$5 Yard Sale Chair Makeover

Chair Makeover in ASCP Provence 7

This is the story of a sweet little yard sale chair I found for $5 at a yard sale last summer.  I think I love it so much because the elderly couple I was purchasing it from was so sweet.  As a nurse I have worked with many elderly patients in the past and they are by far my favorite.

Here is the before: I love the lines of it and I think it's really pretty just as it is, although it looks better in the picture than it does in real life. I … [Read more...]

The Cutest $5 Table

SONY DSC

I found this little table at an estate sale this summer for five bucks.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it so it sat in my garage. I recently purchased a cabinet that I was thinking of painting a teal color.  The paint I'm interested in using is Annie Sloan chalk paint (ASCP) in Provence. If you don't know about the wonders of chalk paint yet (not to be confused with chalkboard paint), it is awesome because it adheres to just about any surface with NO sanding or priming … [Read more...]
