I got a sample can of paint mixed at Home Depot in the PPG color Treasure Isle (PPG1141-5) which was the exact color of Mom's new teal dinnerware! I mixed Chalk-tique powder into the paint and we painted a few other little knick-knacks like the wood words and the metal stars. (The key to the best chalk paint mix is to use a quality flat paint and use more powder than the directions say when using over shiny surfaces.)
The cream clock Mom found at Home Hardware. The wrought iron wall decor above the clock she found at Home Sense. The wrought iron scrolls on either side of the clock she already had. I used some rough lumber scraps and Kreg-Jigged the boards together, stained the boards, and thus gave the scrolls a pretty backdrop.
The cream fleur de lis Mom bought through an ad on Kijiji. I then made the wood backdrop using the Kreg Jig for the back boards and screwing the top two boards on top. It is hung mainly from the hangers on the back. The fancy wall hook is from Michaels as well as the rope. We used D-ring picture hangers on the front (painted with black nail polish) and tied the rope to those. Its a pretty way to dress up simple wall decor and give it that "Joanna -- Fixer Upper" look, don't you think?
- installing moose horns above the octagon window (stay tuned for this one . . . you don't want to miss it!)
- painting the chairs cream as well as the table legs
- painting the bench and reupholstering the cushion
- adding a few decorative touches to the Ikea dresser
- a ceiling makeover (again, you won't want to miss this post)
Some things that MAY happen in the future are to replace the trim boards and flooring, but those things are not likely to happen this year for sure.
