It’s A beautiful day !

If you’re Jack the cat!  Laying there on my newly ruffled down-filled cushion in the sunshine.  I would rather he didn’t “lounge” in that chair, but what are you gonna do.  The cats pretty much rule the roost around here.
Also wanted to give you a peek at my newly Chevron painted chest!

I am in love!  Heather and I mixed the paint for the perfect blue.  We started out with Anne Sloan chalk paint Aubusson Blue and Paris Gray.  Heather started painting and said “you know, this looks a little country blue to me.”  EEKK!  I had images of stenciled little houses and ducks with mauve bows around their necks!!   We ended up adding regular interior latex in a pale turquoise that I had.  PERFECTION!  I’m not so into bright colors like a lot of women here in Oklahoma.  I’m amazed how painting this one chest updated my living room and gave it a more modern feel.

And I didn’t have to change a single accessory.  Including the cat. Smile
Thank you thank you, Heather!  Jack says it’s just “puuurrrrrfect!”

  7. I've wondered about mixing in latex paint with chalk paint. Now I know I can. Love this dresser! Heather is so talented!
