I was lucky enough to have been given this lovely table from a lovely friend; I couldn't wait
to paint it! It has such beautiful design, and is in fabulous shape!
I decided I wanted to paint it white and lightly distress to accent it's beautiful features.
This is what it looked like after 1 coat of paint.
As you can see from the picture, I painted inside! It was great to be able to paint inside during the cold months. When the BB Frösch chalk paint powder is mixed in with the laytex paint, something amazing happens (well many amazing things happen)...the strong paint smell almost disappears! The BB Frösch brushes also control the paint so well, that there is very little mess. Yay for painting inside!
BB Frösch chalk paint provides such good coverage, that I painted the whole table
with 1 cup of paint! I did 5 coats to get great, solid coverage, distressed with 220 grit sandpaper and of course waxed the piece at the end. BB Frösch for the win!
The tree's are starting to blossom, and it's finally above 0 degrees...must mean it's spring! Horray! I love Spring time and the feeling of renewal and hope it brings. I love to decorate with greenery in my home at this time of year, so I decided to update my seasonal wreath holder window (painted with BB Frösch of course) to a spring edition by creating a faux boxwood wreath.
Creating my faux boxwood wreath cost me $10, and took me 30 minutes. Now that's the kind of project I like!

All I did was lay my garland around the wreath and secure it down with fishing line and a little hot glue as needed--that easy! You could also use florist wire.
