Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend.
Unfortunately, I received some bad news that put a dark cloud over mine. I woke up Saturday morning to find out my aunt, whom I’m very close with, had been in a terrible car wreck. She has some very serious injuries, so things are touch-and-go right now. Any prayers would be greatly appreciated.
When I wasn’t at the hospital, I was working on projects to distract myself. A few weeks ago, a friend was getting rid of this hall tree and wanted to know if I would be interested in it.
I had never done a painted hall tree, so of course I accepted.
She is also the same kind lady that gave me the dresser I used for my ombre piece.
Here is the Before:
First, I taped off the mirror using Frogtape.
Next, I used two coats of light ivory paint followed by two coats of a darker ivory paint. I then distressed the entire piece — which took awhile.
Once I was finished, I used dark wax all around any of the crevices and around the detail work at the top. I then went over the entire piece with clear wax.
I replaced the white porcelain coat hooks with some bronzed ones and repainted the handle of the drawer.
I ended-up spending a few days on this, but I think it was worth it!
By the way did anyone see Miley Cyrus’s performance at the VMA’s last night? OMG! She was just nasty! She spent the whole performance rubbing all over herself and Robin Thicke. What killed me was that her mom was giving her the biggest standing ovation. Sad people, just sad.
Did you see it? What was your reaction? What performance was your favorite?
