Goat Hill Weekend

We survived Goat Hill Fair this past weekend!  We were talking about making t-shirts that said that after the school bus carrying a load of people to Goat Hill tipped over on Sunday.  Luckily, the bus driver was just turning around and was going very slowly when the tires sunk into the mud and the bus tipped gently on its side.   

It was a gorgeous view across a golden meadow, complete with a herd of goats set against a backdrop of redwoods.

I loved the turquoise and red, vintage trailer with furniture painted to match.

As I walked around the fair, I recognized many Annie Sloan Chalk Painted pieces, including this lovely cabinet in Coco and Old White.

I wanted to buy this authentic, vintage, zebra rug!

The tiniest Goat Hill shopper.  What a cutie!

Follow me to the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Booth!

It was a hot weekend and we really appreciated being one of the few spaces in full shade all day.  We were located on the front porch of the farmhouse and around the front yard, under generous, shade trees.

We had a steady flow of people coming through our booth all day and even the men were inquiring about the Chalk Paint (I think they wanted to hang out in the shade).

Nancy and I got to bring some of our Chalk Painted pieces of furniture from Loot to Goat Hill and stage them on the front porch.  I was so busy getting ready for the fair, that I did not have time to share the before and after pictures of most of the pieces I brought to Goat Hill.  I will be sharing those with you soon...

Vicki, Our Annie Sloan Chalk Paint stockist, drove all the way up from Clovis an set up a beautiful Chalk Paint display and helped us sell the paint.

Many people coming through our booth thought that Chalk Paint is only used for making chalk boards.  We had to explain that, while all the colors can be used as chalk boards, there are many unique finishes that can be created with the Amazing, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

Chalk paint can even be used on fabrics.  Nancy had four of these vintage, folding, industrial stools that were covered in old, white canvas.  She painted them in stripes of French Linen and Paris Gray.  Then she used my stencil, I had cut out so long ago for this galvanized bucket.  These darling stools sold right away and later, I saw two of them for sale in another vendor's booth.  

Vicki did a Chalk Paint demo in our booth with this awesome, Union Jack table painted with Coco, Old White and Paris Gray.

I brought an ornate, gold frame that I rescued from a dumpster at my local thrift shop.  

I painted the base coat with Graphite and then dry brushed Emile over that.  Then I clear and dark waxed the frame.  For the final touch, I used some of Vicki's gold, gilding wax to highlight the raised details.
