I have had a nice little break from blogging. Did you miss me, darlings?
It's time to catch up. A lot has happened in the last few weeks, but we will talk about some of these things later.
|I deconstructed a huge white coffee table that I bought nearly ten years ago, really a tea table height, planning to move to the beach. There were two very large handles on either end, like a giant tray. That move didn't happen.|
|Here they are, hot-glued into place. I figured that would be easier to remove and replace the handles when I wanted to put them back, if I ever do, than if I were to use, say Gorilla glue or Liquid Nails.|
|So here we are with a coat or two of my blend of Antibes and Pure White ASCP.|
|... and a glaze...|
|The green looked a little sweet next to those apple green chairs, so... I made up a glaze of pale yellow, and that made it work. More apple-y. Then it was time for a little finish. I decided on wax this time, although I don't usually like waxing.|
|... et voilà!|
I hope I put on the right accent mark.
|This little ice bucket was the color I was going for -- that and the chairs.|
|The glass is back in place.|
|A little detail...|
|I am loving my colorful living room. |
This estate sale wicker rocker got some clearance cushions from India via Pier 1.
Today I am joining a party again! Go over to Between Naps on the Porch to see Susan's better than my originals seashells chargers.
Also, I am linking to Nita at Mod Vintage Life for her Mod Mix Monday party.
On Tuesday I am going to see Kari at Thistlewood Farms for her big color party.
Brenda at Cozy Little House has a brand new party at her blog, too -- Tweak It Tuesday -- so I am joining that one as well.
On Wednesday, we will visit the talented Kim at Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesday.
I am linking to Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home.
And last but certainly not least, I am linking to Miss Mustard Seed, better late than never, for Furniture Friday
