And get this...It didn't come from Craigslist
gasp! My mom found it at a garage sale here in town...$50.00 later... My mom chipped in $20.00, so it cost me $30.00 & it was all mine!!!
It is sanded, primed, painted & still being distressed...I ran out of my
tough as nails sandpaper tonight & decided to call it a night. I'll be back at it in the morning & I'll have some completed photos to share!!!
My mom also bought this pitiful desk at sale yesterday for $5.00 I have never seen such
ugly shiny paint in my life! This stuff was like automotive paint or something...Seriously I think it's the stuff they use on car parts! Lol
After a day & a half of sanding & stripping it finally turned into this...
Finished photos coming tomorrow...
I also decided to put tung oil on my TV cabinet & I love the way it turned out...I was afraid to put anything on it since I loved the wood SO much, but I love it even more now! =)
I also added rope knots for the pulls.
Oh...My daddy bought us a 32" flat screen for the living room today also!!! No more monstrous TV on my pretty new/old cabinet!
For the last of my
I have been pretty iffy with my current drapes in the living/dining. Although they are better than the chocolate brown ones, I'm just not loving them. So, I decided to buy a piece of burlap to try. I'm still a little eh...I'm just not sure what I am envisioning...
Any input? =)
