My very kind MIL came over yesterday while she was in town and helped me paint my sewing chair!! So here is a before picture. It was given to me for free by a friend of my mom's who was cleaning house. You may remember that I made some cushions for it a while back. Anyway, my MIL and SIL have been painting up a storm and have become pros at this, so I was so glad she said she would help me!

Here is the stuff we used. It is Annie Sloan paint, wax, and not pictured is the brown stain we used at the end (right Shelley?). If you want to see someone who uses this stuff, it's amazing! Check out this blog: Miss Mustard Seed.

You will have to wait to see the final reveal! I still need to buff the chair, but everything else is done!! And in the words of my MIL, Shelley, "It looks a thousand times better!" Ha ha! It really does!

Ok and then because I am not the best planner in advance for FHE (meaning more than 10 minutes before), I decided to try a bit harder this week and decided to make some caramel apples. We had Molly help us and they turned out really yummy!

We used m&ms and a snickers bar.

Molly was a good helper!
Ali saw us unwrapping the caramels and thought we weren't sharing, so she was either eating the candy or whining that she wanted some most of the time :) We had a fun time!
