Wow I've been out of sorts lately...I'm not sure if it's the chaos of school starting or the fact that I got a bug and have felt like crap for a week now...maybe it's just the end of summer but I haven't felt like blogging...I go to the computer but only have the energy to scroll threw Pinterest...
I have manged to get a bunch of projects done...I've been making jewelry, bags and painting furniture for the Valley Vintage Market coming up in just 10 days and I'm a bit nervous or maybe it's neurotic but I'm scared to death I wont have enough done...I have this vision of what I want it to look like but I'm running out of time. :(
Anyway this Lovely will be there....
She's by Drexel and is definitely a quality piece of furniture!!
Here's what she looked like when I found her....Her finish was beat up, but other than that she's a solid piece of furniture!
The first thing I did was sand the top...I've been wanting to do a two tone piece for a long time!
I painted the body with Miss Mustard Seeds Milk Paint (This is the first I've used it) and am very happy with the results!!!
After doing some distressing I applied a coat of wax...I use a blend of two waxes to get the color and the finish I want...
Isn't the detailing fantastic?
I painted the drawer pull in flat black to finish the look.
So what do you think?? I don't want to let it go....but I must!!
See you at the Market. :)
I will be linking up to many of parties on my side bar.
