A Bajot Stand Make Over With Annie Sloan Chalk Paint


Hello Lovelies. How has your weekend been?


I was at Ross the other day and found 
this cute little "Bajot Stand" for a bargain price. 
I wasn't crazy about the color, but figured I could
 give it a Do-Over with some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint


I used GRAPHITE by Annie Sloan 
and some clear wax to finish


 


How do you like it?

I found a great spot for it in our foyer


Ohhhh and before I go I want to share another "Annie Sloan Chalk Paint" Project I did recently 
in the Lobby at my Work Place. We recently painted this bold red accent wall in the lobby 
and the golden elegant mirror just didn't look good anymore. So I painted the frame with 
"Annie Sloan Graphite" as well and rubbed some silver finishing paint on it to bring 
out the carvings. Much better, don't you think???
Have you tried Annie Sloan yet? I love it! I hope you enjoyed 
this post, please come back soon for another visit!!

How To Inexpensively Cover Little Decorative Windows

Hello Everyone, you might remember my BIG BOY BEDROOM post I shared recently? 
Well, Robbie's bedroom has these 3 cute little windows that don't open and are really just 
decorative, but sure are nice for extra light. I really didn't want to custom order window 
coverings, so here is how I covered them for cheap. 


When re-doing Robbie's bedroom last month, I purchased these RITVA curtains from Ikea,  
but I only needed one panel for his big window since his bed covers the other end of the window. 



The second RITVA panel came in handy for my little project. 
I purchased a roll of foam from Jo-Anne's Crafts and cut the foam to fit into
 the little window squares. Then I took the second RITVA panel and wrapped the fabric 
around the foam squares, just like I would wrap a present. 

I don't know how to sew, so I stitched the fabric up 
as good as I could....lol 
To make it more fun for a kids room, I simply painted some polka-dots on the fabric 
using some fabric paint and one of those little foam dippers




Soooo easy (if I can do it)

How do you like it?
You can easily take the foam in and out of the 
window too...Love it!
