You might remember I told you I had decided to clean out the garage again. I was getting tired of not being able to move around. I still can't park in there, but I can move and sort better. Yes, I was cleaning out again. Most of the items I found I took to the booth this time. I'm sure you could see by the pictures. However, I can't take all the credit for my booth because my amazingly, talented, beautiful friends Michele, Rose, and Pam also put their amazing items in there too. Thanks goodness because I think I'd get overwhelmed doing it all myself.
Anyway, after cleaning up I came up with a huge redo pile. This is despite getting rid of some other stuff that I know I won't redo because I don't have time and it just didn't strike me as to what I was going to do with it. During my clean up my ADHD kicked in and I started redoing some things. I guess I got bored cleaning and excited about redoing, so I stopped cleaning and started painting. lol
You remember this from my dry brush painting technique tutorial.
This shelf was from my country years...
After: Much better in black. This is at the booth ready for a new owner.
I don't have a before picture, but it was a bright red pie cover. Now it's in the process of a shoo fly screen. I still need a handle and maybe another coat or two of paint.
Remember this???? Yucky white...
After: A warm brown though I think I'm going to add a little something more to make it look like a real brown wood.
I don't have a before but it was a galvanized metal that I repainted and re-electrified with Steve's guidance. I'm debating whether or not to get a glass cover for it or leave it as is.
Then finally I have coffee stained and framed some stitcheries so that I can finish patterns for them. They will be available soon.
Well, I have a to do list a mile long so I better get busy. This is my weekend to work YUCK! Hopefully I can work on my other stitchery some. I want to get it finished up :-) I will talk with you soon.
