As I sit here at the computer on this sunny, bright Saturday morning, the sun is creeping up and the skies are completely blue... not a cloud in sight.
Of course, I should be careful what I say and not "jinx" it... I was recently bragging about never getting sick just to end up there last weekend.... yes, on a weekend no less! So basically all my plans for picking up Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and getting to work on my Craigslist find were pushed back a week.
I decided upon Coco for my color. I read that outside of the US this color is named Old Linen. I selected this color because I had decided to go a different route for the interior, but you'll have to wait to see it finished to find out what that route is...
I painted the first coat in straight Coco...
This little sample of the second coat is mixed 2 parts Coco to 1 part Pure White. Right now I'm debating on the mix of the third (and hopefully final) coat that I'm going to paint before heading outside for a day in the gardens.
My flower beds have been neglected and need some work.
As does the vegetable garden spot.
So I'll be breaking out my garden gloves... I'm a Nitrile glove fan... how about you? Gloves or no gloves?
Oh, and in my little spin around the place in my pjs with my camera I realized that I forgot to show you this "new" project my husband came home with around the end of January... something to tinker around with... in all of his spare time!
And my spare time?
