Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Mo

When it's time to choose a color of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for a piece of furniture or other project that I'm planning, I have this handy guide to help with the decision.

I painted small squares of each color I have onto the top of a white shelving unit beneath the window in my basement workshop.  My newest color, CoCo, (thanks, Janet!!) was barely dry when I took this photo.  Having the actual paint samples on hand like this makes choosing colors a lot easier.  (I'll give you a real-life example of this when I reveal my lastest project to you in a few days.)

Happy Sunday, Everyone!!


It's time for your daily reminder to vote for our grandson, Caleb, in the Parents Magazine cutest baby contest.  Our efforts are paying off, and he is moving up in the rankings, but we still have a LONG way to go.  Please click the link below to vote, share this on Facebook and/or post it on your blog.  We have the power to reach a LOT of people, and we need as many of them as possible to get this cute little guy up to #1.

  4. They're all such great colors. I don't think I could choose just one if I had to.

  5. I am getting ready to have my great-granmother's 1922 White (brand) sewing machine made over. A friend who does furniture restoration is doing it. Here is a link with my exact sewing machine (!) in Annie Sloan paint! Now if I could only make up my mind....!
    Cannot wait to see your finished project :)
