It's that time of year when everyone is getting ready for the holidays.  Well... not everybody but ready or not, Thanksgiving is only two days away and before we know it, Christmas will be here. It's been Christmas for several weeks now at Shizzle.  When you sell home decor, you're elbows deep in evergreens months before it hits the floor. For whatever reason, I tend to paint something red around the holidays.  This year was no exception.  We have several fantastic reds across our three paint lines.  This time I I went with APC's Cannonball & Firework's Red.  This petite dresser is sealed with Clear and Dark Wax and is now available at our Shizzle Design space within Not So Shabby.  I used Cannonball because it was open but I actually prefer GunPowder as a base color.

I painted this children's rocking chair simultaneously with the same combo.  The chair is for sale at our Changing Thyme's location at 2900 Wilson Avenue, Grandville, MI  49418.

This outstanding buffet came from a dear friend of mine who was unable to finish painting it because she was taking care of her mom as she battled cancer.  She passed this gorgeous gem onto me to do my magic.   Little did I know at the time, my life would also come to a screeching halt. When her husband dropped it off, I immediately fell in love.  It had the most gorgeous lines and super cool hardware.
