Chalkboard Armoire and A Tiger

Welcome to RustiChic, which is currently transitioning to This, That & LIFE! Please "Like" the new facebook page to stay up to date on all the changes and the most recent content including Furniture and the Beach House before and afters. You can also find me on Twitter and Pinterest. Glad to have you today!


What is it about 3 years old? Seriously.......It's like this magical number
that brings upon pre-3-year-old-picture-destruction.

Exhibit A:

If you are laughing....
1. It's NOT funny!!! (of course it is) ;-)
2. It gets worse.....

He knew he was Busted with a capital B.

"But I a Tiger mommy"...he tells me so innocently.

"Well, that wouldn't be so bad, IF....

.....it were not THE DAY of your
3 year old Birthday pictures!"
I say in (possibly) a calm, cool voice.

Forget that!!!!!
It was more like hands on the head,
texting my sister (photographer) pictures, saying,

Somehow (baby wipes and hand soap) we managed to get all
of the ink off of the arms, legs, calves, toes, elbows and forehead.

My second child cut her bangs before her 3 three old picts.
What's the deal anyway? Oh life... ;-)

As for a Beach House update, we FINALLY picked an
interior color that actually goes with the trim and doors as
shown above. I have a complete new found
respect for whites and beiges, because they definitely are
NOT all the same, and play an very important role in making
some homes work (like ours).

It even has the perfect name...
Powder Sand by Behr.
Now I feel like it's all downhill from here on out!


In the meantime, I was able to finish up this armoire
that's been hanging out in my
"In The Works" box!

TV Armoire in unwaxed ACSP and the black panels are chalkboard paint!
Can wax seal for additional charge. Unwaxed will allow for natural distressing.
 The doors open and slide into the armoire, and
it comes equipped with two outlet plugs.

$275 cash

Dimensions are: 42" wide (at top) x 76" high x 22.15" deep (at top) 
contact me for arrangements 
 through fb or at rustichic@gmail.com


Last, but not least!

I am off to The Farm Chicks Show in Spokane, WA.
This is my first time going and I am SO excited!!!
Also, because my amazing sister is coming with
me for a fun sister weekend!

Then home for a day and off again to Vegas with the hubby and
some friends to have some fun & relaxation.

See you soon!
