Happy Hump Day everyone!
It’s a pretty gloomy, rainy day here, but I planned on staying inside to paint anyway.
I’m going to put a roast on the stove and stay in my comfy painting sweats — and may even take a few snuggle breaks with the pups now and then.
I’ve been starting to bring my laptop into my studio while I work, and I have been watching some movies on Netflix. I don’t spend a lot of time picking them out, so I have just been randomly clicking on movies and hoping for the best.
Let me tell you … there are a lot of terrible movies out there, and I have seen three of them in just the past week. If you ever think about watching Rachael Getting Married, Best Man Down or The Kids Are All Right, I have three words for you: Don’t Do It. They were absolutely terrible. In fact Rachael Getting Married (an Anne Hathaway movie) is one of the worst I have ever seen. I actually shut it off halfway through it, and I NEVER do that.
Just thought I would save you from the 2 hours you will never get back.
Today I’m trying to finish up a few new projects to take down to my furniture booth tonight, so it doesn’t look so naked.
One of the pieces I just finished was this antique side table.
It was in rough shape. The legs wobbled, it was scratched up, and it had a flower decal on the top that was half missing.
I cleaned the piece up, and Topher tightened up the legs. I painted it with a combination of Seaside and Cottage Blue Plaster Paint, and on the top I used Sweet Cream.
Once it dried, I distressed the whole piece. Then I stenciled on the word Paris on the top (along with some decorative scroll and a crown) and then distressed that.
I then coated it with Plaster Paint’s Paste Wax and then buffed it off.
