Many of you have seen my kitchen before, when I posted about painting the walls, adding the Ikea shelving or when I repurposed a great farmhouse table I found at a thrift store. The cabinets are factory painted but after 10 years, they are starting to really show their age. The paint is starting to chip off on most of the doors, especially under the sink and around the oven.
What better way to celebrate the end of the long, lazy summer days than with a HUGE Labor Day GIVEAWAY? It’s full of amazing goodies! These will get you motivated to begin that project you may have been putting off until the kids are back at school or the days are cooler!

I am taking my girls to the Taylor Swift concert this evening and we are gearing up to get ready to go!
Before we leave, I am sharing my sweet gateleg table with you. I bought it a few years ago and only had time to throw on a coat of primer. I have used it all over my house. Here it is with only the primer applied on it.
On this set, I sanded the Coastal Blue back to create an almost denim look. As you see, it pairs very well with brass or gold hardware.Here I am last year at Lucketts painting this great vintage Hepplewhite dresser. Coastal Blue transformed it and gave it a nautical look.
Paired with dark wood, it soars! Today’s great score was a MCM bedside table to put into my son’s room. It will complete his “new” bedroom set! Time to break out the Coastal Blue 🙂
Did you see the great links we had yesterday at Share a Site Friday? I was so impressed with the talent. Please head over to view the shares and link up!
This week, I am highlighting two General Finishes Milk Paint colors, Seagull Gray and Persian Blue. They are both my go-to colors when working with milk paint for a light gray and soft blue.
If you love the look of General Finishes Milk Paint…
Or, if Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is your thing…
And, if these are more beautiful to you thandiamonds (ok, maybe not diamonds but definitely cubic zirconia)
Then be sure to tune in for tomorrow’s Big Holiday Giveaway! It’s a doozy!
When I first see a piece of furniture, an inspiration pops into my head and defines the color and paint/technique I will use. Here are a few pieces and images that reflect what I had in mind when I first found them… a voyage through my mind muah ha ha!
All of the inspiration pics were found on Pinterest.
I receive many questions on the type of paint and colors that I use on my pieces. I am creating a Paint Color Series to help. The first post of the series highlighted my projects completed in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Today I will show you all of the General Finishes Milk Paint projects and the colors used. I still have a lot more of their colors to try!
A Quick Note on Comments: I apologize for the mix-up with the comments section of the blog. I am trying a new system and heard that it was giving you problems when trying to post a comment. I think it is fixed and please let me know via email ([email protected]) if you are still having difficulties. I love your comments and would hate to miss out on what you all have to say!
I shared my new, large dresser on Monday. A very well built, albeit boring, chest of drawers. I had decided to drill new holes to replace the existing pulls with new, pretty knobs. Well, that is time consuming so I decided to shop around and see if I could find 3″ drawer pulls that will do the trick instead. Home Depot was a bust. They have great single knobs but are sorely lacking in drawer pulls. I then remembered that Cassie from Primitive and Proper redid her kitchen (swoon) and the drawer pulls were from D. Lawless Hardware.
