This studio is soon to be Lauren Lane Decor..Calgary stockist for all things Annie Sloan. I painted the mural on the bay door a couple weeks ago..It took a few days only because of the 30 degree weather..my paint would be dry before I even got it on the door...and I oddly sunburnt my feet (??) but it was ALL a whole lotta fun!

and the finished Voila!

She found a bench for the end of her bed...it was hideous...horribly ugly...but that Katie..maaaan.. she has an eye for potential....
Bahahahahaha!!! Okok..ok....this isnt the exact bench she brought over..this also isnt any bench I own...lets make that clear. I "borrowed" this baby from Google since I forgot to take a "before" shot pre-painting....
and here's where I remembered too..
the base was dark ugly brown, flaking off stain...and the cushion had rope edging around it...stunner eh?
Distressed and glazed...
Mmm..and this is the point where I curse myself for forgetting to turn off the super irritating date stamp. My fault.. I needed it on this am for Madi's first day of school....because why yes, I do depend on date stamps to remember milestones in my
