Red Paint!

I have a lot of painting projects stacking up and decided a couple of weeks ago to start tackling them.  My daughter gave me an old ad with a Scottie dog in it a couple of years ago and I have a number of old frames I have picked up cheap to choose from, so I got busy with a new can of Country Chic chalk paint.  Lovin this red!

I took a picture before I put the glass in the frame because I always have problems with glare.  I just mounted the ad on a board that I painted black then added the glass.

On the wall.

I see so many Knockoffs on every one's blog and Pinterest so I thought I would share one that my woodworking hubs created and I painted.  It is not a Knockoff from some high end shop, but I am always pulling out pictures of things I think my hubs can build from magazines.  He has a stack of them in his shop stashed away in a drawer.  This is one that I probably tore out quite some time ago.

This is my hubs first attempt at bending wood.  The handle was made by gluing together 7 very thin pieces of wood and clamping it around a form to dry.


I used the same red paint that I used on frame above.

I used a tinted wax on both the frame and the table.

Loved how it turned out.

The woodworker built this table as a surprise for me.  He thinks it will be perfect for my dream Glamper, that I hope to have sometime in the future, and I think he is so right!

Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings from our home in the woods.
