Taking a Break

I want to thank everyone who came to my painting presentation on Thursday night. It went very well I thought, and I hope everyone felt they got some good information.

I know I told you there would be a new post once a week but, if you read my left side information we were trying to sell our house in Florida.....Good news we have a contract! yay So for the next 3 weeks I will be in Florida getting the house ready to move to Atlanta.

So please take a look back at some of the previous projects and enjoy.

I thank everyone for their support and kind words.

Will be back in a few weeks.

What to do with the old TV cabinet?

We had this piece on the floor for quite some time. It held a TV of course. The first thing we did to it was get a thin piece of wood to cover the cut out in the back of the cabinet. Then added a shelf so it could be used for storage. It holds a lot of stuff. But it didn't sell.....

so we decided to paint it. We painted it a stately black and put it back out on the floor. But it still didn't sell........ hmmmm so.............

We painted it again after all it is just paint, this time it was painted a taupe on the case and a lighter taupe on the panels of the doors. Then we added stencils in taupe, off white and tan.

Then we distressed it, which made the black show through and the oak color of the original piece

We shall see what happens this time around. I will keep you posted.

Ornate Coffee Table

This poor coffee table sat on the floor for over 4 months. No one wanted it. We painted it off white and distressed it by hand.

Then put a nice glaze on it and wax. Looks quite smashing!
Hard to believe it is the same piece.
