All That Jazz Gets Invaded By Furniture!

 I FINALLY got this passel of furniture hauled to All That Jazz. It was beginning to look like a warehouse around here. I've never had this much to take up at one time. Usually when a piece is done it gets taken up right away but due to scheduling conflicts and just plain laziness on my part, it took forever. I hate hauling furniture around quite frankly.

It took two trips but after some finagling by my Mom and I, we got it all squeezed in.

Oops, we forgot to change that chalkboard! It's been that way since Mother's Day. Not that you shouldn't hug your Mother just because it's no longer Mother's Day!

(horrible picture alert)

I gave a sneak peek at this dresser last week on my Loveleigh Treasures blog...

Here's what she looked like after the paint, but before the distressing and wax process.

The finished product. I think this is one of my favorite pieces I've done so far.

Then there was this sweet french style nightstand from the Goodwill...

After. You can't really see the true color due to the horrible picture but it's the most beautiful blue. Annie Sloan's Louis Blue. I think it's my favorite color of Chalk Paint.

A vintage children's dresser, it's Louis Blue as well.

(horrible picture alert again)

And then we have this lonely little dresser. Sitting to the side. Watching all the action in the booth and not getting to join the fun. Why, you ask? Because it sold before we even got it in the space. It was just waiting on it's owner to finish shopping and come back and get it.

A few of you have asked me where I got my Chalk Paint. I don't live close enough to a stockist so I had to order it and have it delivered. I have placed 2 separate orders.

The first is the most local stockist to me, The Bella Bungalow, in Arlington Washington. They were very prompt with their order and I had absolutely no problems. However they only ship out on Thursdays so keep that in mind if you place an order. I think I ordered on a Friday and had to wait a whole extra week until Thursday rolled around and on top of that it was Memorial Day weekend. So I was waiting a while.

My second order was with Robyn Story Designs and Boutique.  I placed an order with them because they were having a free shipping special and I just couldn't pass that up right! I ordered 2 more cans of paint and 2 wax brushes that The Bella Bungalow didn't have in stock when I ordered. This order took almost a week but it had to come all the way from Tampa, Florida so I think it made pretty good time. I have learned Robyn Story Designs has their paint about $4 cheaper per can and they also don't have a handling fee so I believe that will give you more bang for your buck. They are both a great option. I didn't have any problems with either and would place an order with them both again.

I have been informed by Miss Michelle that she won't be posting here much any more so I guess it will be left to me to keep you up on all the Jazz business. Michelle said she will pop in when she gets her Etsy shop up and running.

For now I roll with the changes. Stay tuned later in the week when I share information about a local Antique Fest coming up on July 8, 9 and 10th. The whole Centralia downtown "Antique Row" turns out with great discounts and vendors line the streets. It's tremendous fun and you can find some great junk!

Your painted furniture turned out beautifully and your space looks amazing! I've seen and read a lot on the blogs about chalk paint and have found a shop here in Nashville that will be selling it. Can't wait to check it out.
