I feel totally overwhelmed right now with things to blog about and projects to share… So this has the potential to be the longest post ever with lots of pictures, but I am only going to share one of the finished projects today!
My husband had asked me what I wanted to do for Mother’s Day. With the Lucketts Fair just around the corner, I wanted to have the day to work. I also wanted to fill our planters, and get out all of our garden accessories. So that’s just what we did! I finished up several projects… my nightstands, two dressers, a cabinet, and some smaller items. I’ll share the pink dresser today. I was amazed last week at what a hit the pink table was last week. I found a dresser that was very similar in style for $30 last week.
Since the nightstand was a hit, I thought I should go for the same look. It’s painted with Annie Sloan’s Henrietta pink chalk paint, and distressed with a paint scraper, by using the side of the blade (rather than the blade) and scraping along the edges. This piece will be coming to Lucketts with me!
I can’t wait to share all the other pieces I have finished this week! For now, here are some items we were able to put back out in the garden today.
My garden cart (a $5 flea market find) with my painted pots, which we filled with geraniums and lantana.
This create sign, which was a $5 find at Chartreuse & co last year.
We filled out chair planters with impatiens, as they don’t get much sunlight.
This metal flower was a $2 yard sale find a couple years ago.
I purchased this little fairy for Emmy last year when it was 50% off at Hobby Lobby.
And this pink bunny was also purchased for Emmy last year at Lucketts. And have you seen my mulch? I swear it’s there hiding under all the pollen!!!
My mom purchased this toadstool made from a gourd for me last year when she took Emmy to a local Fairy Festival. I love it!
We had fun getting all that done, Sawyer even got on his bike and rode (he is a very nervous rider, so we are approaching it sloooooowly.) And the kids presented me with a new Ihome (they broke my old one a couple years ago and I have lived without it since.) I love music, and am sooo happy I can now listen to it again at home! I plan to purchase Adele’s new CD from itumes! Chris also picked up this awesome tank for me from Hot Topic since he saw it at work. How cute!!!
And now, how bout a couple of sneak peeks… I am busy planning an event this week, and found these merry guys for 10 cents each at a yard sale. They will come in handy!
