*************************


I had some time for a quick project last weekend...

I found these totally rad
Terra cotta trees at Homegoods a few weeks ago.




Honestly, we cannot have anything in our yard...
it either gets chewed up or blown away!

My very first thought when I saw them 
was that they would definitely be survivors!  

But the only problem was, they were kinda ugly. ;)

I was planning to run to Hendersonville to pick up some of that gorgeous Antibes Green Chalk Paint, by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint...but I just could not find time to get over there with the La Plates show & the stomach bug & the Turkey day preparations...

Isn't is pretty,
Antibes Green...
sigh...


Antibes Green-chalk paint. I'm thinking this will be the color I use to redo our table!



My mommy is an art teacher.
She's the original crafting tramp in our family. ;)

She lent me some pretty green acrylic paint &
some totally RAD gold.




That pretty green just spiffed them right up!




 Then I went back over them a bit with the gold....





I finished them off with some Annie Sloan, 
delicious Primer Red dots...

(( see if you can guess what I used to make my dots...))





I finished them off with 
a good coat of clear gloss spray paint.




 & the best part...
they FIT right on top of my urn pots
on the front porch,
just like they were MADE to go there!

I love that!






I'm pretty tickled with them. :)


Sharing today over on 


Go check out all the awesome stuff over there!

Hope you guys have a GREAT Wednesday!!

  1. Those are so cute. In looking I noticed your front porch. What type of treatment is on the concrete? Is it painted or is something mixed in with they poured the flooring?

    You are a very talented decorator!
