You know her
Someone wrote a famous song about her once
You've painted up your knobs
and waxed and buffed your tinted drawers
The shadows on the wall tells me the sun is going down
Oh Ruuuubbbby - don't take your love to town.
It wasn't me that started that whole crazy chalk paint fad
But I was proud to restore all the pieces that I had
and yes it's true that I'm not the girl I used to be
Oh Ruby ..........................there's still creative sparks in me
It's hard to love someone who gives furniture the " eyes "
And the wants and the needs of a dresser your age
Ruby I realize
But it won't be long I've heard them say
Till wood comes back around
Don't take your love to town..................................
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - Emperor's silk - clear and dark wax
Kenny Rogers inspired song..................
Just so you know that although she was quite a bit of work - this whole dresser took 1/2 tin of
Emperor's silk - HALF A TIN !!!!!!!!!!
Incroyable !!! ( I feel like getting all bilingual on you today )
Now excuse me - she's leaving now 'cause I just heard the slamming of the door
the way I know I've heard it slam one hundred times before
and if I could move - I'd get my brush and paint her boring brown
oh Ruuuubbbyyyy -
for God Sakes TURN around ........................
I could have used Ruby Tuesday - since I actually painted her on Tuesday - either way it's all about her leaving me .....................
The lady is a tramp ( there you go - 3 songs in one post )
A perfect " Fall " color - because that's all I'm willing to do for Fall at this point lol
I'm NOT ready for it!
And I'll probably mention that in every single post until I am !
Have a wonderful day y'all !
I have some work to do on this beauty!
See you tomorrow - bright and early ♥
Join me at these fabulous parties !
