I don’t know what happened last night … I vowed I’d take pictures as the night progressed, and had my camera right on my cart.
Wanna see what I got?
I know, JUMBO LAME-O!
We ended up with a last minute roster change, one lady swapped her husband for her daughter – and another brought his wife, so ten was the final count.
Many came with a specific purpose – they came, they perused the samples, and then focused on creating exactly the finish they liked. Questions, dirty brushes just a lot to share. Paprika was popular – with 2 layers of Toner (creates a darker finish) , and Parchment – always a hit… I’d show you photos, if I had them!
By time I cleaned up I was exhausted – but wide awake. Don’t you hate that? I popped a big bowl of popcorn and ate it, brain dead. This morning I headed back to glazing trim
then a quick stop to a new client that is looking to have a display cabinet refinished. I walked into their kitchen and instantly spotted this
temporarily interrupt this post
with my own heart,
AAhhhhhhhh! Authentic old – we WORK to create this finish!
The piece was a garbage reject. It arrived all covered in blue, and the client’s husband used a stripped to get most of it off – look at what he revealed
Anyway, thankfully, that ISN’T the piece they want refinished 🙂
Back to the JUMBO LAME-O – I have gads of emails from the last two days, piling up – I promise I’ll get to each one – I just need a day or so. If you require more immediate attention, please feel free to call me on my cellphone – I can talk (bluetooth in ear) while I work.
