Well, I'll post more pictures soon. I'm off to make my Christmas cookies, I'm running out of time for the cookie exchange...and then I have more stockings to make for the guild...I am so over extended that it is just plain crazy around here!
Okay so here it is with the drawer in, the bottom shelf is completed. All I need to do now is sand, paint and distress then put on drawer pulls and door knobs... Yippee all most done!
I'm going to paint this in robin egg blue and distress with a dark ebony....I'll show you when it's done...so excited.
The last few days have been burrrrr cold, so painting was out of the question. Instead of painting I decided to give carving a try...well it's not perfect but I carved a Fleur-de-lis with some scrolls across the drawer. You'll see it soon because I might be able to paint this weekend. Suppose to be in the 70's a couple days....Let's hope so, I'd sure like to get this piece finished!
Can you believe it...the first layer of paint on...need to hand sand then antiqued and seal and I'll finally be done with this monster!
as hard as I try I can not capture the antiquing that I've done on this piece. I used a dark ebony to antique it.
Can you see the carving in the picture above? It's more apparent in person.
