I completed so many quickies this past week I could not possibly put them all into this Sunday morning quickie post.
Here are a few.
Remember the fruit crate made into a cabinet?
I rather liked the old yellow Contact paper on the outside.
But the inside was covered in creepy white paper.
All the paper was falling off.
Out came the sander.
Inside and outside.
When I discovered some parts of the paper labels underneath, I carefully used a scraper.
The huge trunk tray's original paper was almost non-existent.
So it received a heavy sanding and a thorough washing.
I have a feeling there were a few undesirables living in its cracks.
Both the fruit crate and the trunk tray were given several coats of clear wax.
Ready to hang on a wall!
A group photo of all including the fire bucket which needed cleaning and waxing.
Off the booth!
I decided to paint the ladder.
It had red brackets at the top which I left.
This handmade pedestal needed regluing and cleaning.
One coat of turquoise was not enough for the pedestal.
The ladder really stands out in a crowd now.
Can't you see tiny white or orange pumpkins on it?
Here's a middle photo of the pedestal.
It was distressed and waxed, but I forgot an after pic.
Both ladder and pedestal off to the booth.
If I can maintain my quickie pace, there might be hope of all projects completed by Thanksgiving.
What am I saying!?!
Some have been around here for years.
