Weekend Distractions No. 9

I joined a furniture group on Facebook. Someone asked the other day what is everyone’s go to paint. Not a lot of people have answered but the majority have said Dixie Belle. There are no retailers in New Mexico. I think I might have to try it out, and if I like it, become a retailer. Food for thought. But then again, while looking at paint colors, with S&H is seems a little expensive. Amazon makes it look like you can get it there for less, but it comes out the same. LOL.

I have also admired Sausha over at Sweet Pickins for years. She sells her own line of Milk Paint. If she has made a living painting furniture with her own paint, it’s gotta be good. screen-shot-2016-09-24-at-6-23-18-am

Then again, I keep seeing people say they use Shermin Williams. That it has a really nice finish, you just have to prime first. All I know is, I have some furniture to paint and I need to get this show on the road.

I followed The Nester for some years, I think it was because of photography in the beginning. Several years ago she started Write 31. Writing and sharing for 31 days in October. I never thought it was something I could do until a few years ago. I followed along in the party (you can see my posts from the button on my sidebar). Last year, I couldn’t decide what to write about in time to follow along. I’ve got my groove on this year, but I am so behind in the planning. Not to mention, I have some projects to get finished to write about. So I need this paint to get a bed painted. My groove has to get my ass in gear and get some things done around here. In the meantime, I have halted posting my restoration of 407 in order to use those posts in October. Ooh, I just realized I have to create a button and my Photoshop Elements (one than one version) have stopped working. Oh, another distraction.
