In the interest of keeping it real, I just have to say that I am discouraged. Actually, that is putting it mildly, but lets just stick with that .
The reason? There are several...just stuff that's just not working out the way I had hoped. Feeling overwhelmed with homeschool and housework, irritated with my weight and with losing the same 40 lbs over and over again ....
And now I seem to have lost my mojo with the furniture painting.
Remember I mentioned the chairs from hell almost two weeks ago?
Well, they are the reason I have not posted in more than a week. I have been trying to get them done, but it was a huge waste of time and Effort, with a capital E.
OK, so let me show you again...
Got these for $6.00 a piece at Goodwill a while back.
I honestly thought that it would be easy to make them pretty again....I had big dreams for them......
Untill I got here.....
Two million staples (honest, I counted), and two whole days later, the chairs were stripped, sanded and primed.
I then sprayed them with Krylon mat black.
Next followed a series of distress, don't like it, re-paint, sand,distress, try to wipe stain over, don't like it, spray paint black again, dry brush with white, re-spray again.
Its a good thing I don't really like the end result, because I would never be able to recreate the effect ever again.
Are you depressed yet? Don't worry, you will be after I tell you about my attempts to re-cover (I would not call in re-upholstering) the back and seat.
Actually, the seat went really well..
