I am dying for spring around here.
If it snows one more time I will find some one to blame and hang them upside down from their toenails!
Please, please no more snow!
I made another piece of furniture to sale. This time I brought out the spray paint.
No it isn't warm enough to be spray painting. I opened the garage door just for ventilation (although I go to use my mask that I got for Christmas! Thanks mom!) as soon as I was done spraying I closed the door and put the heater on high right in front of it.
It worked! But I am so ready for warmer weather.
Since I have been longing for spring I only saw this table in a spring green color.
I just couldn't resist.
Here is what the cabinet looked like before.
The previous owners spray painted it a flat brown color. They had primed it too...yeah less work for me.
I just sanded it down and used leafy green rustoleum spray paint right one top of the brown.
There was no way I was going to stripe all that paint!
Here is the finished product!
Doesn't this just scream Spring?!
I distressed the piece just a little bit on the edges.
I love how you can see all the layers where it was distressed. You can see the wood and the primer and the brown from the previous owners.
Makes the piece feel so much older then it really is.
Then of course the white knobs! Love you Hobby Lobby and your half off knobs!
Apparently there is another fellow Chicagoan that is screaming for spring too because within an hour of putting this girl on Craigslist, she was sold!
Yay! now I can finish the second settee!
