I finally finished my bar stools. One needed major repairs, one had to be redone and one needed cleaning... and it took me a year. Oh, the shame of it!
The Creature from the Black Lagoon started life as Forbidden Planet (Did you just break into the theme song from Rocky Horror? I know I did) but since I couldn't varnish it until I was done painting and it's been sat on for over a year... well... her bright orange dressed faded to an embarrassing shade of naked. It kind of reminds me of those pens and coffee mugs Dads used to have that disrobed, but there I go, digressing again. Evidence:
Sad! I loved that poster.
Now it looks like this:
And I replaced the trim so there's no embarrassing crack back there. (I'm absolutely unfit for polite society today).
Wanna see the happy little threesome?
And their pretty faces:
My kitchen island just told me it feels very lucky to be in such cool company.
I never stop being amazed at what you can accomplish with Mod Podge, paint and cool paper - these were calendar pages before they hopped on my old boring stools.
That's all I've got for you in terms of finishing today
Just an FYI, there aren't any rules to Finishing Week. You don't need to have mentioned it for it to "count" or anything legalistic like that. I just hope everyone who reads this blog has the pleasure of getting a few things done this week, uses up some of their stash, completes a project instead of starting a new one, clean that attack closet, etc.
Please leave me some comments letting me know what you've been working on. I really love hearing about what you're up to.
P.S. My huge apologies if I haven't responded to all your comments this week. My spine
dropped acid is misfiring and my hands feel like Mickey Mouse gloves - very gigantic and fat - so hitting the keys is a nightmare. Most of my post looked like this:
Heriu Everyonlle. I finalllly finishernd my bareoijstools.
Seriously! Very irritating stuff, but it beats the earlier misfires like the sensation that I'd caught fire or feeling like I sat in a puddle of water. Spines are weird.
