I just finished my latest piece of furniture and it's another winner ;) I've been keeping very busy and it seems word has been spreading about my new hobby. I was blessed this week with some new clients and some awesome free furniture. I designed and ordered some business cards and am hoping to start advertising soon! I love painting furniture and taking something from boring to beautiful so I'm just taking this hobby wherever it (and God) leads me! :)
My poor husband's garage has started to look like a furniture warehouse....and sometimes like a furniture graveyard ;) But he's been so supportive and has helped me with anything I've asked of him, Thanks sweetie!!
So this week I worked on an antique desk that my client picked up at a flea market. She already had a bed that she wanted me to match it to and hallelujah! Annie Sloan's Old White was a perfect match.
Here's a quick pic of the bed I was matching.
Isn't it beautiful? A lucky little girl who loves horses gets to enjoy these antique pieces :) Here's what her desk looked like before.
The foot of the desk kept falling off so I used some wood glue before screwing it back on and now it's on there really good. I sanded down the desktop because there were some very uneven spots and then gave the top a few coats of primer. The rest of the desk I just started with the chalk paint and ended up using three coats.
I only distressed the edges but tried to do them heavily. The drawer fronts with their rounded edges ended up perfect.
I would have staged it a bit more but I had just finished waxing and knew I only had about an hour of sun left. Thank goodness I got these few pictures because today it is lightning and thundering out and tonight this beauty is going back home!
