A month ago, we lost our cat and had to find an spot to bury her. The kids thought it would be best to bury her under our magnolia tree in the back yard.
We picked up flowers from our friend’s greenhouse and cleared a spot for her.
The kids threw in some of their favorite jewelry (ouch!) and we said our goodbyes.
The space needed something to anchor it so pulled an old chair out of the garage to use as a garden chair planter.
I grabbed some paint and slapped on a thin coat of CeCe Caldwell’s Hershey Brown. Then I mixed some Spring Hill Green with a splash of Maine Harbor Blue to create one of my favorite shades of green, watering the concoction down a bit to create a color wash.
The last thing I did was dry brush some Santa Fe Turquoise over it in a sloppy manner to highlight details and accentuate some of the nicks and texture in the existing finish.
Thanx for all the wonderful memories!
A hui hou!
Have a great weekend!!
Right now is a great time if you’d like to do something like this as I just received a large shipment of CeCe Caldwell’s new paint colors including: California Gold, Johnston Daffodil, Traverse City Cherry, Cinco Bayou Moss, Portland Rose, Kentucky Mint, Pinkerington Violet, Texas Prairie and Mississippi Mud. Check them out and or order them online here or pick it up in West Michigan at our Shizzle Design booth at Not So Shabby here. You’ll find our display along side our painted furniture and re-purposed vintage treasures.
