been super busy gearing up for Christmas sales in my Craft Booth #555 at my local co-op.
So sorry to be running behind here on posting this last week.
But here's a quickie of a set of end tables that I recently remade.
The tops were rougher before and had to be sanded and repainted before I started.
You can see below that the top sides are still drying.
All I really had to do was get out my stencils and find some that would kinda fit.
I chose the Olde Crow Game Board Co but used a star instead of a crow.
Why? Just because the crow shoulda' been black and on this table it wouldn't have shown up.
I used a mustard yellow and mixed it up with a bit of gray to get the color I wanted.
It was a very easy makeover. But don't forget to seal the top with some sort of clear coat or sealer.
I used RUST-O-LEUM 2x ultra cover in MATTE CLEAR.
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THE MATTE again though!
Simply because it's too flat on the black and adds a bit of dusting crap when finished.
Luckily it wiped off for me, but still is visible up really close!
But anyways, I wan't happy with the end result but didn't have time to go back and re-do everything.
So here they are side by side again:
And before I go, take a look at what I saw on a fence post while outside.
I think it's a praying mantis. But that's not the cool part. Take a closer look at what he has in his hands....
But what is super cool is that it is a red wasp!
And it only gets better. After I saw that, I kept my eyes peeled all day looking for him again.
I didn't see him but I did spy a close second. Lookie here~
Another one on the porch rail.
It looked like it was about to be stung, and I think it was once cause it kinda jumped. But it was there catching lunch also.
But it ducked and covered it's face a bit and then went on eating like a boss!
Look at this face!
Wow, I never really stop to look around this much. Creatures are awesome.
Now back to work....
Here's a sneak at what I'm working on this morning:
|More to come tomorrow on these Mason Jar Projects!!!!|
