Christmas at The Maine Country Home

The store has been decorated for Christmas since the day before Thanksgiving, but some how the Maine Country Home guest house was not quite on that timeline. This weekend I found myself feeling like the cobbler’s children, so I got to work on our house.

I made two pillows from Annie Sloan’s French Hen fabric, one pillow with a french transfer, and decorated a basket with greens. When I went to take the picture of the pillows I thought something was missing.

What if there was a little red table sitting between the chairs? I had an old mahogany table sitting in the furniture barn, and that seemed like it would do the trick.

Using my ultra fast Annie Sloan paint brush, I whipped on two coats of Emperor’s Silk and this morning gave it a quick wax in Clear and Dark. I also added a little bit of Renaissance Gold Gilding Wax rubbed with a dark wax cloth to the cute little claw feet. Just to add a touch of glam.

Voila, Christmas in the guest house. But next year I will get to decorated for Christmas in the new, not so small house. And that will take a little longer than one day!
