“Hello my darling.” I can still hear her saying those words… every time I saw her, every time I spoke to her on the phone. My Grandma LeClair’s sweet words. We were all her darlings, and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her.
This was her china cabinet. This is my first furniture #antiquing Country Chic Paint project. This I know she would LOVE. This I will be doing MUCH more of.
My primary craft is custom web design & development. I’ve been crafting websites for 10+ years, and alongside that — I’m finally making/finding time for another craft that I’ve been longing to get started with. I’m beyond excited about updating our #farmhouse #decor and I’m so glad you’re here to see what I’m up to.
Although I had some hesitancy when I stumbled across the Country Chic Paint products, I decided to give it a try… and OH MY! What was I waiting for, and where has this product been all my life?! A truly exceptional and LOVELY product, that will be added to my home in abundance!
For this project I chose the following Country Chic Paint colours and products:
- “Cheesecake” all-in-one decor paint (for exterior)
- “Nocturnal”all-in-one decor paint (for interior)
- “Natural Wax” and “Antiquing Wax”
- Red wine 😉
- Lightly sand down piece (MDF and Veneer)
- Apply decor paint
- Distress with sand block
- Apply natural wax
- Apply antiquing wax
- Apply more natural wax
And this is what is what I ended up with:
As I mentioned, the china cabinet was my Grandma LeClair’s. The Royal Albert Petit Point china was my Grandma Bunkowsky’s… and for her to hand that down to me… well… if I only had the words to explain that love and emotion. <3
I felt both my Grandma’s with me while I decor’d this piece… they were such an inspiration in my life, and still inspire me daily. This is what their inspiration helped me craft over the past couple weeks… which I have named my “Hello My Darling” project:
This was FUN! This was relaxing. This was stress-relieving. This was LOVELY.
I can hardly wait to get started with my next Country Chic Paint project… where I’ll be painting upholstery (yes… that’s right) with a sweet little vintage chair find. I hope you visit again. My #farmlifebestlife awaits more simple living, generous loving and constant learning. <3
