I shot an arrow into the air.
Where it landed, I simply do not have the energy to care.
As to what it hit, I do not have the time to spare!
I give a huge standing O to all of you who blithely travel from farm sales to antique fairs hauling your merchandise with you.
I am in a dither about the Magnolia Ridge Antiques & Arts Gathering.
Every time I think I am ready, I think of a gazillion things I need to do.
Believe me when I say, having a booth space is many, many times easier.
Back to today's post which is the makeover of the globe and dictionary stand from Friday Finds.
It was already quite sturdy and mostly clean.
Yes, you did spy my handy dandy grill brush - the all-purpose furniture cleaner.
I had two partial cans of Krylon matte gray I thought would be perfect.
I always paint the bottom of a piece first.
I was loving this color.
Flipped the stand over to paint the tops of the shelves.
I had put an empty can in the cabinet!?!
Many, many choice words later.
And those words were very colorful.
I found a can of Rust-Oleum Satin Granite to finish the piece off.
A perfect match.
I did have to lightly spray over the parts I had finished.
BUT I did not have to put on clothes to travel out to Hobby Lobby!
Since reference books and globes were once stored here, arrows seemed to be the perfect stencil to use.
I used a bright white craft paint.
The stencil fit perfectly.
Available in Booth W-10, Riverfront Antique Mall.
I know I am being a bit selfish by not answering your comments like I usually do, but I am reading both your comments and your blog posts. I promise to back to normal after May 21.
<Well, as normal as I can possibly be.>
