busy, busy

This week I have been happily busy . . .

working on some custom work,

completing my quilt,

anticipating the arrival this new collection, Ikebana, by dear Stella,

finishing the back of my kitchen island,

 and wishing I could finish my blocks for the Pervalong hosted by Charlotte.  (The striped fabric is a very stretchy pant material.)

I picked up this cute, little dresser to experiment Annie Sloan chalk paint on.

It's actually really cute as is.  Unfortunately, I have no room for it, so this will be going on Craigslist for the Raleigh, NC area.  Sad for me but great for someone else.  I'm envisioning this piece as a nice nightstand or drop off station for a small entry way.  Did you notice the caster wheels?  Too cute!

p.s.- Pink Chalk Fabrics is having a great sale right now.  I picked up Simpatico, The Birds & The Bees, and a few other prints I have been eyeing for some time now.


  1. your kitchen island looks great!

  2. Oh, that dresser is gorgeous, are you sure you want to cover it in chalkboard paint?

    1. It's chalk paint which is very different from chalkboard paint. It's super cute as is, but I thought this would be a great chance to experiment. I've never tried Annie Sloan paint, but I have heard wonderful things about it!

  3. loving the perviness! It looks great :-D

  4. Oooh love that dresser. Love the tiny casters!

  5. The dresser looks awesome! Let us know how you like the annie sloan chalk paint. I've been thinking about trying it. Your quilt looks amazing!

  6. Love the dresser! It is a match to a tall chest I have. A family piece. I wish I had room for it!

  7. Oh, that quilt is amazing! Can't wait to see the finished product. Also, that dresser is adorable! Even as is. Great find.
