miracle paint can cover almost any kind of surface – wood, plastic and leather!
I decided that with all the flower carvings I should just embrace the girlieness and go 100% shabby chic which I believe usually includes cream paint, distressing and flowers! Check, check, check.
