Bonjour Mes Amis!
Just thought I'd share with you some of the newest creations that I've made for my Etsy shop.
I love finding lazy Susan's that I can transform with a little paint and tlc!
So I had alot of fun giving this recent find a French twist!
It's been painted with my favorite shade of creamy white chalk paint.
And since you know I love all things French, I thought this stencil advertising a French bakery was quite fitting.
Oooh, la, la!
Another thing I love hunting for are nice wood candlesticks. There are many I come across that I turn down. But when I am lucky enough to spot nice chunky ones, I quickly snap them up!
I decided to paint these in a pretty light French blue chalk paint.
Then I gave them my special distressing and aging treatment.
Light blue is my absolute favorite color!!
Next up is this nifty wooden tool box/tote. Well, it wasn't very nifty when I discovered it!
It was just plain unfinished wood, and was practically begging me for a makeover!
So, I mixed up several shades of chalk paint to come up with this pretty mossy green.
I thought the French flower market stencil was pretty fitting to add!
Ok, if you aren't sick of seeing my stencils, here is another recent creation of mine!
I've painted and sold quite a few of these wood crates.
They are so fun to transform with chalk paint and French themed stencils.
I decided to go with a lovely light blue for this one, and creamy taupe lettering.
I can think of so many uses for these crates!
Fill them with books, as I have here.
Or they would be so handy in the bath to hold towels and other supplies in style,
In the living room, store extra throws, pillows, or even board games.
The possibilities are endless!
To each end I stenciled a large fleur de lis, which is quintessentially French!
