"The Belle of the Booth"

I named this piece "The Belle of the Booth" 
because I think she is by far my best piece yet!  
I used ASCP Old White and what's that other color?  

I wish I could tell you, but it's a secret...

Belle of the Booth

Ok, it's actually not a secret, but I really can't tell you 
because I was just throwing colors together.  

But I can tell you that it includes some Provence, Old White, 
Aubusson Blue, and some Antibes Green just for good measure!  
I then topped it off with some clear and dark wax. 

Hope no one asks me to match this color! 

The pictures just don't do justice for this vibrant color!

I had to paint the faux key holes otherwise they 
were going to break when I tried removing them.  

After I painted and lightly distressed them...
 I fell in love with the little bit of gold that showed through. 

What do you all think?  Is she the Bell of the Ball?

Check her out for yourself at the 
Graceful Living booth (aisle 14) at the Frisco Mercantile!

PS-Don't you wish all chunky legs were this pretty? ;)

Lasso Coffee Table

I'm calling this my Lasso coffee table!
Why you ask?  
Because of the rope details.  
Ha ha...sadly sometimes I crack myself up!

Old White with distressing showing graphite underneath. 
 I love how the roping turned out!  Even if it's not at the rodeo.  ;)

Soooo very green...

And no I'm not talking about the lovely ASCP color Antibes Green, but myself to this blogging world!  I'm so new to it and I know it's going to take a little time for me to get adjusted to blogging.  Thanks for coming along on the journey and bare with me as I learn!
