Distressing Furniture with Junk Monkey Paint

Junk Monkey Paint:  DIY Chalk Paint

A friend of mine repeatedly encouraged me to go visit a local shop, Sonia’s Shabby Chic, in our town.   A new brand of paint with a fun name -Junk Monkey-, was waiting for me to try.  I love to transform a piece of furniture by distressing it with chalk paint so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.  es of stopping in someday.

Finally, the stars aligned and I was able to drop into the shop.  The owner makes her own chalk paint and  Junk Money is the talk of the town.

Homemade Chalk Paint

I purchased a jar to see how it compared to other Chalk Paint that I use while painting furniture.  I like the simplicity of paint being sold and stored in a mason jar.  It was $7.00 which I thought was very reasonable. It also was available close to my home and in a variety of colors.

Finding a great table among her treasures was the perfect addition to my office.  With a new jar of paint and a piece of furniture that needed a makeover, I was ready to tackle another DIY project.

I like to paint furniture and I love the distressed look.  I’m not a fan of natural wood surfaces so I try to find furniture pieces that have good bones.  I also look for pieces that will look even better with a bit of creative elbow grease.

This table was fine; it just didn’t fit my style or home decor.  I loved the table.  It has three sides that fold down independently.   It is very versatile and a fun piece.

Using chalk paint (homemade or store bought) over latex paint.

  1. You will not have to prep your furniture (no sanding required)
  2. You don’t need a primer. Two coats of chalk paint and a coat of wax will do the trick!
  3. The fumes are typically less than traditional paint unless you used latex paint in your homemade chalk paint which I’ve seen in some recipes.
  4. It dries much quicker.   Most projects are normally dry and ready within 2 hours.

I used the left over Annie Sloan Chalk Paint that I painted my piano with (which you can read about here) as the base of this project.  I knew I wanted a French-inspired look in the office and this shade is perfect to achieve that look.

Junk Monkey Paint is the second layer of paint that gives it the distressed look.  Using two similar colors in the same color palette is a great technique for distressing a piece of furniture.

There are several different ways to distress furniture:

  1. You can add another shade of color to a drying coat of paint in patches.  I did this with this table.
  2. You can paint a surface one shade as a base coat and another shade as a top coat then use sandpaper to rub off a layer in specific spots to look worn.
  3. You can paint a surface with one color then go back and add another shade of color to specific edges or spots.  I did this when I painted my dining room hutch.
  4. You can use castor oil under your base coat in areas then as you paint the surface the paint will crackle.  This is a technique that I used when painting my headboard with Milk Paint.

I like this style of distressing furniture and Junk Monkey Paint was perfect for this project.

The distressed look isn’t for everyone and it doesn’t fit some home decors but it is fun to try if you love DIY projects.  Grab yourself an old piece of furniture that you don’t care about and send me a picture of your before and after project.

 Women of the Sea-Mermaids: What is your spin on their existence?

What is your spin on mermaids? Most of our planet Earth is covered in water in many shades of green, blue, silver, and muddy brown. It is a little wonder that for centuries the oceans and seas were believed to hide mysterious creatures including mermaids. Could mermaids actually be real? Historical eyewitnesses have claimed to see mermaids including Christopher Columbu Mermaid Signs off the shores of Haiti during the 1400’s. He said she was ugly. Mermaid sightings even document back to the Roman Emperor Augustus in (63 BC). With historical documentation about the validity of mermaids existing could these mystical beauties be real?  Are you a doubter? Ask yourself one question. With 95% of the oceans having never been explored could mermaids be swimming in the dark seas? A doubter or not, here are 12 amazing facts about mermaids found on the Visually Website.

  1. The earliest mermaid legends come from Syria
  2. Sea Cows (Manatees) were often mistaken for mermaids
  3. The four powers of a mermaid are: immortality, seeing the future, telepathy and hypnosis.
  4. There are four types of mermaids: Traditional, Irish Shedding, Shape Shifters and Merfolk.
  5. The gem Aquamarine is made from mermaid tears
  6. The word mermaid means “Woman of the Sea.”
  7. Mermaids are featured in over 16 movies.
  8. Mermen came first.
  9. A mermaid’s kiss will give you gills.
  10. Mermaid’s can’t sing well at all.
  11. The most expensive mermaid tail cost over $10 grand.
  12. The color of a mermaid’s tail depicts her mood. It is her personality.

As a kid I was fascinated with mermaids. I thought they were beautiful. I thought they were smart. I wished I could swim like a mermaid. During a class I took in high school titled American Heritage our honors class read The Odyssey written by Homer. Sirens, mythical creatures, lurked on an island Odysseus sailed by. My teen brain  spent hours with my nose among the book’s pages believing they were mermaids.. Sirens were believed to combine women and birds in various ways. In early Greek art, Sirens were represented as birds with large women’s heads, bird feathers and scaly feet.  Birds were chosen because of their beautiful voices. Later Sirens were sometimes depicted as beautiful women, whose bodies, not only their voices, are seductive .Sirens lured sailors to their death with their beautiful voices and music by crashing  boats on the jagged rocks of their island. Take note, Sirens are not mermaids. I was a happy camper when I figured out this fact. Here I am decades later still amazed by mermaids. What captured my attention as a young child was the idea they were strong in the sense of knowing they could do or be anything they wanted to be. Hey, the Little Mermaid from Disney boosted many young girl’s self-esteem to go after what they wanted. Today I think the concept of going after dreams nonstop is important. Don’t let challenges become bigger than dreams.

Over the weekend I bought a mermaid stencil. It called to me from the shelf of many stencils. I created a vertical sign from an old cupboard door with paint from Junk Monkey Paint Company in the colors of Teal River, Sunshine Yellow, and Mermaid Tail. A paintbrush dip of Black Velvet finished off the design. I stopped and thought for a few hours what quote I wanted to put at the top of the sign. It had to be beautiful of course. It has to be strong. It had to have personality. I felt the saying I chose had to speak truth to the young girl who would become the future owner of my sign. I pulled out a book of transfers from Chalk Couture and flipped the pages. Perfect. I knew the quote instantly to use: “She believed she could and she did.”  Believing we have the ability to do what sits in our heart and soul is beautiful, strong, and defines personality inside and outside of the body. I will never doubt it and quite possibly that makes me a mermaid.

And immediately put her hand on her pussy again, caressing her clitoris. Natasha seems to have completely lost touch with reality, reclining on a bench with her legs wide apart, closing her eyes, breathing deeply and biting her lip. I continued to caress her, then the clitoris, then inserting my fingers into her pussy.

Feelings are amazing.
