Annie Sloan Paint is making it's way to the neighbors house!

Spreading the Love..that's what is all about Peeps!
I had almost an entire can left of the Aubusson blue.

And yes, 
I love the color, I however, only had a few choice pieces 
I wanted to accent some things with .
I have three more cans on their way.
 Some colors, I have never seen used before in combination and can't wait to try them.
So I decided to walk the can down to a neighbor that I have gotten to know a little better this past year.
Real nice family, and they have Jack over often, so I wanted to do something nice to show a little gratitude.

I told her all about the paint, gave her the can, and some tips and tricks I have learned along the way.
She knew just the piece she wanted to use on it.
I had all the confidence in the world in her. She is a very good painter herself.

She also did something really cool on this old table top, that I think some of you may want to try.
She said it was easy and very reasonable.

This old outdated table had two glass inserts on it.
She bought the glass mosaic tiles at Lowes...

She just cut, the pieces and placed them on top of the glass grouted and wiped.

She did a spectacular job painting and distressing the piece.

She is going to give it to her daughter to put on her enclosed patio area.
She said she would definitely buy the paint and this was one of her favorite pieces she has ever done.
I can tell you this woman loves to paint furniture too!

That is too cute..... I love seeing what others like to do with old furniture ... That will look real cute on a patio......

Hope it is cooler in your part of the world than it is here.. When you pray please pray for rain for Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas.....Animals are dying and crops are being destroyed... We need the Father God to send rain....

That was so nice of you to share the paint. Her table turned out great! I was hoping to find a sell in Atlanta since we're heading that way but I was surprised there aren't any there either.
