All three pieces in 90 minutes.
When I saw these two stools last week, I knew what I would do with them.
Do you see three men in a tub or a dead three-legged dog?
A very light coat of Rust-Oleum in Navajo White.
A light sanding with a sanding sponge.
Howard's Citrus Shield in Dark Oak.
If you are picky about your fingernails - use gloves.
An enhanced close-up of the top of one of the stools.
The grain can be seen through the paint.
Distressing the easy way!
I like the shape of this one the best.
A candlestick table in great shape.
Several of the dealers at the antique mall are stocking their booths with white furniture along with whatever they normally have.
So get ready for several white makeovers from me.
Krylon Spray Chalky Finish in Classic White.
A true white.
Then the top.
I could not resist adding a bird to the top.
Bird image from The Graphics Fairy.
Here's my waxed paper transfer just before flipping.
Taped down tight with one end left untaped so I could check the progress.
I use a brayer first, then use the edge of the roll of tape to burnish the image.
The bird was too striated for me.
This can be fixed if you are fast enough and can color in the lines.
I wanted some striations, but not well-defined ones.
I wrapped my index finger with a paper towel and gently began to smudge the ink to create shadows.
You do not wish to go outside the lines.
I added the little cloud in the background.
It may look like bird droppings.
