Here is what they looked like all naked:
And here they are now:
I cannot tell you how exciting it was and how fun it was to be painting again! I am sure any of you out there that paint and create understand the satisfaction and the pride in doing something yourself! I was painting the doughboard and distressing it ~ when I put the stain on at the end I could not believe how the wood came alive! I know it sounds so silly but it was just like this spark in me was re~lit! I was like "well what do you know" it's really turning out!! :) Once I started there was no stopping me.....I finished all three projects in one day! My Mom and Dad are coming for a visit tomorrow and I am so excited for him to see everything all done! It was just like old times~Dad cut it out and put it together and I put the finishing touches on! I told him that next on my list is a toaster cover and a shelf for my basement and he said "well just send me some pictures of what you want"!!! Aren't Dad's the absolute best!!
Can't wait for everything to dry completely so I can put all the "fun stuff" on them! I will post more pictures when they are all decked out! Until next time take care. ~Sarah~
