Since I can't get to an actual waterfall, there's the next best thing:
Painting a waterfall dresser.
It's summer. It's hot. It's humid.
It's a perfect time to paint outside.
It was the prime opportunity to bring this piece back to life.
I pretended I was on a stay-cation with my paintbrush and Pandora.
I had a pretty productive weekend.
There was laundry, a closet cleaned out and I even paid my children to wash my car.
(I'm not above bribery.)
The blue is Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint - Provence.
The white is an 'oops' paint I picked at my local hardware store.
The mix is 1/2 cup creamy white, 1/4 heaping cup plaster of paris, 1/4 cup warm water.
When it was dry, I distressed it a bit and waxed with paste wax to give it a light sheen.
Good clean fun.
She came a long way.
From stained neglect to fresh and fabulous.
Now, if only I had Monday off to make it a Real Stay-cation.
Oh well. A girl can dream.
At least there's coffee and what's really important:
French Vanilla creamer.
