Every now and then, I THINK I might have just a speck of talent and so I go for
When will I learn..??
but I wanted this luscious color of Annie Sloan Chalk paint, Provence, to dress this cute accent piece.
no sanding needed... (I've painted lots of pieces and ALWAYS sanded)
no primer needed...(I've ALWAYS used primer on dark wood)
...but I am doing just what Annie says to do..
*gritting teeth, tho
things sure aren't looking good...
along about this time, I don't know who I'm doubting the most...
In the middle of it all...
we got hungry....wouldn't ya know.
We have really been enjoying the delicious fresh corn on the cob this summer..
I found two little vintage glass holders for the corn at the same thrift store
that I bought the SPINDLES FROM H*LL
and they are awesome.
The butter melts into the little holder so that you can spin your ear of corn
thru all that buttery goodness.
For a good ole COUNTRY DINNER, I fried pork chops and made cream gravy
to go along with the corn on the cob.
Pork Chop gravy is THE best...
well....and Sausage gravy...
...just one coat...it isn't a great color yet..showing up green here but...it's not...
as it dries, it starts looking better.
Maybe all is not lost after all...
Going to a party this afternoon and as soon as it's over,
I'll put the 2nd coat on.
I'll show you a photo of it if it's not totally hideous.
If it IS hideous, you'll never know it....
