Hello Blog Friends! :) I am not one to make excuses for not posting regularly but I do recognize that I am slacking in that area, however, for good reason. Let me share some projects that I have completed that have been keeping me from sitting down to write a post.
The above picture is an 80's style pine bench that opens. If you look past the color and toll painting accent - it is a really great piece for a foyer or to use as a coffee table. I used dark walnut stain and white paint to bring it's style into the 21st century.
I covered it in my own white chalk paint on a beautiful sunny day outside on my driveway. I went inside for about 5 minutes and during that time a heavy rain storm creeped in and ruined my white paint! Ugh...Several sanding and paint sessions later - I was finally done with it. What is funny about it is that it sold first thing the morning I took it to my shop space. (The shop owner bought it!) :)
I actually moved this desk into Luke's room. I didn't sand it before painting it in chalk paint and I noticed that the finish was chipping off pretty easily. I ended up sanding down the top and staining it. I like stained tops on most furniture pieces (if you hadn't noticed).
Well, that is what I have been up to.
Hope all is well with you and please come back next time! :)
