Selling my creations! :)

Well, it has been awhile since I last posted.  First off we were on vacation.  We went to Hilton Head for a week of relaxing on the beach!!  Loved every minute of it!  I had brought my lap top with and half way through our trip it stopped working!  It would not stay on for more than a few minutes and then would shut itself down.  ugh!!!!!!  Thankfully it is still under warranty, but the bad part is they have to ship it out and it might take up to 3 weeks!  In the mean time I am trying to use TJ's lap top which is VERY SLOW and OLD! 

I had mentioned a while back about a new venture I was starting.  I have decided to give painting furniture and selling it try!!  I have run out of room in our home to put new things, but I love finding old things and breathing new life into them sooooo much! 

I have a few ways I am going to try this.  I am going to finish pieces and sell them, plain and simple.  I am also thinking of having some pieces that the customer can pick their paint color!  For now I am only going to paint with Annie Sloan since I know it works great!  

I know Annie Sloans wears well too so will feel secure in selling that piece to someone. 

I am pretty excited about this!  I will be even more excited when I get my lap top back and it doesn't take hours to load my pics!! :)

I am still going to be blogging about my flea market finds and my decorating adventures.  I will just add some cute things to buy now and again!

Here is my first one.........

I have to be honest. I was planning to keep this little beauty.  But as you know I have quite a few benches around here.  I am going to have to start parting with things so here we go!

This little bench is painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Chateau Gray. It then has a coat of Annie Sloan clear wax on the top. 

The bench is approx. 19" high and is 14"W X 17"L

Here is a close up of the top.


Thanks for looking!!
