Greening Things Up

I love green.  My Papa hates green with a passion. 

So I know when he visits us next time, he will look at the once brown table and raise an eyebrow.

Then he'll turn and say, "Tina Louise, why did you do that???"

And I'll reply, "Because I can, Pops.  Because I can."  

Magoo was out of town so he wasn't here to intervene.  He's pretty old school about the painting of furniture.  There was nothing wrong with it and it cost a bundle, so why paint it?

Shout it out girls...because I can!   So, I did.  I'm pleased as punch with the way it turned out.  The table needed to be green.  How could I deny it's innermost needs?  I was very happy to accomodate the poor thing.

So here she is...all ready for her debut.  She loves her makeover.  She wonders what took me so long.

For those of you who want to know about her lovely complexion- It's Antibes Green, Old Ochre and Old White from Miss Annie Sloan.  I used a mix of plain and antique AS wax. 

What you can't see in the photos is the colossal mess in that room...every inch cluttered up with stuff to be painted or sewn this weekend.   One day our house will look normal again.  Maybe. 

 Update- house still a big mess with different projects  ;  )  


  1. Where we DIYers are concerned, change is always good! After all, if we weren't constantly changing things - by painting, sewing, repurposing, etc. - what would we blog about? lol

  2. That is so pretty~ My hubby never wants me to paint wood...and my Dad used to tell me that too...but I am getting over it (slowly). This is so pretty.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me your thoughts. I appreciate each and every one!
