A little bit of Antibes...

This can officially be called my first makeover in the new house.  As you know, I am officially obsessed with this color. I WANT to use it on everything but so far I am only brave enough to use it on small things. So this is the small thing I used it on this week:
A small foot stool with no top. I purchased this over the summer and spray painted it black. Such a silly thing to do. I swear the black stayed tacky for months. I was afraid to finish it because it never seemed to cure. THIS IS WHY I NOW USE ANNIE SLOAN CHALK PAINT. After waiting months, I finally redid the project in 2 hours. Here is the finished project:

This will be going to the shop tomorrow. Visit Carter's Cottage to purchase this lovely piece.

  5. I just love it. See, I would never think to put green with that pattern and that is why I don't have cute pieces like that around. I am a new follower visiting from Project Queen. Vicky from Mess For Less

  7. Two hours! You rock :) I wish we could get Annie Sloan paint here in Australia. We are really missing out.
    Fantastic makeover and I am now your newest follower. I'd love it if you'd share this at my Saturday Splendour Party which is still open!
