Good Morning, All!
I really, really, really am loving these American Paint Company products!  The paint glides on easily, dries fast, and is oh so easy to distress!  My goal for the barn sale (don't forget...September 12, 13 and 14) is to have at least one piece painted in each of the 32 glorious colors. It might be as small as a picture frame, might be a piece of furniture. I'm calling this little painting project PROJECT 32.  I've been working at it for awhile now, and the pieces are starting to accumulate!  First though, I wanted to share a color chart.  I will have quarts as well as samples of each of these colors available for sale.

This chart is missing two new colors that the company has just added, Uncle Sam, which is a pure white, and a wonderful deep, dark blue, Born on the 4th.  I can't wait to get my hands on the blue....I'm a blue fan!  And, APC has a lot of blue to choose from!

I just wanted to show you a little preview of some of the pieces we will offer for sale...I've even got chick Sharon on the painting bandwagon now!

This little smoking stand was painted in Rushmore, then waxed with several coats of dark wax to give the appearance of a long ago painted piece.

This nightstand has a Blue Jean base, topped with Wild Horses.

Love the way this dresser is turning out. I'm patiently waiting for Doug to make two shelves for me, since I tossed the larger drawers and thought I'd display quilts or blankets on the shelves.

One more piece...this little dresser came from our "Cambridge pick". It's a really small size, but I thought it would be a nice piece for a bathroom or nursery.  It's got Amber Waves of Grain under, you got it, Rushmore!  Think I'm overdoing the Rushmore?

Okay, I'm done showing off!  Make sure you stop into the PLAY WITH PAINT room, it will be in one of the downstairs stalls.  We will have paint available, as well as inexpensive furniture just waiting for your imagination and your paintbrush!!!

Hope you have a great day!
