My project is taking longer than expected.
I had hoped I would have it done days ago,
But, I ran into problems. . .
I have a real bad cold and haven't felt like working on it.
I just about ruined it!
Oh, yes! Today I have been in tears. . .
All my hard labor was just about ruined.
Remember my buffet I got a few weeks ago?
It has been sitting in my little dining area
all this time. . .
And ya, know how when you paint the whole house
is a mess? (Anyway it is for me!)
Well, I have sanded, (yes, in my house) and primed
Finally painted, 3 coats of paint
But, it just didn't look right to me. .
I wanted to put that Mocha glaze everyone is talking about, on it
But, my kids said, NO! Don't do that!
It just needed something. . . it looked to blahaaaaaa!
So I thought, well maybe if I "shabby" it. . .
Oh, good grief, that didn't work!
So I had to paint again. . . .
Then I came up with this idea of painting the decorative detail. . .
That would be just fine, if you have a real steady hand. . . .NOT ME!
So.....after all that detail work, I painted over it!
Well, this is how it is as of right now. . . . just the doors
Detail painted a creamy white. . .
I may just move it into its place and study it for a few days
Before I do anything else to it.
It still needs the poly-coat on it. . . .
And I may not listen to my kids and still Mocha it.
What do you think?
I wish Shelly at The Frosted Gardner would give me her opinion.
Or Any of you great creators in bloggerville.
You guys paint furniture all the time.
HELP me out here!
