The goal is to add blue to the house this month. Blue is suppose to make things seem cooler right? August in Texas = Hot as hell!
The kitchen isn't that large, but I like to put a cabinet in the middle of it so I can keep the counters clear. Things tend to pile up in the kitchen, so it's a constant give and take.
I used Ce Ce Caldwell's chalk & clay paint in Smoky Mountain Gray to paint some things for the kitchen a while back. Although it's called gray, it is turns out blue. Go Figure!
Here's the little trinket box in its original state. I never did distress and dark wax it (the step I like the least) but I do plan to.
Need to "Get Round To It" sometime soon. Everything looks better with chalk paint and a little dark wax! It still amazes me the endless number of things you can paint if you have a mind to...
Here's the first coat of chalk paint on this shiny metal tub. The first coat is always the moment where you say "What Did I Do???"
Thanks for dropping by!
