Chalk Paint: My new BFF

I told you Chalk Paint was going to be my new BFF. I'm using Annie Sloan's paint, and it is the easiest paint that I have ever worked with. This piece of furniture was a simple little TJ Max find that I have had forever. Though the daiquiris are cute, they aren't exactly my look, but a lovely coat of "Paris Grey" was all it needed. Paris Grey? Are you kidding me!?!? I would paint my entire house in this color, if my cute carpenter would let me, just because of it's name.




I am going to take this lovely to "The Lemonade Stand", aka: our antique booth. Have I told you my husband has named it "The Lemonade Stand"? He says it is pretty much just a lemonade stand for big girls. I can't say I necessarily disagree with him.

I totally missed that you are opening a booth. I just went back and read it and had a HUGE laugh over your face wash cloth and your girls....hahahahahahahahahahahaha! I'm going to be laughing at that all day...hysterical! Anyway, I've been wanting to open a booth also...mainly just for the hobby, fun, and energy outlet. So I am anxious to hear more about y'all's adventures. ;o)

This looks great, Amy! And I think "The Lemonade Stand" is a great name for your booth. That cute carpenter of yours is also quite clever. :)

A wonderful transformation. You rock.

"The Lemonade Stand" is an adorable name! I love this dresser. Shocking, I know. ;-) Has there been anything you've done that I haven't just loved? Don't think so.

When you scratch your finger nail on it does it come off??? I attempted using it but gave up after I tried several times to get it to not scratch off. I can get it to stick to plastic but tried my kitchen island and all I had to do was scratch my finger nail on it and it came off. I also tried it on a scrap piece of flooring. Same thing.
