No before pics simply because I found this BBD (before blogging days). Nice excuse, but it is the truth. Anyway, a long time ago I sprayed this garage sale find Krylon's Cornflower Blue. It sat because I jump around the creative/crafting map more times than I get stuck driving my kids to school because they can't get it together in the morning.
|Here it is minus the top. I distressed this like a crazy woman!|
|I drew out the design on the top. BIG PAIN! You have to look really close. Pull out those readers if necessary.|
|Taped it off, more pain, so a glass of wine was in order. My advice...map it out before hitting the bottle.|
|Mixed charcoal craft paint with glaze because I wanted a more sheer, subtle look plus the glaze acts like glue and won't run under the tape like straight paint would.|
|Looking good!!!! More wine please!|
|And the "cheap mom" always reuses her tape.|
|This would make a great lap top desk. I'm going to paint a chair to match, stay tuned!|
