FEATHERED NEST FRIDAY

It's Fall break at our house-
so we have been busy working on projects...


enjoying the beautiful warm weather,
getting a little Halloween decorating done

and doing a little sleeping in too.

:)


I tried Annie Sloan chalk paint for the first time yesterday on one of my old mirrors.
Loving the color of the Duck Egg Blue- it is so pretty and so perfectly french!
Here's the post if you want to take a peek at the before & after
I have the perfect piece to transform with the next color I am trying
French Linen.
I think it is going to turn out amazing!!
Stay tuned!

Last week's party was fantastic as usual!

  1. We're on fall break too...the sleeping in part is so nice, but my two kids together are like oil and water, so that part isn't so good. I can't wait to see what you're going to transform next with the chalk paint. I really need to try that stuff! Thanks for hosting :)

  40. I am always bying mirrors they just go any where in the house

    Your mirror is beautiful

    thanks for this party can't wait to look around

  41. I love the color you painted that mirror, Courtney. It turned out gorgeous! I just used Annie Sloan for the first time last week. I am surprised at how much that little can can cover. I like the fact that primer is not needed too. And isn't it nice how it sands off so easily?
    I think I am hooked now.
    P. S. Thanks for another great linky party.

  45. I love the mirror! Thank-you for hosting -- I just became one of your followers.

  46. Your mantle is just stunning! And what gorgeous features (really crushing on the Ballard Designs knockoff table right now!)

    Thanks so much for the invite to your party this week. My upholstered headboard with nailhead trim doesn't strike me as very French - BUT you'll be very pleased to know that I have bought a very lovely set of french provencal side tables to flank my headboard. I can hardly wait to finish them (hubby and I are trying to decide whether to simply apply a wood stain, or actually paint them white). Once they are done I'll certainly share the results with you!

    Definitely a new follower of yours :)

    Take care,
    Christina
