Ok, so I've been feeling pretty formal lately, so I thought it was time to bring in some fun colors . . .
But first I'm gonna have to tell you about how I found my inner child . . .
Ok, really I just want a chance to talk about my kids--'cause that's what all moms love to do right??
Last night while I was making a batch of brownies, my kids thought it was funny to start bringing the couch cushions into the kitchen. Well, all four of them were playing so nicely together, I didn't have the heart to stop them. I stepped out of the kitchen for a few minutes. Then James my "informer" came to tell me to come see what they had done.
Yep, I never knew I led such a cushioned life. That's my kitchen with wall-to-wall cushioning.
Well, I decided to make the best of it. I lay down and tried my darnest to convince the kids it was nap time. Maybe that didn't work, but we did have fun playing blanket forts for awhile.
Finally I set the timer for cleaning up. And would you believe for the first time in the existence of our family--
they actually all helped--without crying???
Even my baby helped take the pillows back upstairs!
And here they're laughing because they were "sooo silly" putting the seat cushions on top and the top cushions on bottom.
You, know I learned something. I really underestimate the capability of my children sometimes! Of course promises of ice cream and brownies helped their motivation.
Ok, thanks for letting me blab. Back to furniture!!
This is my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Provence Set.
I actually used a custom mixture of about every AsCP color to make the brown--with a bit of brown and black latex thrown in. I was trying to match a customer's bench, so I had a LoT left over since I kept having to mix more to get the right color!
The top blue is Provence chalk Paint. I heavily distressed it just for kicks and giggles. The drawer pulls are new.
Thanks for stopping by!!
Sorry I was MIA for a few days, I've got lots of photos edited and ready for posts, so I should do better this week. ;)
