Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

We built our house 7 years ago. I decided it was time to make a little change to our bathroom without spending a fortune. I decided I would paint the master bathroom cabinets and I LOVE them!!!! I found some new towels the day before so I decided to pick a paint off the towels. Turquoise it is!!! The color is Provence by Annie Sloan. The great thing about AS is that you do not have to sand before you paint. It is pretty thick so all you have to do is spread. I put 2 coats on. I originally sanded parts of the doors and faces to make it look rustic or shabby chic but the hubby didn't like. So I repainted to sanded areas.

 first coat

 After the second coat of paint I put on the clear soft wax
 I love the color!!!!! This is after a second coat of wax. I waxed it twice since it was in the bathroom and wanted to protect cabinets from the water drips. All I need now is hardware. 
This project only cost me $50. My sister had the wax and brush so all I had to buy was the chalk paint. My next project will be the girls' cabinets and I am looking for a dresser. Have a blessed day!

A Short Trip to Lake LBJ

Last weekend my brother's family was at the lake. My mom, dad, my girls and I went out to play.
Ethan, KB, Kate and Kyli
 My dad, aka Pappy

 At first, Kyli was scared to jump in the water because she has been watching River Monsters.

This week a lot of cleaning is going on at our house since the girls are with their Mimi and Pawpaw in Fredericksburg. I miss them but I am getting a lot of things done around here. Chris and I went on a date to see Lone Ranger last night. Pretty cute and funny movie. I can't wait to show you all my turquouis bathroom cabinets. Stay tuned.........

July 4th

On the 4th we laid low and just stayed at home. My nephew Ethan spent the day with us. 
We swam.....
 We ate lots of yummy food........

 and smores............

 Raider wanted a smore so bad!!!

 Chris brought home two chickens last week. This is our white trash chicken coop. Thank goodness it is at the back of our acre so no one can see. 
 Baby Deets

 we finished off the night with a couple of little fireworks

One of the best 4th of July because we stayed home and chilled. I stayed in my pjs all day. It is hard to go anywhere and celebrate cuz Deets HATES fireworks. And since he is a huge part of our family we like to stay home with our furry kids. We went to Fredericksburg this weekend and spent time with Chris' family. We spent time with chris' Granny in the nursing home, ate lots of food, Chris and Kyli went to the horse races, meet the Grona's for dinner at Hondos and celebrated Pawpaw's birthday.
Have a blessed week!!!!
