Free as a Bird

TGIM! Said no one ever…except Eric Thomas. And me! I’m seriously so excited it’s Monday because even though I loved every second of The Home Girls Giveaway last week, I’ve been anxiously waiting to share some more projects with you!

However, before we get into that, I want to take a second to tell you about a friend of mine who just started a blog with three other ladies. It’s called Wirl Mamas. Wirl standing for What It’s Really Like (to be a mama). They’re here to dish about the honest truths behind being a mom and talk about the stories that no one ever tells you. They take a refreshing point of view on motherhood and aren’t afraid to talk about their hardships. Even though I’m not a mama yet, I’m excited to follow along with them and hopefully learn some thingsĀ before bringing a little one into this world. I’m super excited for them, so go check them out and see what it’s really like šŸ˜‰

Ok, now onto the goods! I bought this little table at my go-to local antique store for $15 and knew it was perfect. I love doing small tables like this because I’m SUPER impatient and they usually don’t take as long to complete as a dresser or larger piece.

Napoleonic Blue Table

I’m so excited to share my first project with Chalk PaintĀ®! I had such a great first experience with it and I know I’ll be using it many more times in the future. I started using it as soon as I got home from buying it and the fact that you don’t have to sand or prime before use makes this stuff so convenient (and perfect for people like me that are super impatient!) It’s great to use indoors because it has basically no odor at all. Which is great for this time of year. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been over this snow since the day after Christmas. I didn’t have any newly purchased pieces in mind for this paint, but we did have a beautiful little wood table sitting in the corner of our living room that I knew would be the perfect Chalk PaintĀ® guinea pig. I fell in love with this color with my first brush stroke!
