I am finally getting back into the groove of things! I still have not found all of my supplies. I am trying not to unpack everything. The plan is to buy a house sometime this year. I do not want to have to pack up my whole house again. Trying to pack with two little ones is like trying to shovel snow while it's still snowing. I put the stuff in the box, they turn around and take it out.
I still have not made it to the thrift stores here, but I found a strip mall that is nothing but small 2nd hand stores. I am keeping my fingers crossed that they hold some treasures.
I finished the 2nd end table today. I originally was going to paint it to match the other one, but after some thought, I decided that I wanted this one be light grey.
This one was a little rougher than the first. The whole top of it needed to be sanded. I have to tell you that I have become so spoiled with the whole sanding thing. I do not enjoy sanding. The only thing that I dislike more is filling holes.
Here is what it looks like now!
Normally, I paint my piece of furniture and let it sit over night before I sand and glaze. Today, I was in my groove, so I decided to glaze just an hour after I finished the second coat. I always use baby wipes when I glaze. If you have not tried them, I suggest you do!
When wiping off the glaze, today I noticed that the wipe was taking off some of the paint. Giving it that yummy chippy look! I still don't know if it was a coincidence or not, but I am gonna try it again on my next project!
I hope that you all have a great weekend! I am off to the thrift stores to see what I can dig up!
