ANOTHER HEADBOARD MAKEOVER!

Good morning everyone !

Before you wonder what I'm doing painting with everything else that's going on - let me explain that I started this piece on Thursday - before I got the call that Evan was preparing to make his way into the world :)

It was a piece that I had started LAST summer and never quite finished - it was tucked away in my storage room and dragged out again last week.

BEFORE & AFTER HEADBOARD

And so any moment that I wasn't at the hospital - I'd grab the brush and work a little more on it.
It's extremely therapeutic for me ( and we all know how much I desperately need therapy LOL ) 

ANTOINETTE & PURE WHITE PAINTED HEADBOARD

I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint ™ - Antoinette and Pure White - with clear wax and a little distressing

ANTOINETTE & PURE WHITE HEADBOARD

I wanted it to look a little shabby and a little fairy tale ( ish ) 
Wouldn't it be so pretty in a young girl's bedroom?

ASCP PAINTED HEADBOARD - PINK & WHITE

Well better than it would have looked in it's original state anyway - it wasn't very " girly " at all


Ok - off to make some more dinners for the new Mommy !

ANNIE SLOAN CHALK PAINT - ANTOINETTE & PURE WHITE

There are other things in this world besides painting furniture after all - like staring at a newborn baby :)

Have a wonderful day everyone - it's supposed to be a beautiful week here in Montreal !

Much love,
Me

  5. Now all those fabulous details on that headboard pop - very nice! You are like the Everready Bunny, you just keep going and going and going. What a sweet Mother you are too! Crap, I hope my daughter doesn't see this because my oven wasn't turned on once after Westin was born. Come to think of it, its rarely turned on anymore since becoming empty nesters (that sounded dirty).

  6. It looks very nice. I don't usually like painted wood because I just love the look of wood grain.

  7. Wow! The transformation is amazing! I find it amazing that some people can take an "ugly" piece of furniture and make it into something beautiful!

  8. Suzan,
    Another gorgeous Headboard because of the MAGIC you performed on it! Wow! When did you get the time to do this? I really thought you'd be resting up after the EVAN Miracle Marathon, followed by more gazing upon the new sweet EVAN! Gosh, he is adorable! How happy you all must be! Congratulations again and I hope everyone is doing well! God bless you all! How wonderful to be a Grandma! I can't wait! (and I'm older than you, Lucy!)
    I wish your family the very BEST!

    2. I totally would feel the same, Lucy! Kidnap that little Angel! Sigh!
      Love,

    3. Why SURE! We can sneak Evan out like when Lucy snuck that huge cheese into the plane when they were on their way back from Italy or France, and she wrapped the cheese like a baby in a blanket so she wouldn't have to pay any duty tariffs on it. Did you ever see that episode? Of course she enlisted her sidekick Ethel to help her when the going got rough on the plane. (I hope Evan and Mom and you are doing well!)
      Love,
      Ethel

I really enjoy your work and I would be so happy if you would share this at my Making broken Beautiful party again this week! I would be honored if you would help to make this party grow :0)
