I agree that I like to change things up but not for just 3 weeks. If I am going to work that hard on something..... there has to be either a party or it is going to stay for a while right?????
Bah Humbug to me huh?
Whatever...I can take it.
Here are the details.
You saw the before
There are 2 and I purchased them back in early spring. Cheap.
And the fabric I was going to use
Time for the staples to come out. Not a fun job and after I started then finished one my husband jumped in and did the second. Of course that was after much complaining about how my shoulder was hurting and me shouting loudly "boy this sure is hard". Walking around clutching my arm like somebody went all wrestle-mania and hit me.
I had to order the upholstery webbing online because I could not find any with the black stripe instead of the red. I think I did that about 3 months ago. Then I was tired and had to take a nap :)....not really but I want you to see how slow I was moving on this issue.
Spray paint was next and I am not going to put you too sleep with pictures of that. I will tell you that I used Krylon indoor/outdoor semi-gloss black. You don't need a picture of the can right?
That paint was the bomb. No dripping or clogging. So smooth. Score at Michaels for 4.99@can.
Well here we are after the paint and webbing was installed.
In case you are just joining us YES...my floors are white! In my whole house. All because of a dishwasher leak last summer.
Seriously I had to take a picture of how the webbing was. My memory has deteriorated so much. The 60's did that to me if you get my drift "wink wink". Go on with you little brats that weren't even alive then....
And...here they are all finished. Well one anyway. Both are done but they look just alike!
I still have not polished up the brass thingys on the legs. Waiting for them to get good and dry before I tape the legs again. Normally I am not that patient.
I have them both in my guest room, one at the foot of the bed and one here. [bed is to the right]
Then I was getting all stylish by folding this little flea market vintage crocheted throw on top.
One project finished...at least 50 to go.
I am kind of loving them.... what do you think????
Let's meet for coffee.....but let me know so I can slap on a little makeup. I don't want to scare anyone.
