Turquoise Love or in this case Provence Love.ASCP chalkpaint

 OK I work Friday's at  6th Street Antiques in Belton.  The little grain sack shelve I found their and this piece too. You need to visit great finds, great prices and many vendors shop their due to their great prices. This little end-table or what ever table. I painted in Provence turq....yummy Happy color. I did a straight forward paint job, nothing fancy some of my fancy not selling and this is a go too color for a sale...I did 2 coats, then some sanding of the wear spots. Some dark wax too.

 I really like the details,the turns,legs and three levels. Very serviceable and easy to fit into many decors. A pop of color or a pop of shabby with a easy look nothing, I thought maybe I am trying too hard ,to make interesting. Said  keep it simple stupid....to me. I sanded and then clear waxed.

 Can I just say grow grass grow we have done some work on our yard and it is filling in,but right here is under some big oaks. So lots of rock gardens surround my trees and this little table.

 In addition to the what ever table a little jar of vintage mother of pearl buttons are going to Moore & Garrett. Do you like the details on this little fun table. Excuse my rocks but if you take a pic anywhere outside of my house you will have rocks...my poor cars that hauled all these back sorry.

I will sign off with this picture,from my last piece. I had given it a coat of Ochre the nite before and let it dry well before taping details. This is my Grace, she is my buddy in Kalamities. When I am painting you usually find her somewhere in my work room. Grace and I say thank you for your comments,stopping by and those who choose to follow me...Thank you guys...see you on my next post
