I don't know about you, but I am an impatient painter.
In fact, I have ruined many pj's because I couldn't wait for my husband to wake up to change my clothes and paint early on some mornings.
Today was no exception.
There was a package waiting for me yesterday when I got home from work.
I have been waiting for it to come and I was so excited.
Yep, I joined the chalk paint club, I bought it from HERE. I think there may be a slight delay in the shipping because EVERYONE else seems to be buying some too.
I had to wait and paint today because I made the mistake of mentioning to Mr. M. that I wanted to paint the cabinet in the dinning room.
He did not say it, but I know he was thinking,
"but you just painted the cabinet black last year."
He has learned that when his wife has painting on her mind it is best to just let her be.
As soon as I got back home with my youngest son from pre-k I started painting.
I did not even bother to move anything!
Not much room to paint, I kept getting the back of the paint brush hung up on the small table.
Why bother removing the contents when I can just paint carefully.
Just look at the difference of the black and white. I bought Chalk Paint as seen on Miss Mustard Seed's blog. I chose Old White and Louis Blue, I know, I know, I am not a blue person, oh well, I guess I will just have to use the paint in my son's room. He likes blue.
In a quick 1/2 hour I was able to almost finish painting the whole piece. The side I painted first was already dry so I did a second coat on a small area and I am happy to say that I will only need two coats to cover the black.
My new WHITE cabinet!
I have painted many pieces of furniture over time and I was kind of in disbelief about how well the chalk paint would cover, look at the bottom right corner of the upper door. I am a believer and I may just be ordering some more, no blue this time.
Well, if they have an aqua I may, just don't tell my sister!
So, you can see I have a new WHITE cabinet that I love!
How about you? Are you doing any painting or are you still waiting for your chalk paint to arrive in the mail.......
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
