Welcome to my little installment for Rhoda's 2008 Before & After Party.
This project is from October 30, 2008 and I know that many of you will remember it. It was my favorite project of the year and it still makes me smile whenever I walk past it.
Thanks for stopping by and make sure to visit the other blogs that are partying down today at Southern Hospitality!
_________________________________________________Remember that cute little telephone gossip bench that I bought at a garage sale?
First I used a liquid sanding product on her. Then, spray painted on a primer. Next, I hand painted her black, 2 coats. Then for fun, I painted the top areas with chalkboard paint. Then she sat around for awhile waiting for a new seat...
After much inner debate, I went with a light green, sagey sort of color with some swirls and floral designs in it, I really like it! I really thought I was going to make this chair 'casual', but my fanciness just got the best of me and well, I just made her all pretty and stuff...hope that's OK.
Oh, the D? It stands for Decorating Dork, haha. I think I read that on Nester's blog once and it is stuck in my head now ;)
So, are the next 5 days going to be the longest days of our lives or what?
