Is your Mom a Stripper?
I overhear the greatest things when I work in my garage!
Through a half open garage door, my boys forget that I still have ears.
I had been on the phone with a friend talking about different brands of strippers, and their benefits. When I overheard this conversation between my youngest and the very knowledgeable boy down the street.
"Dude! Is your Mom a stripper?" My still sweet boy's response? "You mean, like on tables and stuff? Ya, I guess so." (I sooo love that he doesn't get it yet). I had to break in! I was afraid of where this was all headed! So I invited the two of them into the garage to "watch me strip". Whew! Crisis averted, they were pretty quickly bored and left to ride scooters.
The top was stripped with Citristrip (which I love) and stained with General Finishes Gel Stain in Java and finished with 3 coats of poly.
The body was painted with two ASCP colors. Old Ochre as the base and Old White as the top color. I love to layer colors, when distressed there is such depth and texture. This one is pretty distressed. It makes me happy!
I took this to my brand spankin new booth at As Time Goes By in Greenwood, MO. I am pretty excited about this new space, and a little nervous too. Getting things together for my space has taken the better part of the week, but I have finished 5 new pieces of furniture and lots of other goodies.
Now I need a nap.
