Last summer I met Shelly from shizzle-design and she introduced me to CeCe. Caldwell chalk paints. I hadn’t done much furniture painting, and she made the process look “rather simple”. There was very little sanding or prep work that needed to be done. This sounded like my type of painting!
I chose to work on the furniture in my girls’ bedrooms. I went with a quart of the Carolina Sun and a small container of Simply White. Because you can water the paint down, I was able to get all of their furniture painted! Here are a couple pieces all finished.
Oh, I’m just keeping it real with all of the extra accessories here! No staging is taking place today.After I finished painting the girls’ furniture. I decided I wanted to paint something for me. I had my Poppop’s stand in our dining area for years and I was ready to “change it up” a little bit. One thing that is hard for some people, is changing something that belonged to someone special, or painting over real wood! I could relate to both scenarios.

My youngest daughter has been faithful to keep asking me if I have blogged lately. Well, since it has been so long since I blogged, and my blog is about domestic living, I wanted to show you a couple of changes that we have made to our home this past year. A spring and summer mantel, with a homemade sign that I made with my Dad over Christmas vacation.
Speaking of my Dad, here is our fall project. We tiled our backsplash. I say “we” very loosely. It was mostly my Dad, when he and my Mom visited in the fall. I’m very thankful for all the hard work that he has put into our home. We decided on a gray subway tile backsplash with a gray grout. I was back in forth between the gray, and the white. I love the added color. However, with the new tile, we ended up wanting to paint the walls a gray color
as well. You know how it is, one thing leads to another!
Well, that is the short list of previous updates to our home. Since, we are coming up on the 10 year mark of building our home, I have a couple of minor home improvements up my sleeve for this summer.
