Everyday Matters Challenge #4-Draw your mug.
This is a mug from Poland, given to me by my brother-in-law, Tom, for Christmas. It holds a huge amount of coffee. In the morning when I fill it up, I feel very rich. I had never seen a mug like this before and now I'm seeing Polish pottery everywhere, particularly in antique malls.
Here's a recent piece I finished with chalk paint. I love the blast of tangerine when you open the drawers. Martha approves. While working on that piece, my friend Amanda, drove in with a table. She was on her way to Good Will to drop it off and thought of me.
So here's the table before
And, here's the table painted with Paloma, a gray Annie Sloan chalk paint. Don't you think the grunge-yellow of the garage floor sets off the soft lavender gray?
And then I decided to repaint it a two tone Duck Egg Blue and Old White. And it may get painted again! Cause chalk paint is just that easy.
My assistant abandoned me to snack. She bumps into the sweet orange cherry tomato bush til the fruit falls and gobbles what she can reach. Then she waits for more to grow. A new crop appears daily.
