Oh, I have so much to share, I’m about to burst!! We had the glitter letter workshop today, I have an exciting event with The Graphics Fairy coming up, I have been using every spare minute to make Christmas ornaments and decor to sell, and I scored some awesome furniture on Thursday. I’ll share it all soon, but tonight, I’m tired, so I’m just going to show my dresser makeover and the two new signs I made for the shop.
Do you remember this dresser? I bought it at a yard sale a few weeks ago. It was in great structural condition and someone had even sanded it down for me! That might be a minus for some people, but it was a huge plus for me.
I painted it with a brush (the old fashioned way), sanded it heavily, and followed it with a rub of dark walnut stain. I waxed the top with Johnson’s Paste Wax to seal and protect it. Glass knobs add a little sparkle and balance out the “shabbiness” of the piece. (By the way, the color is Stolen Kiss by Sherwin Williams.)
I also painted two new signs. One with a sheep on it, advertising “Spun Wool” and…
…I made a second Pig Powder sign, since the first one sold so quickly at Lucketts.
I can’t wait to share everything else with you, but I’ve got to get back to work on my ornaments!
