Na-Da Farm Barn Sale is only 6 DAYS AWAY! Oh MY! How the time has flown! Laura, Sherrie and I have been working around the clock gathering awesome finds, painting with Chalk Paint®, and crafting till our fingers ache but it all has been SO WORTH IT! I feel we have truly out done ourselves! And as a result, the three of us have decided to give a little sneak peak of a couple of things!
Here's a pretty from Laura from Whimsical Perspective
Love this piece and just wait till you see it in person! The antique hardware is lovely, and the size is perfect for a kitchen pantry, or living room media center! Oh! I know! OFFICE! So many possibilities!
This lovely is from Sherrie at A Ruffled Nest

This dresser is stunning! I love to take a traditionally used piece such as a dresser and re-purpose it. I know exactly where this would go in my house! The entry! Can't ya just see it filled with gloves, scarfs, umbrellas, and a key dish right no top? (hard to imagine gloves, scarfs and all the cold wintery things we are so longing to forget around here in May!)
This is my little cutie. Now, I know what you're thinking....it's going to be Emperors Silk, or Primer Red....well...it's not! AND better yet, it's something TOTALLY un-Christie!
SURPRISE! Isn't it just a doll?! I think so! So shabby, cottage, cutie!! Again, sticking with my latest craze, custom colors! :) My inspiration for the custom colors was the wrapping paper...YEP wrapping paper! Now, it's totally not the easiest to use and I most likely won't be adding the wrapping paper to my normal go to project uses, but it was fun on this little cutie.
With major chipping veneer, this dresser was calling for something special. Something that would add to the interest and character of the piece. It would have been nearly impossible to fix the veneer problem perfectly, so why not exaggerate it! The wrapping paper hides the wood differences, while it adds textural interest to the problem area. After a light distressing, I sealed it with Annie Sloan™ Laquer.
The green is Antibes Green mixed with Cream and a splash of Arles. The blue is Louis Blue with Paris Grey mixed in. Unfortunately, I didn't get the recipes for these colors...it was kinda mad scientist mixing for this Mix-olo-gist that day! Which by the way, was SO MUCH FUN!
So there's a sneak peak to what's coming to NaDa! We hope to see you there!
