Well, it has officially been forever since my last post. First, we moved, what a nightmare. Then, there was football for the boys and broken bones, fantastic. Then basketball... and then, oh yeah, the crazy person who wrote to me after I painted a piano yellow. Seriously, I had a person who wrote a relatively threatening email about the piano in this story. Never saw that coming. Well, whatever and let's all paint pianos just to annoy the mean people.
Since my last post in September (!!!!!) I have been painting tons of furniture, yaay! Here is one of my favorites. Yes, sometimes I paint in my family room in front of the TV. At least this time I managed to grab moving box and put it under the piece!
This was a super easy and quick transformation. I didn't paint the top or the legs, I love the contrast and they were in fantastic shape, with a little teak oil they were as good as new. The body I painted with two light coats of ASCP in Florence, when it was dry, I distressed it with 220 grit sandpaper and waxed it with dark wax only. Florence is such an eye peeling color to me that I felt like skipping the clear wax first was a good choice. I kind of puffy heart love this piece! So did the lady that bought it about an hour after I brought it to Restoration Emporium!
So, what have you been up to since September (!!!!!)?
