not sure why but I don’t ask a lot of
questions when I am the recipient of
free or inexpensive wood.
I mixed a color wash out of a
50/50 mix of water and turquoise
acrylic craft paint.
Yes, that is a semi-clean brush from
another project, don’t judge.
I brushed the color wash on and allowed
it to dry well, just one coat. It turned out
way brighter than I anticipated but
it’s growing on me now. Next came out
the palm held power sander and I made
quite a bit of noise getting these to their
current shabby state. My neighbors are
very patient, and perhaps a bit curious
about what I actually “do”.
That’s ok, we will keep them wondering…
Now I just need to find that console table. Or
perhaps dig around in my garage and see if
there is any lonely furniture that needs to be
made into something new again.
Thank you so much for reading, I
appreciate you so very much! If it wasn’t
for you, there would be no twelve O eight
and certainly no Pretty Things party every week.
Together we can make pretty things
for less, see you tonight for last week’s
party features and a whole new party.
Pour a glass of wine and put on some rouge
ladies! It’s Monday and time to get down
with your bad self.
Hugs & blessings
