We had a couple more partially dry days and I was able to finish up all the white projects that I started.
Very water damaged little square table went from this . . .
Since I have two square tables that are about the same size, but very different styles, I decided to stencil a design on top of this one. After painting the table and sanding it to distress; I stenciled on the design and once dry sanded some MORE to distress the stencil. Quick coat of *varnish and done!
*I typically only varnish the TOP of tables, dressers etc to protect them from damage from use. The legs, drawers, sides etc are left unvarnished so that they will naturally distress more with age.
Well I guess I forgot to take an after picture of JUST the chair, so this’ll have to do. I’m on the hunt for an inexpensive round foam cushion to cover and add to the seat, but I’ll take it in ‘as is’ for the time being.
White paint and some distressing give it a bit more personality. I ‘considered’ adding some kind of design to the top, but figured it will probably actually get USED as a step stool, and the design would wear off too quickly.
Michael attached the desk top to this rusty old set of legs he had. ( I spray painted the legs with a clear coat before he attached them, this keeps them from rusting more AND shedding rust on the carpet.
OOPS! Looks like I forgot the BEFORE picture for this one. sigh. I just get SO excited when we have a dry day, I kind of go into a ‘painting frenzy’! hehe. This was originally dark brown.
As much as I LOVE my signature ‘beachy blue’ paint color, every so often I feel the needs to ‘cleanse my palette’ and do something different. Will be changing over my booth at Stars to predominately WHITE sometime next week. In order to make ROOM for all this white stuff, I may need to pull out some of the existing product. Depends upon how busy it was for the four day Expo sale at Stars.
REMEMBER ~ALL REGULAR PRICED ITEMS IN MY BOOTH AT STARS ARE STILL HALF OFF UNTIL CLOSING ON SUNDAY @ 6PM
AND EVERYTHING (including already reduced items) IN MY BOOTH AT CURIOSITIES IS HALF OFF UNTIL THE END OF MARCH, AT WHICH TIME I WILL BE VACATING MY SPACE.
And if I have to pull some old stuff from Stars to make room for the new white stuff, I’ll be stocking that stuff at Curiosities. So even though I am in ‘clearance mode’ for moving out, I will be adding MORE inventory as things sell down!
