Look what came in the mail! These coasters are from Suzan XOX at Simply Vintageous.
She is really sweet. She shares her Montreal adventures and her painting techniques.
These pretty handmade coasters were crafted by Suzan
Hazelnut Deux. (I checked that. This Suzan is in Pennslyvannia. ) The coasters will look so perfect on my porch when it is finished. My spouse and I got engaged in Paris.
Thank you to both Suzans!
Painting the Concrete
This past weekend, my spouse painted the concrete on the back porch. He used concrete paint tinted Sherwin Williams Fawn Bridle.
First he washed the floor down really well and then he scraped it in some parts and then he waited for it to dry; these are important steps to prevent bubbles. Next, he put two coats of concrete paint on; he allowed for each paint coat to dry before adding another. He used a roller with a pole to avoid making lines.
He still has to put an epoxy on it, and he still has one set of French
doors to paint as well.
