I Made This For A Good Cause!
See this beaut? It wasn’t always this way. She went through a lovely transformation using this process. Long story short, here’s what happened:
The big announcement is that I made a TV stand! YES! … No The big announcement is this:
Aaron and I are adopting a baby!
It gives me tingles just saying it! I have never had this much conviction for anything in my entire life. I want to be a mum more than anything imaginable. So, it is a very long process to get all the stars to align. We have one year to solidly prepare. At the end of this next year, we need to have raised a significant amount of money to be able to proceed. $10,300 to be exact. Court costs and birth mother medical bills… I am afraid saving money we earn from our jobs won’t cut it, so I have decided to raise money the only other way I know how: solicit my services lol. We are starting our adoption fund raiser, where I will be refinishing furniture and selling it to you good people. I am not a beggar, and you should not feel guilty if you wouldn’t like to buy the custom furniture I have sweated and labored over, all with our future mini in mind. ;-)
Post Script: More Thoughts On This Transformation
I can’t even stand how ugly this was before.
No delay in priming this beast. Priming took about 20 mins. Any oil-based deglossing primer will do.
I slapped 3 coats of paint on, and brought it inside due to inclement weather.
This is what it should like like when you brush the glaze on. Just wipe it off with a dry towel. The easiest and funnest part!
This is what glaze does to the detail work. It pops! Stunning…
Throw some poly on that sucker, and you are ready to go.
