Making it pretty with Fusion Mineral Paint

Fusion Mineral Paint display

What an exciting day! Most of my renovations are done at my shop and now the real fun is beginning! Now it's time to make up some cute displays. 

The walls in this area of my shop are painted with Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black. This wall will be used as a chalkboard wall. Yes, Fusion works wonderfully as chalkboard paint and you have 31 colours to choose from. Just use a damp rag to wipe off the chalk. The bonus is it does not stink like regular chalkboard paint and it is way easier to work with. I used a small roller to paint my walls. I have messed around with chalk on it, but I have to practice more before I can show you pictures. Writing large is much harder than I thought!

The little piano bench is painted in Fusion Fort York Red and the little thing to the right of it is also painted in Coal Black. (Perhaps a cigar stand of some sort?)

I painted all these super adorable wooden spools in all 31 Fusion colours.

Calligraphy knobs on antique pump organ

I don't know about you guys, but sometimes I made purchases for ridiculous reasons. I bought my antique pump organ because I was in love with the knobs on it! I don't want to sound totally unreasonable, so I want to mention that I only paid $199 for it.

My organ still works, although it is one heck of a workout to pump the foot pedals. But just the same, the pedals are beautiful. Hmm. "My organ still works" ... that just sounds funny. Of course my organ(s) still work or I wouldn't be here typing right now. I know, bad sense of humour, but that's what happens when I write blog posts late at night. I get silly.
