Just painting...it makes me happy...and a 33%off coupon!

I've been thinking lately about what makes me happy,
really happy!

I think I've mentioned once or twice before that I love all aspects of what I do finding+painting+merchandising+selling
There are other things I'm not so wild about doing on a regular basis,
mostly has to do with the technical end of things.




Only because it takes me away from painting and doing the thing I really love.
Don't get me wrong...it can be equally creative...it's just not painting...
and I am best at that!

So when I'm M.I.A. from blogging or FaceBooking
or being social on the network
I'm usually in my happy place
Painting

Here's a little peek of what I've been up to




A desk with no drawers + chairs with no seats,
come together and transformed as a set.
Painted with an undercoat of ASCP Primer Red
 using a home made turquoise chalk paint to cover it up...
just letting the red peek through.





Now at Leaping Lotus awaiting a new home.




I've had this dresser for years , a great find at $20.




Refreshing the wood top & trim
adding turquoise chalk paint and soft wax to the rest 
just might find this little beauty a new home.
It's waiting at Leaping Lotus.

I recently found this little vanity in a thrift store,
the beautiful toile fabric caught my eye as I was walking out.
Had to have it, painted the piece, washed and pressed the fabric...


Covered up the bland top with a little hand painted fluer de lis pattern...





...and here she is in the Urban Barn in Escondido CA,
along with a few other new pieces that were just made for each other.
I would love if they all went home together!



After taking the advice from another online painter friend
two tone was the way to go





I especially love the drawer pulls on this one...
now at Leaping Lotus.





This is a nice little lingerie chest I came across 
and gave a little chalk paint lift to...it's now sitting in Leaping Lotus.



So...there's my story, morning glory.
Still wanting to keep my fingers in the online social stuff,
but maybe 
just a little less of that
and a little more of this!


Balance and happiness
