Customer Pieces, Festivals, and Nate!

My digital camera is messed up so I haven't been able to take pics lately but here are some dining room chairs I recently finished for a customer (she sent pics of them in her dining room). She picked out a great Annie Sloan Chalk paint color, French Linen!

I was told about a couple of other events coming up in the Birmingham area. The dates for the Alabama Symphony Decorator Showhouse is April 21 - May 5 and this year the house is in Vestavia Hills. The First Baptist Church of Irondale is having a Craft Market on Saturday, April 28 from 9:00 - 3:00 and Gardendale's annual Magnolia Festival will be held at the Gardendale Civic Center on May 5 from 10:00 - 5:00. I hope to be able to do both of these shows but just have to see!

Jennifer from the Dear Lillie blog was on The Nate Berkus show today! Her house is so pretty and she has done so many great do-it-yourself projects. She showed how to make a silhouette pillow on the show. Here is a piece of furniture they showed in her house that I really like. I've been doing a lot of customer furniture painting lately and customers are always looking for color combinations and I thought this table was really cute.
