SO, while the rain was at bay and I had my aqua paint out the other day after I painted the ball and clawfoot table . . . I just KEPT painting!
This little table was a bit dry and cracked on the top, so I did have to sand quite a bit.
And the wood that I sanded down to was quite soft and very porous, so I did give the top a coat of KILZ primer before painting. (I usually paint on primer OR sand; seldom do both on the same project)
This little lovely is now for sale in by booth at CURIOSITIES in Beaverton for $19.00.
I had actually STARTED painting this one a few weeks ago. VERY labor intensive with the three shelves and having to reach in and around the legs on each layer. And since I had to use a brush instead of roller to paint this piece, it took 3 coats to get good coverage.
After spending that much time and effort painting, I almost didn’t want to sand any of that paint off!!! But it ‘begged to be distressed’; and so it was.
A quick coat of varnish on the top and she was ready to join the others in my booth at Curiosities.
She’s sporting a $59.00 price tag.
Michael is responsible for finding and dragging home this sweet cain seat chair. All she needed was some paint and she was ready to join the others.
She can be all yours for just $39.00.
And NOW that I finally have some furniture in my signature blue color in my booth at Curiosities; it’s really starting to look like MY booth.
