This Giveaway is over, but you can still enjoy some beautiful shades of green Fusion Mineral Paint.
Alexa F. from Thunder Bay, Ontario is the winner of our Giveaway #6!
My question to you was: where are you from and what's the weather like today? I must say, I was very surprised to read all of your responses! 3 years ago when I first started blogging, I really had no idea what to write. Ever. I struggled with every single blog post. I worried about my grammar, typos and most of all, I worried about content. Over the years I have discovered that the best way for me to write is to be myself. There was no sense struggling trying to be a professional writer or a gal that knows everything. Let's face it, I am neither of those.
Initially I would check the traffic on my website and it was disappointing. It's a challenge to get people to visit your website. Several months after I got started, I wrote on a huge piece of paper "She did because she believed she could" and I put it on my wall above my computer. When I felt discouraged, I read those words and I kept on taking photos and typing blog posts. I never quit. Perhaps it is my love of painting and photography that kept me going. I still have that sign on my wall.
I just finished reading comments from Canadians coast to coast. From Prince George, British Columbia to Moncton, New Brunswick. I also heard from my American painting pals from Alaska to Texas. I am truly humbled.
TODAY'S GIVEAWAY #8 IS:
A $50 gift card that can be used towards any type of paint or products - Fusion Mineral Paint, Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint or Homestead House Milk Paint. If the winner cannot visit my shop and uses the gift card on-line, their order will have free shipping so that the $50 is for paint.

Today I am sharing some wonderful shades of green Fusion Mineral Paint. Here in Northern Ontario we have been having exceptionally warm weather. These colours are so cheerful and remind me of spring!
This is a buffet table that is in my shop. Yes, I really painted only half of it. It's a great way to show everyone who stops in my shop a before and after. This poor little thing was in rough shape when I bought it. It appeared like someone had started to strip it and quit. It was time for some paint!
In many spots the veneer was missing and I decided to just go with it. I painted right over top of those areas.
I used the colour Inglenook. I think it's such a pretty colour! I decided to use Fusion Beeswax Finish on this piece. It added a slight sheen and made it soft to the touch.
Fusion Paint does not require a topcoat, but sometimes I love to wax pieces. On some surfaces, such at kitchen cabinets, a topcoat is always a good idea. For example, Fusion Tough Coat will add extra protection to kitchen cabinets.
If you want to know more about Fusion, I have an area of my website that includes tips and tutorials. There are some great videos that are worth watching!
Here are the colour names:
top: Park Bench
2nd row (right side): Inglenook
3rd row (left side): Brook
4th row (right side): Laurentien
bottom: Lily Pond
