A Birthday and A Project

Hope you all had a beautiful weekend!  Our littlest one turned 6 on Saturday and we had an unusual, but lovely birthday party for her.  True to her little independent, nature loving spirit, she wanted to go fishing.  So, we had her birthday party at the lake!  It was a beautiful evening and we caught enough fish for a delicious dinner on Sunday night.  Much more enjoyable than Chuck E Cheese!

We wanted to share this little beauty with you.  
This elegant display case had wonderful curves and carvings, but was just too heavy and dark.
So we lightened it with French Linen.
Distressed back to reveal the wood.
Dry brushed with a little Old White.
Clear Wax for a luscious feel and finish.
Finished the inside with Old Ochre
Here's a peak at where we started again...
 And after...
What projects have you been working on lately?
Be sure to stop by and share tomorrow at our weekly Chalk Paint Link Party.
