Before I share the subject of my title…. someone help us! Deer keep eating our plants!!! We’ve put up chicken wire, marigolds, and even tried bobbex, but they just keep coming. If anyone has a sure fire and safe environmentally friendly method of stopping the deer, please let me know. Maybe I should put Jake on garden watch….
Anyhow, the past couple weeks I’ve been so focused on the barn that I haven’t painted anything. But I never shared this bed I painted
an embarrassingly long time ago last summer. I loved its vintage cut out details. Here’s what it looked like to begin with….
It was a standard mahogany finish, but as you can see pretty scratched up. I went to work with a favorite color of chalk paint, Paris Gray. I gave it two coats, lightly distressed it, and then sealed it with a clear wax. I then buffed it to finish with a rag. I never shared it because I forgot to get a great photo of it…. Here was my original after with a photobomb by Emmy in weird dress up clothes riding her way too small old big wheel… Less than desirable for an “after” shot. 😉
beds can be hard to fit when you have a small space, so the bed made it to the barn once but was never fully set up. Well, we finally had a chance to set it up properly for the first Sweet Clover sale.
I thought I would share it with you all set up….
One of the shots in yesterday’s post actually showed me loading it up as it was one of the first pieces of furniture to go Friday morning!
Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday… we have nothing on the schedule for today except for a little get together this evening (and an early morning run with friends). I am looking forward to a day with no plans. I think the kids and I need it! Maybe I will let them hang out in their pj’s for a while….
