Coral French Provincial

You know I typically stick to my blue and gray paint. They sell faster than fun colors but start to bore me after a while. So, I decided to step out of the box on this dingy French Provincial Chest I found on CL.

She was sanded and primed first. I used my Homeright Sprayer which I'm totally loving! The color is Wild Watermelon by Behr. The pulls were sprayed glossy white. A thin application of Fiddes and Sons wax and she has a new life.

 The routered areas were done using a round artists brush. I find it easiest to get a clean line when the paint is mixed with water to an ink like consistency.
 Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

Drop Leaf Table and Flea Market Chairs

Find a table at a garage sale that you love but the guy selling it wants 100 bucks for it. Uhhh, I don't think so. Enter wife who sells it to me for 25.00 explaining her husband doesn't want to part with anything. Then score the perfect fabric for 3.00 in the remnants at Joanne's for the chairs you have yet to find.
Go to the flea market hoping to find the perfect chairs. Turns out there were slim pickins except for these.
Gotta look past that fabric!

They cleaned up nice with a little black paint and my cheap decorator fabric.
Pair them with the drop leaf table and you have a perfect little set for the small space.

Happy Cheap Finds to You!!!
