Home for the Holidays 2012 ~ Hand Painted Christmas Link Party

OH  MY  GOSH!   I can’t believe this day is actually here.  I’m actually kind of
 nervous right now BECAUSE…  I’ve never hosted a link party, UNTIL TODAY!

For all of you stopping by for the first time, let me introduce myself.   I’m Shelly Andrade, owner and decorative artist behind Shizzle Design, a family owned furniture painting business located in West Michigan.

I spend my days breathing new life into vintage furniture and have a serious passion for creating French and Cottage Style paint finishes.

My fascination with painting furniture led me to CeCe Caldwell’s Paints which has taken my work to an entirely new level because of their amazing all natural chalk and clay based mineral paints.  They also have the world’s best wax ~ just sayin!
Check out the fabulous colors of CeCe Caldwell’s Paints here
Blogging introduced me to tons of incredible women who share my same passion for painting furniture.  I am so honored to be hosting a Christmas Themed Link Up Party alongside seven AHmazing bloggers from across the U.S..  These women are FABULOUS!and with that, I welcome you to Hand Painted Christmas

Please join in the fun by linking up any furniture, home decor and anything else you’ve transformed through the magic of paint to change the look of your home into a Winter Wonderland!!Link up something as basic an old reindeer, brushed  with a little paint (originally this was covered in gold glitter, I painted right over it!)

  1. Great post! You are a painting genius! I know who to ask questions to now. I have tried Annie Sloan, but not Cece. I can’t wait to find the perfect thing to try it on. We have a local store that sells it.
