Updated Giveaway and a happy mistake


First of all I am sure that most of you have heard some buzz about blogger being all messed up over the last week.

In that little mess up a lot but not all of the comments that were left on my giveaway were lost and never to be found again.

What to do, what to do.

The only thing I can come up with is for everyone to go back to the giveaway here leave another comment (but check to see if your comment was one of the few that was left) and then I will announce the winner this friday...that is unless blogger decides to go crazy again.

So go on back to the old post and leave up to 3 comments to win your own tube of Rose Polish to get your beautiful radiant skin back, organically.



Now onto showing you what my happy mistake was.

I got this beauty a little while back.






Well actually the whole thing was oak but I started priming and then realized I needed to take a before picture.


I had this vision of making this a bold yellow. The lines are kind of modern and I thought a bold color would be fun.


Kind of like the feel of these.

 


Unfortunately the color wasn't a bold modern yellow but more like a country light yellow. Very sad. 

So I decided to just paint over the yellow with my new fav cloudburst






Then a great thing happened when I went to distressed the edges just a tiny bit the yellow showed through and I just love it!


Sometimes mistakes can be turn out to be ok. 

Who knew?!

I am linking to these parties.
