All That Jazz Gets A Furniture Infusion

My computer is up and running again, thank the Lord! You don't realize how much you depend on them until they go haywire on you. I still don't know what caused the problem but sheesh, what a pain.



On another positive note, I FINALLY got this passel of furniture hauled to All That Jazz. It was beginning to look like a warehouse around here. I've never had this much to take up at one time. Usually when a piece is done it gets taken up right away but due to scheduling conflicts and just plain laziness on my part, it took forever. I hate hauling furniture around quite frankly.



It took two trips but after some finagling by my Mom and I, we got it all squeezed in.



Oops, we forgot to change that chalkboard! It's been that way since Mother's Day. Not that you shouldn't hug your Mother just because it's no longer Mother's Day!









I gave you a sneak peek at this dresser last week...



Here's what she looked like after the paint, but before the distressing and wax process.



The finished product. I think this is one of my favorite pieces I've done so far.






Then there was this sweet french style nightstand from the Goodwill...



After. You can't really see the true color due to the horrible picture but it's the most beautiful blue. Annie Sloan's Louis Blue. I think it's my favorite color of Chalk Paint.









The vintage children's dresser, it's Louis Blue as well.



And then we have this lonely little dresser. Sitting to the side. Watching all the action in the booth and not getting to join the fun. Why, you ask? Because it sold before we even got it in the space. It was just waiting on it's owner to finish shopping and come back and get it.

I'll be making my rounds to visit soon now that my computer is alive again! Have a great week!

It looks great! You are so talented at this! I love the one with the wood top. Cool contrast.
What are the tags hanging on them, do they talk about care for the paint or something? Or maybe a special coupon?

Hi Sares!
Your furntiture pieces look wonderful. I love the contrast in the chest and the wax patina. You did a great job on all of the pieces and I know they will sell fast!

Your booth looks great!

They're all great pieces Sares but I do rather like the last one...probably because it's not only a great colour, it has heaps of drawers. (You know me, I need plenty of storage.)

You are getting awfully good with that paintbrush!
Warmest hugs,
Sandi

Wow! Your space looks amazing and your painted furniture looks wonderful. I've found a shop in Nashville that sells AS chalk paint, can't wait to go check it out. I tried to leave you a comment the other day and it wouldn't let me. Hope this one gets through.
