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