Hello my friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine quite frankly … sucked. Topher and I painted the unnamed child’s bedroom furniture all weekend long. Now you’re probably saying to yourself why is this a big deal, you paint furniture all of the time?
Here is the difference: the kid wants all of her furniture white instead of black, and to me just painting plain jane white on piece after piece is booorrring; second she wants more of a smooth factory finish on it, which means it has to be sprayed, which would be fine if it weren’t 100 degrees outside. Last, her furniture is giant.
Why don’t we just wait until it cools down in a few days? Well we live in Kansas, so it could be this hot into October.
Also the kid wants to move into an apartment yesterday, and as soon as she has enough money saved she is out of here and wants some nicely made-over furniture to take with her.
So it was one long, hot weekend for us.
On to a piece I did enjoy doing.
My parents picked-up this little nightstand for me for $10 at and estate sale.
It was in seriously rough shape but the bones were good, so I decided to dry brush it to give it a really aged, rough look.
I used Plaster Paint in Seaside and Sweet Cream for the center inset.
I spray-painted the handles with Rust-Oleum’s Pure Gold and coated it in Plaster Paint’s Paste Wax.
I think it looks a lot better now!
This piece is headed down to my booth!
