Hello Sweet Friends I am getting there the paint has been applied yippee! but now I have to wait 3 days before I can use chalk on it.

Let me share something with you also about the paint.  I purchased mines from Home Depot for 9.99 which for the life of me I don't understand the double pack of the same 30 oz can being 24,99, now if your not a shopper pays close attention you will end up spending an extra 5 bucks.

The space I added the paint to is 5' 4 inches in length and 30 inches wide.  Using two coats I have only used less than a third of the can.  I surfed a few other places before deciding to by it from Home Depot and to my surprised Home Depot price was far more cheaper.  My next project in this tiny Studio is to paint these night stands white and add these knobs pictures below

I think this might have to wait though until spring lol you know how that goes you start on a new project and make double work for yourself that is what is going to happen when I decide to paint these night stands.  I use them to store more junk umm I mean delicious supplies for the creative artist.  I do not have the guts to open them to let you see the inside of them lol. 

Well time for me to get back to sewing and before I go let me give a Big thank you to my followers and thank you all for the wonderful comments.   Have a wonderful evening

Peace and Blessings
Snatch Joy~!
