DIY Chalk Paint Pure White Armoire

Normally, Serve it up Sassy serves up tasty edible recipes and gorgeous tablescapes; this week I am serving up a different recipe, a painted furniture piece using Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan.  The color that was used for this beautiful piece was Pure White. I can’t wait to share this project with you!  The ornately styled armoire has a large base with many drawers and a heavy hutch top with a center mirror and side mirrored shelves.  Painting the piece white really made the details of the piece pop out. The original color for this armoire was a deep mahogany. We are so glad it was painted white.  Many times people are afraid of painting over deep dark stains, but sometimes you just need to bite the bullet and do it. So glad we did.  Check it out…

Accordion Pleated Paper Flower Tutorial

This Accordion Pleated Paper Flower Tutorial will help you create a blooming party this summer!   These 9 inch round flowers are easy to make and are stunning when grouped together on a wall or in individual flower pots.  These flowers were made and displayed in the windows of the Bristol Olive Oil Company in Bristol Virginia.   The large paper flower is constructed with  card stock scrap-booking paper in 4 quadrants and glued together, then attached to a dowel rod.  The lime green leaves were cut to size and attached to the dowel with green floral tape.  These cute blooming beauties were potted in bright yellow and white polka-dot flower pots.  Styrofoam and green moss kept the flowers upright and secure in the flower pots.

Neon Faux Pleated Pillow Tutorial

Neon Faux Pleated Pillow tutorial was  inspired by a quilting blogger, Vanessa Christianson, with V and Co.  She made a faux pleated pillow in the mono chromatic fabrics using a Jelly Roll from Fat Quarters.    I am going to refer you to her blog site for great instructions, the only thing I did differently was the color selection of the jelly roll fabrics.  For my pillow, I used 25 colors for this pillow front but followed her layout and sewing instructions.   I loved this pillow so much  I made two, and will make more but in different fabric color combinations.   Thank you Vanessa for sharing this great pillow idea.
