I was feeling a little blue yesterday, so this color matched my mood perfectly ;). I knew I needed to paint this piece a deeper color to try to hide all the dings and scratches, this poor little guy was beat up!
Here he is before.....and yes, it is a 'he'. I don't know his history but he has seen his fare share of bored children engraving their names on his top and doggies chewing his sides. After a good coat of wood filler and even a better amount of time sanding him down, he was ready to paint.
poor little man.
His top is smooth as a baby's bum....sorry, I just had to say that.
I heavily distressed him to try to 'hide' all the dings that I couldn't fill, there were just too many!
I had to get rid of those knobs, they were beyond ugly. So I filled in the holes and made way for some 'new' ones that I had in my stash. Much better.
This post looks patriotic to me. Red, White, and Blue.
Happy late Independance Day!....the month of July symbolizes to me pride and patriotism to our country. I'm so thankful to live here and enjoy our freedoms. God Bless America!
