This is now.
Kids were ROTTEN for our little 12 year old cousin who was watching them, so we kept having to intervene. I forgot some stuff I had to get today so I had to make a second trip to the store, and had to take Captain Destructo with me since he was getting to be too much for the preteen. I forgot the paint samples I had to match for the custom orders. The new wax paste finish I wanted to try on this amazing table we're working on turned out to be a lot more difficult to work with than we thought . . . And yep, I STILL HATE stripping furniture, even if the stripper is one of those environmental friendly, not so toxic, doesn't burnt through your skin straight to you bone marrow types.
And finally, Captain Destructo needed his "privacy" so he locked one of the twins out of the bathroom and she refused to use the blue froggy potty upstairs and so peed her pants AGAIN (that would be the 3rd time today). Ugh. What happened to today??? So full of promises.
Thanks for listening. Now back to furniture.
This is was I did Saturday:
I got an indigo blue for the big table down stairs, but I had a strong feeling it just wasn't the right shade so I thought I would try it out on a little table first to see if I could work it into the right color.
The short of it is, I'm still not sold, but I do like how this little guy turned out. It's actually quite a bit darker and bluer than the photos turned out . . .
