I'm just a bad blogger.

I need help, I'm not very good at the technical stuff. I don't even know if I have anyone subscribed. Always wonder if people don't leave comments because they hate my stuff or because I'm not set up to receive comments. I am going to get better at the end of May.  Or try to. I even bought a book. lol Ok so here is my newest project. Still needs a finish coat on the main part of the vanity but I am just so excited to put it up.

Oh I have a new love! This pair of antique C.B Atkins chairs are over 100 years old. When we were reupholstering we found hand forged square nails and 4 different fabrics. I will write more when I get a chance here is a just a quick after shot.  The actual color has a bit more teal in I have to wait to get them out into natural light to take better pictures.

These are for sale on craigslist.

The newest additon

This dresser was hell. That's just about all I can say. I used Martha S paint and beyond putting it on with a spray gun, trying to get a even coat was horrible.  Anyways, here is the before.

After many "ugggghs" I finally finished and listed. I think it turned out great I just know better for next time that metallic is not my thing. Here is the after.

My opinion on spray primer

I'm just comparing the two major Krylon and Rust-oleum. Absolutely hands down the winner is Rust-oleum. It provided 2-3 more coverage and better. It took a whole can of the Krylon to cover a small plant stand and not that well. I used 1 can of the Rust-oleum for one large dresser and drawers. Now this is just the primer I don't have an opinion on the regular paint.....YET. lol

Also just finished today. Before

And after......


Happy Monday! This past week I sold my favorite piece and although it made me sad to see it go I was able to purchase a much needed item. A spray gun! This bad boy is cutting down on my priming time. Now if the wind would just go away I could get some things done. I finished a little plant stand and listing on craigslist.
