I have completed about a dozen pieces. I am loving painting.
I even get up before I leave for work every day and put a coat of poly on something, somewhere!
My house and barn are a wreck. Newspaper, cans of paint, poly, brushes everywhere....
These are a few of my latest before and after pictures.
Here is what the piece looked like before - an ugly pine hutch that we found on craigslist.
I painted it a pretty taupey grey color, distressed it, glazed it and gave it a couple coats of poly. I changed a couple of the knobs (yes, hobby lobby), but actually thought the old ones looked better on it after, than they did before.
I think she is beautiful now.
I like her so much, I am not sure I can sell her.
But our house has no wall space. Too many windows. I have no where to put her :(
This new adventure is a lot of work.
Degloss, paint, paint again, sand, glaze, poly, sand, poly...
It takes about a week to complete a piece. But I love the results!
