  1. Congratulations. I finished an old dressing and I love it.Happy New Year.

    Happy New Year!


  3. Wow-- you just might get the "productive" award for 2012! Happy New Year!

  4. The painting, learning and fixing up is a lot of fun. Happy New Year!

  5. I've used Annie Sloan, heard a lot about CeCe Caldwell, have even made my own, but have never heard of Fat Paint? I'm off to Google to learn more about it! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Gorgeous! It's so cool that you're using Fat Paint, my girlfriend distributes it. Oh and that little mirror, I have almost exactly the same one. How funny! I bought it in 1980 something in a tiny town on Lake Huron. I've never seen another one since!

    Love all your painted projects. Have a great night!

    Happy new year!

    1. I just checked & see you're in the Fraser Valley. No wonder you know Fat Paint!! :)

  7. Hi Joy ... you do such a great paint job on your pieces. Nice to see you don't do a lot of heavy sanding to give them the time-worn look. They will get that way soon enough. I have two big pieces that I plan to paint this year and hope it works out good.

    Happy New Year.

  13. What wonderful projects! You have so many pieces new life!!! Love the chair!!!! Great work!

  14. Remarkable job on all the makeovers.

  15. What great projects! You did an amazing job on them all! This was my first year using Chalk Paints, too! I haven't tried the Cece Caldwell Paint (not carried locally). I primarily use Annie Sloan, but have also used Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint, and La Craie.

    Now following your blog! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

  16. Just found you through I Gotta Create and your furniture is great! I'm now following you :-)

  17. Visiting form FJI. What a productive year. DIY is so fun! Wishing you more of the same in 2013.

  18. So many great projects!! I really love the toy bench - that turned out so beautifully.

  19. Gotta love all those before and afters. Nice work. Reminds us it CAN be done!

  20. You did a wonderful job. Love the transformations.

  21. Wow! You did some really great work. Thank you for sharing this at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Hope to see your prettiness again on Monday! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  22. I love all painted furniture and I am so glad that it is once again becoming fashionable. More and more people are starting to use it in different areas of the home instead of just bedrooms.

  23. All your furniture turned out beautiful! Thanks for sharing at Knick of Time Tuesday! Please add a link back to the party so you can be featured in the future.

  24. Hi Joy, I really enjoyed looking back at all of your projects. I have used homemade chalk paint and then just this week I painted an old cupboard I had with Annie Sloan Old White. Have not tried the others. Not sure what fat paint is. Did you find that you liked one the best? I agree, it's fun to experiment with different things. I would like to try some milk paint. We are finishing our basement and I have quite a few things I want to paint. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

  25. Nice work! White is so fresh and bright...definitely great for updating an old wooden piece. The buffet and the painted mirror are by far my favorite...but they all look fantastic!

  26. I love all your work, looks great! I'm a new follower ;)

  27. Nice! I have a paint project in my near future. Never used chalk paint so I am a little nervous. I'll look around and see if you have any tips for me!



Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
