Scenes from Paint Day

This is getting embarrassing. My back porch is a total mess. The more we paint, the more the items seem to multiply. After we painted on Friday, I decided that I would just have to give them an ultimatum.....NO MORE GOODWILL PURCHASES UNTIL ALL THIS IS PAINTED AND TAKEN HOME! 

I told Bob about it as we were sitting on the patio staring at all this stuff. He calmly said "I'll tell you what the lady at the Flea Market said when I told her about your painting, shopping and hoarding. She said, 'she could be sitting on the couch watching soap operas, drinking whiskey and eating bonbons. So don't complain, it could be much worse.'" So he didn't complain and my patio will just have to look this way.

On Friday we had a beautiful day to paint. We had so many things to paint that I did not get before and after shots of everything. Helen painting her find!
Pam painting with a new color Emile. Her kitchen stools are getting a make-over! Just wait til you see them finished.

These night stands needed a little sanding before putting on the chalk paint. 

Just some of our work in progress!

One of our finished projects...this little wine cabinet. We just repainted the frame and it made all the difference.

Helen's finished table. Her son needed something to put his alarm clock on, this should be fine.

Judy joined us and didn't have anything to paint except these peach baskets. She just loved the paint and I'm sure next time she'll find something else to paint. 
In fact the next day she was stopping off at our favorite spot,
 the Highway 49 Flea Market!

Someone is going to receive some delicious home-made goodies in these baskets ...come holiday time!
(hope it's me)

Scrappy working on a special project. Didn't want you to see until I could show you the total transformation :)

 I will be posting all the finished projects soon, I hope!!

Also, soon I am going to combine the General Scrappy Blog and the Jo's Painty Place blog. We seem to be doing more painting than scrapping these days, but I'm sure when cooler temps come we will be doing more scrapping. It is difficult to keep up with two blogs so one will hopefully get more posts and possibly more traffic. Anyway, I am trying to think of a great Blog title that would encompass both these creative ventures. So if anyone has any suggestions, Please Bring them ON!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
