Annie Sloan Chalk Paint


lulus birthday 015

This table was painted by…Nana Diana at Nana Diana Takes a Break…she is a sweet gal that is very creative.She shared that she used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. And my thoughts went directly to the furniture painting I am planning for the Loft.

Thank You Diana!!!!

I went on line and no stores carried it in my area, so I ordered it. It came yesterday.



If you are interested in this paint, just google Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I will let you know how I like it. I plan to do my picket headboard with this paint.It should be really good for shabby chic looks. It works indoor, outdoor, and on almost every finish. No sanding, clean the piece you are wanting to paint and then paint. If you want a white wash look you can add water to the paint.

The work continues on the Loft. We will be texturing the walls this weekend. Then we will paint walls and trims. I can really see it all coming together now and I love it already.

Happy fall :)

The Witching Hour…


Tis the witching hour of night,
Or bed is the moon and bright,
And the stars they glisten, glisten,
Seeming with bright eyes to listen
For what listen they?


I went searching through the Ole neighborhoods. And I do mean Ole…Remember when you would have been really shocked if you had seen a pretty Pink Princess. And scared to death if you ran into Madonna the material girl. And half out of your mind if you had Harry Potter’s gang come around the corner.

So to end this little Boo!

Here are a few pictures just for you….


Here is four…watch out there are more….
