Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall

Hello Dear Lovlies,
Guess where I am? Oh, you smart pretties! Yes, I’m at The Treasured Home! Wrapping up my day, here at the shop. It was the day after the Holiday Open House, which was a huge success! Yay!

Thanks to all of you who could stop by, and little angels, like Dawn, who owns a gorgeous florist, Bella Fiore, in old town Fair Oaks. She was sending her customers my way. Thanks to word of mouth, we had a great turn out!

Jini and Joaquin were meeting and greeting, (thank goodness), while I had my first EVER Milk Paint Class! It was small, but a great place for me to find my comfort zone and talk paint!

Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and I had a blast!

Since the other mirror over the buffet sold, I replaced it with this new (old) black and white number, that I recently finished. It’s approximately 3×5′ and it turned out very sharp. Hopefully someone else will agree!

I found this great chair, over at Craig’s, and painted it this wonderful turquoise color. Mr. Wonderful put wheels on her and I’ll add a flat of flowers in the seat. We’ll wheel her out, to hopefully catch the attention of the speed demons, driving past the shop.

Well, that’s it for now. This coming week, we’ll head to the Army/Navy game, for our first time, in Philadelphia. I hear it will be raining. Oh, joy! Still, any time I get to see my daughter, is a good time for me.

Stay well and thanks so much, for being here!

Bless you!,
Barbara

    Thanks, Mary Ann! I believe that this was the 14th layer of paint, but I don’t think anyone will care!

    Thanks, Barb! Having seen your centerpieces, I know you could make that chair “sing”!

    Hi Donnamae,
    I wish I could stop and have lunch with you! Wouldn’t that be fun?! A wave will have to suffice, though. Keep your eyes on the sky! I’ll be wearing blue! :)
    Hugs,
    B.

    I love the turquoise chair you painted up. I am looking to paint my dresser this shade with milk paint but I am unable to find the right color. Did you mix this yourself? thanks
