A New Fave {Antibes Green}

Happy Monday, friends!  It’s stormy and rainy here in Atlanta, so I’ve got something to brighten your day.  I’ve been itching to try Annie Sloan’s Antibes green for weeks.  I finally realized I had the perfect small piece right under my nose, just waiting to become a pop of glorious color.

Don’t you love it when that happens?

I scored this little chair for $4 when I bought the matching dresser for $25.  The dresser became the French Linen Lovely, but this little girl was languishing in my garage along all the other DIYs-in-waiting.

I gave her a little sanding, two coats of Antibes and a clear wax and buff.

She’s soooo much happier now. 🙂

The color is so vibrant and fun!  I think it’s my new favorite color. 🙂

She’ll be in the booth before too long, but on these rainy days I sure am enjoying her brightening up the family room.

I did some baking and treat making over the weekend, too, so I’ll be sharing those goodies this week, along with my scores from Scott’s.  I was VERY good, by the way — booth purchases only plus a gift for my sister-in-law’s birthday.

See you soon!

Sharing her…
