It is truly beautiful and so yummy you want to lick it.
If you're following me, you've seen this chest before. Yuck w/ to the flowers, pink, baby blue and leaves. YUCK!! But for $3 at the local GW I couldn't walk away from it. Specially since it will serve as "hide the junk" place when family and friends are over. =D can't go wrong for $3 right?
This gave me a great opportunity to do some thing fun. But I still held it back a little because I have another paint can that is full of FUN and I can't wait to show you all that. That will be my daring to be fabulous project that will probably take a few weeks to complete because I have a few other projects stashed away, hiding. =D
Here is my assistant priming. Jacob is such a wonderful helper. He is always ready to get his hands dirty and help out. I don't think he has ever said no to me. Really!
Notice I taped the hardware w/ my favorite frog tape.
I protected the cedar from paint by taping that as well.
I covered the paint tray w/ a grocery store bag and pre wet the paint brush. I love how easy this makes painting =D
I knew from the minute I thought about painting the cedar chest that I had to make sure the cedar and hardware were not painted. So I lined the inside edges w/ the green tape and pressed it down w/ my nails so that it wouldn't bleed. It worked *wink*
Do you spy Jacob taking a break and playing on the puter? He was too funny today!
I'm so very happy w/ how it all turned out. It is perfect although I am considering glazing. We'll see once I've lived w/ it w/ a bit just as she is.
BTW, this is how my pre soaked brush, roller and covered tray cleaned up after just a minute or two under the running water. Super duper sparkly clean! almost as if I'd never used them =D
