::Painting Velvet with Chalk Paint®, say what?!::

Did you know you can paint that velvet chair that granny gave you? Yep, uh-huh, you sure can!! It's CRAZY easy. They key is water, more water and sanding! It's all done with Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan. 

Here's what I started with...Not that bad, right?


There was a couple of stains near the back of the seat and it was missing two corner brackets. The corner brackets were an easy fix, but the stains wouldn't come out :0(  Sooo, because I wanted to try painting velvet with Chalk Paint®, this was the perfect piece to give it a try! 

I have a girly little spot in the store so I wanted it shabby and princess-ish! I went with Old White for the chair and Antoinette for the seat. This is just one coat of paint! 


I did not measure paint to water... It was lots of water and hardly any paint. After three coats of Chalk Paint® and sanding between each coat I got this! 


It needs just a little bit more sanding on the edge and then... Ta da! 


Doesn't it just blow your mind!!! I'm so happy with it, what do you think? 


The best part is, it's still soft and feels like velvet! Come UP stairs to Grungy Galz in the Blue House Boutique  to feel for your self :0)

::Flowers of Sweet Salvage ~ June::

Did you go to the Sweet Salvage Summer Lovin' event?  It was Ah-Maz-ing!! It was so much fun getting ready for! Okay, that's enough talking let's get to the vignette pictures! 

This is the first thing you saw when you walked in the doors! 




Aren't you in nautical bliss? 

This was the one vignette I was drooling over!  I wanted it all!! The aqua and red are just so perfect! 



Ooooh, and did you see this!? I'm a sucker for architectural salvage. I have not seen anything like this for resale in AZ in a longtime and it was extremely affordable! I'm so envious of whoever snatched this beauty!


I was honored to make signs for my friend Cynthia's area! Her and her husband do such a fantastic job with their design each month. I often have pictures of their work on here! This month she did a bunch of patriotic decor, loved it!



When I think of summer, I want to go to the beach! What about you? 



I had lot's of sea inspired hair accessories and even some flower crowns!





Here is just a couple of the shirts and you always need flip flops for the beach :0)
