Another Finished Project

Finished painting this chandelier for the sewing room.
In its previous form, it was a brass chandelier, that had been painted to look rusted.
Need some new covers as these have yellowed a bit. 
I am now trying to figure out how to hang a few crystals on it from an old chandelier.
Any ideas?

I was a little worried after I was well into painting this with chalk paint, just wishing I had used a can of spray paint, but in the end I am satisfied with the results. 
The picture does not do it justice. 
I used CeCe Caldwell Vintage White as the base coat.
I then mixed a little Annie Sloan French Linen in some clear wax to give it a slight distressed look. 
The painting was somewhat tedious but the waxing went quickly.
It was definitely the budget fix that I was looking for. 
How about you, what kind of projects have you been working on?
Ready for spring, and some spring cleaning!
We have enjoyed some spring like weather the past couple of days, 
today has been cold and rainy but definitely looking forward to spring!

Look What I Got!

Only the best Birthday Present ever!
My sister came across this picture of the two of us a while back.
Her card said to my "
Cool Big Sis"
Actually she is the cool more fashionable blonde in the picture.
I would be the brunette behind the sun glasses. 
I will certainly treasure this.
Hope you are having a blessed day.

Here's a look at the past couple of days. 

Watching the rain.

Judah decided he needed to take a few photos with my phone while we were out shopping.

He took 32 of this shot today while we were in Sams, before headed home.

Another important shot of our purchases. 
He is especially fond of taking pictures with my phone or can't you tell?
Enjoyed loving on my babies, and looking forward to the weekend.
