DIY Decorating - My Addiction to Paint

Ever since I was a little girl, I loved to paint.  When I was young, my dad used to take my sister and me "sketching."  We'd go to parks and the lake and just sketch.  I remember going to sketch an old barn more than once.  When I was a teenager I was obsessed with drawing faces.  I remember getting the latest issue of Tiger Beat and I would draw all the current heartthrobs.  Then when I was older and became a mom, I painted murals in my kid's rooms and then later for my grandkids.

About 20 years ago or so, I began faux finishing.  I painted everything including walls, floor cloths, cabinets, and furniture.  Even the toilet couldn't escape my brush.  If it didn't move, I would paint it! 

Here are some of the projects that I have done over the years.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my projects.  I know I sure enjoyed putting them together.  For the past few weeks I've been experimenting with one of the newest paints - Chalk Paint.  I'll have more on that in a later blog. :)
