I've Been Busy.....

Most recently, I spoke at The Luncheon Of Hope in my home town of Sudbury,Ontario with my sister, Lori, who is also a breast cancer survivor.  We were diagnosed within one year of one another with 2 very different types of breast cancer and two different stages.  It was an amazing experience and we were honored to be a part of this annual luncheon which raised $48,000.

Today, it was overcast in Pittsburgh so I decided to paint my dining room my dining room!!!!

I chose my favorite chalk paint recipe which involves mixing 2 tablespoons of Plaster of Paris and 1 cup of paint and voila, you have an affordable chalk paint.  I chose my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Old White substitute by Behr - Polished Pearl and this is what my sideboard with the doors removed looks like so far....and yes, I've left everything in it!

So, now I just have to choose my top coat color and these are the Behr Annie Sloan Chalk Paint substitute colors I am considering.

ASCP Versailles - Behr Outback
ASCP Country Gray - Behr Baja
ASCP Old Ochre - Behr Pecan Sandie
ASCP Paris Grey - Behr Sparrow
ASCP Duck Egg Blue - Behr Gray Morning

Let me know what you think.....

  1. I see you posted this awhile what did you end up by doing? I'm considering the Paris Grey for a project. I HATE buying expensive paint...
