It's been a busy summer and I haven't done much blogging. But here's another quicky update on my latest projects
This reproduction secretary was pretty dated and though it was not solid wood, I decided it had great lines and could be really pretty.
Single Pie Safe
I used a combination of chalk paint and milk paint on this girly pie save. It's so sweet, I just love how it turned out!
Chippendale Style Bench
Before........boring, and blah!
This bench was a makeover of horrific proportions. The initial painting failed so I had to strip it back to bare wood and start over. That was not a fun task on this scrolly, extensively carved piece. Not a mistake I will quickly make again!! But, I must say that after all of that, it turned out so beautiful and elegant that the pictures couldn't even do it justice. I had also recovered the seat with drop cloth fabric that I transferred a french graphic onto using a laser printout and citrisolv. I've posted the graphic below for your use and convenience, but go to www.graphicsfairy.blogspot.com for more great graphics.
This piece is still available at the Where on Earth did you Get That Antique Market in Airdrie.
