Well, you know the old saying . . . ‘If at first you don’t succeed, try, TRY again!’
So I grabbed the orbital sander and started sanding.
Took a break to fix dinner and eat, then decided it ‘needed something decorative’ along the head rest part.
After trying nearly every stencil and stamp that I have; and all of them being either too big or too small, I ended up with the ‘live laugh love’ stencil for the simple fact that it was the ONLY one that fit the space!
It’s weird because USUALLY stuff looks LESS distressed in pictures than it does in person. But it’s the opposite on this chair, and it looks far GRUBBIER in the photos than it does in person. Go figure?!?
For now, it’s sitting in the back of my car, will see if there is room for it in either mall space tomorrow. If not, it will go to storage until there IS room because I already filled the spot where it was.
It is most definitely MORE beat up looking in person that it looks in the pictures. But that’s why I got such a great price on it. A half hour or so of quality time with my orbital sander and this baby will be stripped of all her old scars and ready for fresh paint and a new lease on life!
