I have been enjoying the heck out of my summer, hanging out with my 2 kiddos, jumping in the pool, bbq'ing with friends. But alas, a little work should get done, and I recently finished something worthy of a few words.
This is his before state. Not sure why I always have to make the furniture have a gender, but I guess they just speak to me, and this one definitely said boy.
Then I came down with the worst cold I've had in forever. In the summer even, SO lame. I literally got one coat on this project and had instant headache and chills. Boo to that!! Enough with the sob story though. After about a week when I felt like a human again, I headed back out to see where we were. To me the yellow looked too light, and the drawers were a little too shabby chic. So a second coat, and then a third coat, and that seemed to do the trick!
The hardware got 2 coats of Vaslpar's Cottage black. I did a light sanding between each coat, some very light distressing, and sealed the whole thing a soft wax.
What do you think??
Not exactly like the inspiration piece, but a nice tribute! This guy is now down at Persnickety's. You should head down there and see all the other amazing things they have in stock!!!
