No Dear, the Irony is NOT Lost on Me...

 So Peeps,

Tell can be honest.  Have you ever bought a little something, say, a cute stool, and it was old and chippy, and dirty and good bones but kinda distressed.  And then, you spend say a couple of hours over a couple of days a couple of times "refreshing" the piece, only to realize you now had a little something, say, a cute stool, that was old and chippy, and dirty and good bones but kinda distressed?  Only somehow your new and improved version was still better because it was clean and cuter on some level?

Not that that scenario has EVER happened to me...

I was just wondering about you guys...

And apparently, I couldn't stop taking pictures.

Now that she's been redone, I may have to find a place for her in my home...

But, since space is at a premium...

there's a good chance you will see her...

in an Etsy shop near you.  Specifically, Elegant Farmhouse.

Very soon...

In all of her chippy and distressed glory.  Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and clear and dark waxes rock!

 I'm glad you all "get me".  Mr. FL and I did have a nice laugh over this one though.  I missed taking "before" pictures, but trust me, it was worth the do-over.  Really.

Until next time,

  1. Hee hee. Yep we get it!

    And my hubs thinks we're all a little touched to even look twice at anything shabby.

    I keep showing him blog posts and etsy shops, he stopped asking why now. It's a start.

  2. I had a little chuckle reading this post. My hubby thinks I've lost it,when I get all fluttery over chippy stuff :)But we know we are just quite normal :) xx

  3. Hi Judy,
