Lets Talk Vintage #75

We are sharing the weekly 
link up from
Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!

This is a blog party where you can link up your latest finds, vintage inspired projects, collections, old family stories and even antique things you are selling. And there's
no limit, so you can link as many as you'd like!

Please try and visit at least two other
partiers this week, it is fun to see 
what other vintage lovers are up to!

Today I'm sharing a chalk paint project
 that I hope will be the first of many,
and I have some exciting news! 

First, the chalk paint project:
A French Tool Caddy!

I guess saying, "not too shabby" would be a bad thing.
So, it is shabby and that was the look I was going for!
Of course I forgot to take the before
photo so I have a photo mid-way.

I used paint from Lowes, at least
I think it is Lowes that carries
Valspar chalk paint. The Hubs
bought it for me and said "Why
is this paint so expensive????"

After doing some research
a friend and I are now
making our own... that way
we can use any color we'd like.

The brush I bought at AC Moore.

And whooo Nellie! Stenciling
turned out to be much
harder than I thought it would be!
The first one always is, right?
Let's hope!
And now for my exciting news! What
could it be?
No, there is not going to be another
Bebe in the house. I know what
you're thinking!
No, no, no, no. I think the
ship has sailed on that one.
(This is it!)
But this is also a big deal:
I am finally going to open a brick and
mortar shop!
Yes! Something very new and
exciting. So much to do and plan.
And of course, you will be able
to see the progress as we go along.
Now for this week's features:
  Brocante Tresures shared her love for 
old books. Now most of you
know I also love old books... can't
 resist them... apparently Amy can't either
she brought home a box full!

and  Gina of Victorian Wannabe
shared her St. Patrick's Day
themed tablescape.
Love the rich colors of green!

and while we're thinking green,
check out this St. Patrick's Day
themed cupboard from Debbie
of Debbie Dabble!

Thanks ladies!
