Feeling it's too late to try to catch you up on January

Ok so I KNOW I wrote in my last post that I would try to catch up on my January….. ;-( sadly I neglected to keep my word…. For some reason I have gotten out of my blogging habit heck if it matters EVEN my Facebook habit seems presently gone.
So here's to possible fresh starts…let's see I'll begin with last week instead:
King Memorial
I did a lot of sightseeing since a buddy of mine had finally come down to VA for a visit. We went into DC and had a nice day of walking around viewed some of the many monuments and were able to view the newly installed King Monument which has a nice location near the basin.  We visited Middleburg, Purceville, the Plains, Luray Caverns and on route to her Dulles flight our final visit for her was the Space Museum. So you can imagine I had a busy week sadly no art was completed.
Luray Caverns
Now sadly I am battling a sinus infection/ cold ;-(( but decided today needed to feel like an Art day.
I finally cracked open a can of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I am using it to try to refurbish a dresser from part of my husband's parents old bedroom set.  I have high hopes in this paint, after attending a mini class from Janet of : http://theemptynest-janet.blogspot.com/ 
Her class is great and thanks to her I have lots of ideas for future projects.
So here is my first Annie Sloan project so far….

2 coats on
thinking I want to paint some off white accents before I wax the piece
So sadly for now it's break time….. I think my sinus infection is getting the best of me and I need a nap.
