I picked up a few more sample pots of CeCe Caldwell's chalk paint and started painting frames.....

This color is called "Portland Rose."  It's a very, very soft shade of pink.  This mirror was a gold stripe metallic color and the paint covered it up really well. I added some mocha glaze and wiped it off and got a pretty nice affect. 

(kittie toys in photo....not intentional! )

It's now in my booth at Miss Minnie's.

Thrift store found frames are so much fun to paint.  They sell really well too.  I think everyone loves the versatility of hanging them alone or using them in other ways.

The blue gray one is Clark & Kennsington's "You're the Boss," and
"Harbour Lane."

The other one is " Georgia Clay" chalk paint by CeCe Caldwell. This is a nice salmon color....love it!

  Gizzy is ignoring me today.
I had to cut back her treats to help her keep her
girlish figure....

Okay that's it.
I'll be back later with a post about Crowns.
You know how we bloggers love our crowns.

I must have missed something because I am not familiar with this particular chalk paint? It's very pretty! I really like the salmon color! I am regretting not buying some pretty frames at a garage sale now!~Hugs, Patti

Living in the Portland area I love the name of the first paint color. Chantel loves fat cats--so I always have to keep her from giving our kitties too many treats! I am thinking Gizzy would really like Chantel:)

Isn't it funny how our furry family members can pout and show their displeasure with us? I really think they are part human....cuz...Bentley clearly lets me know what he wants!!

Beautiful painted frames, dear Sissie- I love the look of that chalk paint- the blue and pink are so sweet. And love the photo of the mirror showing your sweetest bench.
"poor" little Gizzy!!! :-)
Love and hugs,Dorthe

Love all the frames, Sissie! I haven't tried that CeCe Caldwell paint yet, but I like the idea of samples. I have to see if there is someone here that carries this paint {and the samples}. I got ASCP samples but I had to order them online.

Gizzy is not happy about less treats. She is not concerned about her girlish figure currently.
