I have been painting like a crazy person all weekend trying to get all my pieces done for the Furniture Bank event this Thursday. I spray painted many brain cells away this weekend, literally... I have been slightly speech impaired saying Freudian slips like "this is going to be 'momental'" instead of 'momentous'. My husband just snickered and said to my kids "yes, mom is mental".
So here are some sneak peaks of before and
"almost" afters of some of the pieces going in the room I am doing.
I will be posting the final room Friday.
The Agate Cube Table in progress.
Originally a 80's maple veneer table,
its getting its base gilded and turning into a giant nugget of craziness:
A lovely grey formica top office table with black based gets glossed and golden with some Greek Key O'verlays (pssst... we are running a sale until Halloween!)
Some pleather tan and hunter green piped wing backs got the royal paint treatment and a stencil up their backs and down their cushions.
I am still dying over the fact that they make a spray paint for vinyl!
And it really works.
It is awesome. Get it at Autozone.
(They are in the process of a brand change from Rustoleum,
but you can find it in their spray paint section.)
And a boring white shelf gets paint, paper and legs.
I have a bunch of other stuff to finish, but I will have agate how to's as well as a boatload of other stuff to share. If you are near Boston please come out Thursday night to say hello and see the finished room. Its for a good cause, learn more here.
To all my East Coast folks, please stay safe during Sandy. It is crazy here. A bit unnerving watching the hype, and I just walked down the street and got splashed with this.
Still not near high tide, but pretty cool! All schools in Massachusetts are closed today, & we are hunkered down, fireplace lit.
I plan on gaining 5 lbs. since all I have been doing is EATING!
