I‘ve been dreaming of the beach lately. I so want a vacation. I really would love to say that this is in the cards for the very near future, but unfortunately….
Nope, I’m relinquished to a life of housekeeping, refinishing, and blogging. Not all bad I suppose…I just really want to go to the beach for a week.
Since that’s not happening….I guess I’ll just paint about the beach….how’s that?
One thing about going through all your stuff for a move…
~You Find Everything!~
Not that this table was lost….she was just hidden out. At one point I had several booths in the same town where my mother lives. When I closed those booths…some of my stuff went into my mom’s storage shed. I only had room in my pickup for a certain amount…and I never did finish moving all of it from there. I didn’t feel like it would be very nice to move across the country and leave my mom with all my CRAP to have to deal with….Bad enough that I’m having too! lol
Here she is…naked in my driveway…where we unloaded her! She really shouldn’t be naked…in the winter…outside….so…I decided to let her dream about the beach too! She seemed like she would like a zebra striped bikini…..
Don’t judge…it’s a phone pic…for instagram! I thought I might not have enough of this awesome paint from one of my dear friends Lori…from over at Vintage Charm Restored It was a gift from her from when we stayed together at conference. What fun. It’s called surfboard. She sells American Paints… This wouldn’t have been the color I chose….if I were choosing for myself…and I’m SOOOO glad I wasn’t. It absolutely is the BEST color!!!
It’s hard to tell…again…a phone pic…but it really is that same blue.
I knew I wanted a light color for the strips….black or even a dark blue wasn’t an option…besides I wanted to keep with the chalk paint style.
SOOOOO again…since I had it.. I relied on another friends’ supplies… Clydia from Three Mango Seeds sells this super paint. It isn’t chalk paint, but it acts a lot like it. It’s called plaster paint. I love it as much as chalk paint. They both have awesome qualities!
I love zebra stripes…they just might be my favorite animal print to paint. Leopard is my favorite to wear…and as y’all know…to put in my house! lol
I just adore the handle that came on this cabinet…and decided I just had to have it on there…but I spiffed it up with some rub n buff. I also added some to part of the edges… After I distressed them ….of course!
I love how easily both of these paints distress….just a damp rag…or very light sandpaper.
Oh…didn’t I tell you?….Yes…just a bikini. She sure didn’t need to cover up very much.
Nothing wrong with that figure!
Did you notice….
~You didn’t get to see the inside?~
It’s not finished….but it will be…and you’ll get to see it when I do get ‘er done!
For now…you’ll just have to use your imagination…just like any other gal with her little string bikini!
Maybe she won’t keep you waiting long! 😀
I can’t wait to show you the full view…but you’ll just have to wait and keep dreaming about this little girl in her teeny weeny beach zebra bikini~
