Volkswagen Mini BEEP and Hippie Paint Brush Fun

Y’all ready for this? Last week in my antique side table post I mentioned being in a contest this week with four other bloggers. The challenge was to take a set of my favorite Zibra paint brushes and give them and artistic vibe in my choosing. The winner of the contest gets $350 (yep, oodles of smackers!!). Do you think I can do it? With your  help I can. (giveaway for you too!) Here are the brushes I was sent:

Inside, this is what you see: the boxed set of the project brushes, whereas the bag of brushes contain some newly created brushes that haven’t hit the market yet. So, that will be fun to give them a test run.

BEEP II Auction and Redeeming Furniture Giveaway

Are you ready to get this party started? I am!

If you’re just joining in, let me catch you up to speed. I have a thang for Volkswagen stuff, and have found a niche in creating VW buses out of Art Deco waterfall chests. Because my first BEEP was such a hit, I have decided to auction off BEEP II (full details on my work HERE) with the proceeds going to Samaritan’s Purse, a disaster and medical relief organization dedicated to spreading the word of God while providing so much more.

Volkswagen Bus Chest – BEEP Christmas Version

Exciting things are about to happen! I have been waiting for this day for such a long time. I have also been praying that this would as much of a blessing to you as it is to me. Before I get to my announcement, I would like to show you my latest project. Back in August I created BEEP – my garage sale freebie turned Volkswagen Bus.

Little did I know how BEEP would make such waves in the internet world and be showcased in blogs around the globe. It’s been an exciting ride! He’s been going viral again thanks to some new features by enormous businesses that I believe were not coincidental, but providential.

Here’s why….enter in a second Art Deco waterfall chest of drawers found on Craigslist.

My Modern Masters Treasure – Check out what I won!

A couple of posts ago, I mentioned that I was having a really good January.  One of those reasons was because I won the $250 prize package from Modern Masters as their 5000th fan on Facebook!

Seriously, my kids thought I was crazy when I read the email telling me I won…Ha!
I owe a huge thanks to DeDe at Designed Decor because she invited me to come check out her blog.  When I visited I not only liked what I saw, but she was also having a Modern Masters giveaway, which required “liking” Modern Masters on Facebook.  Bingo!!  Thank you, DeDe!
Now, what better prize to win when you’re a person that LOVES to paint, especially furniture?!
Dare I say, that when my package came I was like a kid in a candy store?

When you’re given the opportunity to pick out $250 worth of paints, it’s quite an overwhelming feeling and making the choices was pretty hard.  
But…here’s what I decided on.

The only problem I have now is figuring what to paint first in my stash.  Stay tuned and you’ll see some projects soon!
As cool as these paints are and with all the gorgeous colors to choose from, including the topcoats, they carry a product that is on my must-try list…Metal Effects Reactive paint.

You can take anything and paint it with their specially formulated paint, and make it look like aged metal with a patina and all!  Their secret is the activator that is used once your project is painted.  It takes the metal in the paint and ages it right before your eyes!
I can’t wait to give it a try.  Check it out here.
Well, I’m happy as a lark and fully stocked with some awesome paints and colors and ready for spring to begin and inspire me all the more. 
Thank you again, Modern Masters!
