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…

Buttermilk Bread Recipe

I love this Buttermilk Bread Recipe!  My great aunt taught me how to make this bread years ago.  This is my go to bread for BLT, Bread cubes, and Thanksgiving dressing.  The bread has a firm texture and holds up well for sandwiches.  It is not a sweet bread like some roll recipes, but can be made into dinner rolls.  You can also add grains to the bread to make it multi-grain.   You will love this bread and your family will too.  Plan on about three  hours to make this bread, although you are not in the kitchen the total 3 hours, but you will need to stay at home for three hours for rising and baking time.
