Painting Party

March 25, 2011

Yesterday while two of our children went skiing to Whistler with their dad 
and the other was at her lifeguard training, I decided to have a painting party!

Yes, I decided I liked the striped fabric {it will match the drapes} and with a few coats of Canyon Black by Rustoleum it now looks amazing.

Next, this end table got a coat of paint after the primer dried.

Finally, I painted our master bathroom, bye-bye peach.

Not sure I like the white I chose, but I am tired of painting. I think I'll live with it.
Photos are on the other camera, will have to show you next week when the room is all gussied up.

Anyone else working on painting projects?

Don't forget to stop by on Sunday when I feature another "So Canadian, eh?"

  1. I hate the tease! I can't wait to see the finished product.

    I have been busy painting away on my Rast Dressers. Just need to order knobs. I'm thinking retro lions head pulls. We shall see!

  2. Whoa! Someone's been busy! :)

    We're busy painting the nursery... and as soon as it warms up around here I can start painting the dresser for the nursery as well!

  3. I just finished a coat of beautiful navy on a side table and I'm loving it!

  4. I LOVE the chair in black, at least what I can see of it. Can't wait for the full reveal on both projects. I'm finishing up your dresser (selling it) and then getting to work on my cane chair if the rain ever stops! Happy weekend.

  5. Love the black and white chair and can't wait to see all of your projects:) I've been painting forever and a day it seems- on a hiatus at the moment!

  6. You are one busy lady!! Can't wait to see everything put together! Between you and Carol you both find such amazing stuff!

  7. The rain has kept me inside and I've been busy painting countertops! Love the chair can't wait to see the finished product.

  8. Love the striped chair, and can't wait to see all your after pics :)

  9. The chair looks amazing and that blue is so pretty! You have been busy. I always have paint projects but with client projects, my house is always on the back burner.

  10. Like what I see! The blue is fabulous!
    I painted test patches today on some walls... can't wait to have some dedicated painting time! Yay weekend!

  11. Your projects always amaze me Barbara!! I can't wait to see more pics, I already know I am going to love it all :)

  12. What a productive day! My husband and I put the first coat on my son's new room. We still have a few more to go, but we're excited! Have a great weekend!

  13. I have to admit, I was over joyed when my man went away to Scotland for the weekend so I could paint and finish up a few projects while he was gone! I have even turned down an invite for dinner tonight!
    All the best,
    the row house nest

  14. It feels like I'm always painting something....or thinking about painting something.
    This week I'm painting for a client, though.
    Your chair looks like it's beautiful!

  15. Looking forward to the finished projects. I really want to see how that bathroom turned out.

  16. Just from the tiny picture I can tell that the cane chair is amazing!

  17. Thanks everyone. I spent all week painting, now I am tired. Just waiting for a sunny day to photograph!
