My friend Marian is a fabulous artist, in her past life she worked as a decorative finisher for many years. But now that the last child is off to college she has retired from that and is going back to her true passion painting, art, crafts and furniture.
These are a few of her before and after pieces and they are spectacular. This coffee table was purchased at a garage sale, it has been painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, and then hand lettered using an image from The Graphics Fairy, then distressed and rubbed with wax. I think it turned out fabulous! What do you think?

This little tray is very cool too, but I do not have a before photo. The same steps were involved, a little chalk paint, hand lettering and then a bit of distressing. I would love to have my morning cocoa served on this little tray.
All of Marians pieces are sold at:
Ruby Slipper Designs
Cypress Point Antique Mall
928 Diamond Springs Road Suite 122

I am posting these here because although Marian has a blog she does not keep it up to date and I want her fabulous projects to be seen (with her permission of course). Marian sent me a few more before and after photos, one is of a little side table and it is spectacular. I will post that tomorrow.
I have linked this some of the following parties:
