Focused on getting this piece out of the back workroom Friday –
Did you catch or 3rd episode on DIY TV? You’ll be able to see HOW I added that embedded stenciling on the buffet above. Find the link in our How-To Videos category.
I love these old pieces that bow out in front. I altered my metallic finish a little, this time using multiple shades of glaze (black, brown and grey). It will be for purchase but has not been priced yet.
Completed this foyer table this week as well.
The intent was to sand and stain the top, and paint the legs light, but the legs bled horribly, and I wasn’t in the mood to deal with KILZ-ing, so I switched over to a metallic finish, but then I didn’t like the jazzy legs with the stained top, so I gave it a quick layer of Caromal’s Textured Basecoat Peppercorn, then proceeded to trowel multiple multiple multiple layers of decorative waxes over top –
A finish I still fret over – and one I always end with “Thank You LORD!”
We started the day with an early riser Cabinet Painting Workshop. Surprisingly, it sold out (the 9am start is not our most popular 🙂 ) . I am hoping to have the new workshop schedule completed and online this coming week.
This week we’ll work at creating and sharing pictures of American Paint Company’s new American Home Collection. The colors are lovely, and will be in full production by first of the year. We have only very small supplies of the line at this time.
Enjoy your week!
