I think it is a beautiful piece but wanted to lighten up my living room a little.
When I got started I couldn't stop! I wanted to splash some paint on everything.. good thing I didn't have more time.
I called hubby in to look at the top to decide if I should paint the top or leave it. Being the the sweet guy he is, he took the whole thing apart to fix the gaps. He thinks the top is not original because it was never nailed down properly. Boy, am I glad someone put this one on it. I love it.
I think I am going to keep it and stain it again. Yep, I see the stains and chips.. doesn't bother me. I just can't paint over that inlay, love the look of the wood and paint together.
It is drying from glue so I didn't get to finish it. I think I may order the Annie Sloan clear wax before I finish. I love the consistency of her dark wax so much more than the clear wax I bought at the big box store.
I did get this little stool finished. A patient I did private duty for in the early 80's, made this. He gave it to me before he passed, so it has a special meaning to me.
Petty dinged up but I love it that way. Love the way this paint sands off! I use this stool beside my bed to give me a boost up.
I am really slow to post these days as I am putting in a lot of hours with my new job. I noticed I lost one of my followers.. hate that.. so if you don't hear from me as usual please hang with me. I am over half way thru my time to be able to work from home. I can't wait!
Hope to get my finished projects up soon .. still going to tackle that hutch!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week and if you are in N.C. stay inside, another hot one.
