Small Painted End Table

Hey there!! I'm back after a bit of a blog break! It was nice taking a step back, but I think I'm ready to get back into the swing of blogging. After the holidays I'm hoping to be a bit more consistent!
Today, I thought I would share a little end table I painted yesterday using General Finishes Milk Paint in Linen. It's a very pretty creamy white and one of my favorite General Finishes milk paint colors.
Here's the table before:

And after:

The white is such a nice update I think.

I couldn't resist throwing a little Christmas décor in here too!

I just love the pretty curve of the legs.

I also had to share this spalted maple vase! It's my first piece of anything spalted, and I think it's so beautiful!!!

I'll be getting the rest of my Christmas décor down from the attic after Thanksgiving, so I'll be back to share more soon!

Arrows, Feathers and Living Room Sneak Peek

Hi there! I'm not doing very well getting back into the swing of blogging. There has just not been a lot going on around here. However, I did paint my living room white over my long New Year's weekend and finally got around to hanging things back up on the walls. One of those I'm sharing today!
I found this wood arrow recently at a thrift store and I thought it would look perfect paired with feathers. I whipped this little project up in less than 20 minutes! So easy!

I used a combination of feathers purchased from craft stores and ones my son finds for me outside.

I thought I would also share a little view that shows a sneak peek of our new tufted leather sofa that we purchased from and triangle shelves my husband just built for me!!!

If you want to see what my living looked like before click HERE!

Come back soon to see more of our living room, including our new rug!!

Persian Blue Chalkboard

Hey friends!!! Did you miss me?!? Do you even remember me!?! I've returned after an unintentional blog break. I don't have much to share since I haven't been painting furniture much, but over my break I did repaint my living room and buy a new tufted leather sofa! I'm hoping to post a living room update soon. 

Over the weekend I painted a swinging frame I turned into a chalkboard. I used a new (to me) color by General Finishes called Persian Blue and it's absolutely gorgeous! 

The frame was just simple and plain wood. 

After two coats of Persian Blue and some distressing, it's now stunning! 

It's good to be back! You'll be seeing more fun projects soon!!
