Who Knew Something So Ugly Could Turnout So Gorgeous!

 Occasionally you meet someone that will change your live forever.  That person for me is my dear friend, Beth Chapman.  Not only and I am blessed with her friendship but I am always amazed at her gifted talent of painting.  Beth is not your average painter.  She can take the ugliest furniture, walls, ceilings, etc...and turn them into a masterpiece.  She has a God given natural talent to paint but she also has been professionally trained under the world known 
Martin Alan Hirsch of Decorative Finishes Studio.
  Beth has been painting as long as I have known her.  She was faux painting way before it was "cool".  Over the years she painted countless projects for me.  I plan to share a few of these on my blog.

Check out the transformation of this red chest of drawers she spotted at a Goodwill.  


 Annie Sloan's Robins Egg Blue Chalk Paint. 
 Annie Sloan's Brown Wax was added to give it the antiqued distressed look.

  5. Thank you Rhonda. You are the one that is a blessing to me. If it were possible to have a "twin" without being blood kin, we would be. I love you more than you know.
