Here She is!! The desk that meant helping my girls clean their room for 4 hours, a migraine and a whole lot of fun!
Remember my Goodwill haul last week. Well you know how impatient I am. Even though it was absolutely freezing out, I went out to the garage and painted her. I wanted her to match the girls other furniture so I went with just a straight up white. It was very start and the girls other dressers were a bit more "aged" but I knew once I waxed her she would tone down a little.
and here she is all ready to be painted sitting in my living room.
Here she is getting drawn on. I was drawing a blossom on her. It doesn't show up that great in the pictures...
and here I am starting to put paint down. Look by my foot and you will kind of see what I was going for. I got these plastic plates at goodwill too, and I didn't need them for anything, but I loved the flower on them and knew I wanted to paint them on something. So I used the plate as a reference. You will also notice me painting by lamplight. I would like to say this is some artsy fartsy thing, but alas its just lazy me not wanting to get up and turn on a bunch of lights. (I yell at my kids for reading in the dark, but I paint in the dark all the time.)
Here is one of the first coats
getting closer...you can see my reference plate......:)
and here she is.....in all her glory in my girls room. I even got a shot of the desk with my birch painting that I did for my girls last Christmas. Thanks for stopping by and have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!
