I have to tell you it is so exciting when you win something in blog land. Recently I was picked a winner of plaster paint on Judy's fun blog 20 North Ora you can see it here 20 North Ora. I was excited to get this paint and try it out on a few projects. I have never used the plaster paint before. I have to tell you it was pretty easy to use and I was thrilled with my two projects I finished with this paint.
I also won on Melanie's blog Sweet Melanie a beautiful pillow and runner and hand towels that I am using in my new lake guest room.

Here are some pictures of the paint and my projects I did with my win at Judy's blog.
|The paints came in some fun colors I used the Ocean Breeze blue and then I mixed the toasted marshmallow with the french ivory to make the color for my second project. Judy sent me the cute heart painted in the red with the cute embellishments.|
|The paint goes on nicely in one coat. Dries quickly and then waxing and it is a finished project.|
|Project number #1. I had this old vintage cream colored stool and I used the french blue on this piece for my new lake guest room.|
|Project number #2 was my make up vanity from my bathroom. It was white hard to tell in this picture but it was pure white and needed a new face lift. So I mixed the toasted marshmallow with the creamy french ivory and got a pretty cream color for the vanity.|
|After. I painted it and then just took a wet sponge after the paint was dry and ran it over the spots I wanted the cream to come through. Then I waxed it and let it sit over night. This project from start to finish was less than an hour.|
|There she is in all her lake blue glory. It added a little more pop of color to the room.|
|Project #2 Before|
|After. I know it does not look like a color change in these pictures but it was. It went from stark white to a creamy taupe color.|
