Mr. MD is still out of town and I have been a busy girl! You know...while the cat is away, the mousy plays!
I scored (22 smackers) these nesting tables at
'My Favorite Place' here in Atlanta that seriously 'American Pickers' would know they hit the mother load.
This place has some serious junk and hidden treasures.
Couldn't wait to get home and get the paint brush back in action.
Since I am now a pro at this type of finish, I figured if I couldn't find the right place for them I could sell 'em.
My grandma's (Punkin) Victorian sofa passed down. Story is grandpa ordered from Argentina almost 70 years ago. There are a couple of chairs of the same vintage that my mom still has.
The finish has not been cleaned up for many years and there are vacuum strikes on the feet.
I'm stripping down and going to re-stain (you'll have to wait to see!). I could barely get up after bending over and twisting and working those biceps and triceps. There are lots of grooves and holes.
Take a look at the 'inside'. Burlap, horsehair and cotton. The upholster WILL keep this, no foam here. This is going to be love-er-ly when I am finished! Punkin would be so pleased to see her sofa getting a new life! :)
Been painting too....MR. MD said as long as I don't paint his gun safe, the 'vette or the dog, I can paint whatever I want!
