YES!! I remembered to take before pictures!
I got this "cutey" at an auction a few months ago.
Though a little ruff ..ok a lot ruff.. I liked it's lines and the closed storage at the bottom. I hoped that with a paint job someone else would like it also.
I started out painting it this aqua color. Waaay too bright!
Hoping the mahogany stain would react with the aqua paint and create a wonderful weathered finish.
I had this happen before by mistake and I loved it.
But of course when you want something to happen it doesn't.
So I decided I wanted it to have a weathered gray look with aqua peeking out.
....like it had been sitting on a deck of a beach house....
...mine of course...
I think I got pretty close.
Tomorrow I'll put it my booth dressed with lots of seashells, starfish and driftwood.
I'm joining these parties:
