19 Apr MSU Workshop Makeover Series ~ Ornate Half Round Antique Table
Life seems to be a never-ending ride of busy-ness. I’m so tired, I could tip over and fall asleep at this very moment and it’s only 7:00 p.m.! How do you all find “down time”? Is there even such a thing anymore?
I’ve been dying to share the awesome furniture makeovers from the workshop we taught at Michigan State University a couple weeks ago. These girls did such an amazing job!! I gave them a little guidance then was BLOWN AWAY by their finished pieces. I am always so proud of our student’s accomplishments!
I don’t have finished shots for all the pieces yet. We had to be out of the building before the doors automatically locked on us that day so I missed out on taking a lot of finished shots. I’ll be sharing various pieces over the course of the next several weeks during this MSU Shizzle Style Paint Workshop Series.
The first piece I’m sharing is this beautiful hand carved antique table
Martha had it in her shop for a while and it wasn’t getting much attention so she thought she’d take a whirl at painting it. She started out by giving it a coat of CeCe Caldwell’s Smoky Mountain.
It was gorgeous with one quick coat!
Well, let me tell you ~ Martha is a quick learner! While I was going around the room helping other gals ~ she did this with a little Vintage White!
A little wet distressing and a little Clear Wax sealed the deal. Here’s a shot of the finished piece. It hasn’t been buffed yet in this photo but it’s already breath taking!!
Isn’t it AWESOME!! I don’t think she’ll have any trouble selling it now!!
Great job Martha!!
Stay tuned for many more makeovers from our Michigan State University Workshop.
