Gee, guess I needed a vacation from a vacation huh? Travel to and from Jamaica was not good and running thur the airport carrying heavy luggage was just not good for me at all! I woke up Monday morning with pain under my left shoulder blade and couldn’t take a deep breath without pain so off to the chiro I went! I had a rib out of place that was causing the pain and the only thing out of the ordinary I did was the heavy luggage and running with it, I went back today and I’m feeling much, much better…thank goodness!
So needless to say I haven’t felt very creative at all but yesterday I did manage to paint this cutlery carrier, at least that’s what I call it, I bought it at the flea market years ago! It started out a dark, varnished wood then when I was into prim I had painted it a mustard color and put a stain over it. Dark and stormy here so I tried pictures in the best places I could
When I got home from vacation I found my free sample of Valspar paint waiting for me, such a cute free kit I thought.
The color I chose was Jade Bath, here is the picture of the paint I hope it shows up good on your computer! Looks gray on mine but like I said the weather here in Pa. is gloomy today. Believe me it’s a very light blue with a greenish hint to it.
I’m a little disappointed I thought it would show up better, I couldn’t wait for another day because I work everyday till Sat. evening. I think you can tell by comparing it to the crocheted runner it’s on and the curtains that are to the left.
Some distressing I did with my detail sander, love that sander because without any pressure from me it gives great distressing! I also added mocha glaze to it very lightly.
Look at the bubbles in the glass of this Mason jar, I have a whole box full of them that I traded with my sister for a prim crock bench…no more looking for ball jars anymore I have more than enough in my basement!
Another picture of it, such pretty colors!
I’m keeping it here for now!
