make me pretty – the color of the year!

March 25, 2013

I must be good at predicting the future. Or maybe it’s just that green is my favorite color. I see emerald green everywhere now and I am loving it. I painted our bathroom vanity emerald green when we renovated last year. I still had some of the paint and decided to use it on this little table.

Then I put a stencil on top in a dark gray. Jasper, my five year old, said I should have used white because you couldn’t see the gray very well, but that was the look I was going for. Then I painted the whole thing with an antiquing glaze.

I am super pregnant right now, my due date was yesterday. I hadn’t painted any furniture in a couple weeks but I was getting so antsy! This little table was the perfect small project to keep me going!







i’m so crafty…

It’s true! Baby number three is in my belly. We are excited and terrified but don’t worry, the crafting must go on. The belly might slow me down a little but there will be plenty before and after blog posts, new pieces at the antiques mall, and I just recorded four segments for Virginia This Morning!

We just had the twenty week ultrasound (and no we are not finding out if it’s a boy or a girl!) and we got some great shots.


Check this one out – the baby is picking his/her nose – in utero! Unbelievable.

Actually I think my sliding days are numbered! At 38 weeks pregnant I don’t have energy for much and sanding and painting furniture will have to be put on hold. But please check back – I won’t be gone forever. I can’t stay away from my before and afters and I love sharing them with you. You might also find a couple adorable newborn baby pictures in a couple weeks! Thanks for reading my blog and forgiving my leave of absence!
