Updating bedroom furniture!!!
I decided if I was going to Survive this "empty nest syndrome" I was going to need to change his bedroom a little bit!!!Well there is no such thing as a little bit with me!!!!I told my hubby that I was going to paint C.J.'s old OAK bedroom furniture black and distress it, he said quote unquote "if you ruin it, I am NOT buying New Bedroom furniture, so if you are smart you will leave it as it is". I said "I won't ruin it". Well I googled how to do this project and got all kinds of ideas. But the simplest one was the path I chose!!!!The worst part was dragging it all to the garage all by myself!!!!And it was HOT outside that week-end!!!!
I bought several cans of Spray LACQUER SANDING SEALER by Deft!!Saved me hours of sanding!!Just spray on, wait, spray on again and then lightly sand!!!That was easy!!
Lightly sanding was easy, but again IT WAS HOT!!!
The many options I got was spray paint or brush on, I chose the brush on route. Brushed black paint on and then I decided to NOT distress it, I liked the way it looked not distressing it, I tried both ways.
Hubby came home........HE SAID quote-unquote YOU DID A GREAT JOB!!!!
THAT was the best part of all!!!!
