I'm hoping in the next 40 days to work on my f o r g i v e n e s s issues. Not a lot, just enough. I'm also hoping to complete and post a project a day. Seems ambitious, but when I work it feels prayerful, and I can always use more of that.
Here is today's offering as a before. Not bad, but, this piece really wanted a makeover.
It's a really well built piece and had only surface scratches on top.
The new color is a sapphire and is a color I used on my tool box for the cover of my blog. This picture is not a true representation. It is magnificent.
It distressed nicely and luckily had good character lines.
The hardware was in mint condition, but I think I will oil it just for a richer caste.
This will be posted on Craigslist. [No longer available]
I found a bench for the waterfall vanity and just refinished it to match - even though someone already snatched it up. [More on that later]
Here is the before:
Very good shape, but old plastic-y covering, actually part of a sewing machine combo.
I went through the same process of colors so it would look the same distressed.
One of my JA fabric remnants worked really well for the upholstery.
Not a very good close-up. Could use a photography class.
Still the Tiffany box look. [No longer available]
This really counts as two projects today, so I could skip tomorrow. I hear it is some sort of a holiday where you overspend. I'm betting they are going to be disappointed whatever they get, so get restored furniture instead. At least one of us will be happy<3!
