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.

I'm feeling a bit emotional as I write this next post as it brings me back to a time  just before the first surgery.  Cathy was still here and it was business as usual at Shizzle Design.  I was nervous about my upcoming surgery to remove the cancer from within my humerus so I took out my frustration sanding an old work table.   I fell in love with this old thing at a local flea market.  It had been well loved in it's previous life , as a matter of fact, it was downright filthy and it took hours upon hours to clean her all up.  

It's taken me a long time to put this together because I simply couldn't find the words.  I know some of you don't follow us on Facebook so you may not even know but I lost my sister almost two months ago now.  "I Hope You Dance" was played at...

I have a THING for brushes! 
my favorite paint brushes 2 Purdy 2 inch angled brush, Frenchic oval, round wax
Paint brushes, wax brushes, buffing brushes, foam brushes, artist brushes ~ you name it, I have a thing for them and have become a wee bit finicky over the years in what I choose to paint furniture.  I've learned through my own experiences that using the right brush makes all the difference in a quality finish.  Below I've listed my absolute favorite brushes that I couldn't do without.
