French Provincial DIY Paint Make Over

Hurrah!! Hurrah!! It’s the first of May! And boy howdee I could not be more excited.  The weather actually starts to get nice here in Wisconsin- like- winter is actually over (gulp- I hope!).

The big difference this year is of course that we are all still stuck at home with the Shelter in Place Order.  The one saving grace I have is that my studio space is isolated.  There is no one else that will be there, so I can safely go- and escape the house and hubby and kids (Oops! Did I say that out loud?!). It has been really important for my sanity.  Like really important.  I can play music as loud as I want, or not, and I can just be in my creative space- with all of my supplies.  It’s been a total life saver.

Some really big changes have happened due to the quarantine as well.  I’ll tell you all about them in a later post (when I’m ready to reveal everything!).  Speaking of REVEAL…. I can’t wait to show you my French Provincial cabinet I just finished!!

But first- my DIY Paint color of the month is Prom Queen!!!

Isn’t it sooooo pretty?  I am honestly obsessed with this color.  It is light and fancy, yet down to earth at the same time.  It blends with most DIY colors like a dream, and seriously looks so good all on its own!

Check it out on this gorgeous buffet I painted awhile back.

This cute little piece is in Prom Queen with White Wax on top.

Okay, okay.  Enough with waiting already!  Are you ready for the BIG REVEAL?

Here she is!!! I love how she turned out.  The combination of colors is so dreamy, it reminds me of a blue sky on a partly cloudy day.

First and foremost, I just got my new transfers in from ReDesign and I knew exactly which transfer I was grabbing and which piece I would use it on.

This is called “Blossom Flight“.  Isn’t it spectacular? (Well you know, I do love me some birds 🐦 ).
