A chair's before & after

 Hi there friends...TGIF!
My mom picked this cute chair up at an estate sale. 
She loved the rush seat and size...the only thing she didn't like was the color. 
An easy fix!
 She wanted it painted black...so I pulled out my container of Americana chalk paint in "Carbon" and painted it for her...
What a difference!
Here's how it looked before...
 Now this fits her style so much better!!

 I even pulled out one of my small stencils and added a little design...
I used antique gold rub & buff. 
Then I lightly sanded over it to give it a worn look.
I distressed all along the edges also. 
Then I added a coat of clear wax and called it finished!
 Mom loves the way it came out :-)
~~~
One more before & after...
Big difference...right!!
 Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

~Pretty In Pink~

 Hi there friends...
TGIF!!
~~~~~
We dog sat for a friend the past few days and when she came to pick her up she brought me these pretty flowers...which was so unnecessary!!
We loved having her and Neena loved having a friend...even though she was only 5 pounds lol!
Wish I thought to take a photo of them together.
 
 Such a beautiful shade of pink...aren't they pretty!






Not sure what these are called but I love them...maybe snap dragons?



I'm loving the touch of pink in this spot...
looks like I'll have to keep buying a bunch ;-)
Have a great weekend!

Panoply shared a fun wedding party that took place in a barn.  I love country style weddings!  This one had lots of great ideas if you're planning your own too. 


Mia Bella Passions shared her recipe for raspberry white chocolate drizzle scones.  Oh my goodness, do these ever look good! 


One More Time shared how to make a farmhouse hall tree.  It's so cute!  I'm sure her family will get a lot of use out of that.



Gates of Crystal shared how she made French style shutters for her windows.  They are so pretty!  I love the blue color too.
