New Paint update

Ok, so I was really hoping to get the Ethan Allen hutch done and to my booth this weekend....It didn't happen.  I ran out of paint and had to order a sample size to finish up.  The finish is AMAZING but oh so expensive. This is where I am so far.

A little more distressed than I would have preferred, but notice the circles...those haven't been painted yet.  But they will give it just the punch it needs to balance the aged look. 

 I can't wait to finish it! 
Paint the circles, finish the bottom, 3 coats of poly to finish it off and DONE!.  I hope someone else likes it as much as I do.  It's going to be tough to give this one up.

I did get this piece done though.  

Here are the updates to my booth his weekend.  20% off the book page photo frames, t-shirt scarves and wine bottle lights. 

 Check out the tiki torch my Dad put together (Mom made the photo frames). 
I thought I got this "re-do" gene from my Mom but I'm finding out more and more, my Dad is just as much to blame for the sleepless nights filled with ideas that make my head spin.  We're having so much fun.

Trying some new paint

I've been reading about this Annie Sloan Chalk Paint all over the blogoshere, so I thought I'd give it a shot.  Wish me luck!

This is the piece I'll be trying it on.  It's an Ethan Allen piece, so hopefully it's as great as everyone says it is.  I'd hate to ruin this one!

Hopefully it will be ready for Lalah V's next weekend!
I'll post pictures when it's done.
