Shabby Chic off Cypress Creek

Gadora is transforming a drop-leaf table and 6 chairs in the style of Rachel Ashwell. Armed with inspiration images and paint chips, The Client and I agree on this finish. The Paiger and I roll down Cypress Creek with everything stuffed in her backside, and spilling into the front seat. I’m still so mesmerized at how she hauls.

Six chairs (with seats removed) have gone, in two days, from this:

Heading out to apply the top coat, they’ll need a day of setting before Gadora begins making them shabby (…totally the fun part)! Austin’s weather has been most cooperative. While it’s hot outside, there’s a cool breeze swelling all around and sometimes it whips a smile right on my face. Gadora is getting after it.
