Little Table, mermaid chair and sister!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Wanna see a cute little table all painted and shabbied.....I thought so...
This is Annie Sloan Chalkpaint.  I'm still painting from the first can.

 It's going to my booth at Miss Minnies.  (sigh)

 Got this little chair at the auction.  It was already painted yellow.
I gave it a little dry brush with some creamy white.  I then used an iron on image on the canvas seat.  The vintage mermaid image is from Graphics Fairy!

It sold the day I took it to the shop!!!
Here's why I haven't been around all week.
My sister is here!  We've been having fun shopping ,eating, laughing and shopping, eating, laughing...repeat.....

I love her so much!!!!

Now get out there and create, make, sew, paint, write, craft, photograph, repurpose or find something wonderful and share it with us!!!

Well, aren't you having fun? I LOVE the table! I'm going to use chalk paint next time I want something painted white and shabbied up. Your sister is a cutie. Love her dimples! I wonder does she like her dimples? I always hated mine when I was growing up. I just know you two are having a blast!


Donna said...

So glad you and your pretty sister are having a great time, Sissie! I am loving your table. I have one very similar to yours, that my Mom bought many years ago with her S&H green stamps. Maybe some day I will get brave and paint it! And your mermaid chair is awesome! That is one of my favorite mermaid graphics to use:)

Ginger said...
