You may remember this from a while back. I got this candlestick at Joey’s booth. It was there 2 weeks in a row, so on my second visit it just sort of jumped in my cart!
I believe it was .96 cents. I really didn’t like the color. It sat in the garage on my tool shelf ever since. But I’ve been trying to take it easy this week and only went outside to do a little spray painting.
Notice how I set everything up off the table? (my grooming table!) It really makes it easier to spray. I used the ole standby, Rustoleum Heirloom White.
After spraying I used a brush to paint on some watered down burnt umber.
I have been using a paper towel , but I really like using the brush better. In fact I have a new favorite brush. I adore it!
I did a light glazing on this piece.
As opposed to a heavier glazing I did on this piece.
I love how the glaze falls into the cracks . . .
. . . and the crevices.
Do you remember this little rickety table? I blogged about it here.
This is the buttery yellow oops paint I used.
While I had the burnt umber out, I used it on the little rickety table also.
Some people thought I should, some thought I shouldn’t. It was pretty even.
I had a very difficult time getting a good sharp picture. There wasn’t much daylight coming through the windows. What do you think? Should I have left it the delicious buttery yellow? My nephew came by today, and he thinks it would look good painted black. He thinks everything looks better painted black. I guess he doesn’t mind dusting! hahah
Jamie will be passing through overnight. We are going to a family reunion this weekend. I am very much looking forward to taking it easy and relaxing. She doesn’t know it yet, but I’m hoping she will find the time to help me rework some of my living room decor.
I’ve been talking to Rose @ ConfessionsOfaCurbshopaholic this week. I can’t wait for you to see pictures of her new outdoor kitchen. Make sure you keep up with her blog. It is going to be awesome! She is really being creative and using a lot of her junk stuff treasures to make this truly a one of a kind project!
