Pink Polka Dots ~ She is beautiful !!


~ Oh so beautiful~
I am slow with posting my new , to me dresser re-do's ..
Love this pink polka dot dresser!! She is just beautiful .. This dresser was in such good shape i had to think for awhile about painting it or not.. But guess what , i love to paint !!
I did not sand it down. I painted over it with Glidden primer, 3 coats and then on with the light pink paint. Two coats of light pink paint , then brown polka dots. After it was almost dry i hand sanded and distressed lightly. When she was all dry i put two coats of Annie Sloan soft wax on her.
She will be listed soon on our Etsy store! The Campbell's Country Store ..
Oh i am learning so much following many DIY blogs.. Boy these ladies and gentlemen have many new ideas to share .. Thank you for sharing your ideas with all of us bloggers...
Now that the cold and snow are on the way we have to move our painting projects indoors, so after dinner our dining room is transfered into a painting room and Jody is just as happy as can be painting away until midnite or later.

Sweet ~Ava ~ China Hutch ~

This is the top of the hutch ~ before ..
This is the bottom of the hutch ~ after Gary sanded it for me.

Painted and lightly distressed..
Painted a light blue oops paint and Annie Sloan chalk paint , in cream~.. This was the first time i have used chalk paint . Oh how i love working with it....
Beadboard back is cream chalk paint.
All over the hutch is light blue with somr cream chalk paint on it.
Then i hand rubbed Annie Sloan's clear wax on it. Can i just say this wax is awesome...
This hitch is so beautiful ~ I really would love to keep it...
But then i really need to start selling some of the furniture that we re-do..
So we will see if it gets listed for sale soon....
This is sweet Ava ~She is so beautiful now!!!

Oh this china hutch we picked up off of Craigs List . Somebody really didn't want it anymore..I love it ..It went from old and unwanted to faboulous. First we had to travel 2 1/2 hours one way to go pick this baby up. Then 2 1/2 hours back home. But it was well worth the travel..

Got many projects done today!!

Little step stool.
Half table
Corner hutch
End table
I just love this Dry sink Cabinet...So many of my re-dos i bring in the house. I have a very hard time with wanting to keep my vintage shabby chic furniture.. I really should sell most of them.. Soon i will have a new list of items for sale...

We have been busy running and shopping for lots of fun things to re-do.. Lets just say we spend lots of time in the van, with our cargo trailer behind us..

We have many vintage dressers , buffets, and chairs to shabby chic..
I love to paint , really i do.. I ordered Annie Sloan Chalk Paint , oh i got it yesterday. I still have not tried it . I was so excited to get my new paints...Just not sure which piece of furniture to put the Annie Sloan paint on .. Maybe a really cool hutch we just picked up this week....
Have a great night!!!
