Hi guys! How was your weekend?
Yesterday, as promised, I only worked for a few hours and then took the rest of the day off.
We went and saw The Giver which was pretty good. There were a few things they didn’t really explain at the end, but it was worth the price of admission. I even splurged and got popcorn. Topher thinks movie theater popcorn is the most disgusting stuff on the planet, and while I agree it is horrible for you, I think having it once a year won’t kill you.
I worked for days on a new coffee table, only to finish stenciling it today to find out that my stenciling went downhill … literally — it got off track and started sloping downward.
I was so mad!
So now I have to repaint half of it and start over. Total bummer.
One thing I did finish was this vintage shelf.
I got this at a yard sale, but since I was buying a bunch of other stuff, the lady threw it it for free!
It was green. Like really green, with this nasty brown dry finish on top which had to go.
I cleaned the 20 years of filth off it, and then painted two coats of Plaster Paint in Flannel all over it.
Once it dried, I distressed the whole thing, letting just a bit of the green show through.
I then coated it in Plaster Paint Paste Wax and buffed it.
