- My thumb… You can read more about that here. I’m still recovering from surgery and it doesn’t really want to cooperate much.
- We own some apartments and we are in the middle of renovating them, which demands a lot of my time.
- I have to work…. Well, part-time, I work as a cashier in the cafeteria at the local high school.
First I must apologize the lighting on these pics do NOT do it justice. It's late... no good light...have to use the flash...but I must finish!!
First, I primed it, which I’m sure most of you know to do.
Then I took a sanding block, and sanded it down to smooth out the bumps. Primer loves to soak into unfinished wood.
Then, on to the first coat of paint. Now don’t ask me what the color is because I found it in my basement and I have no idea how old it is or what I may have painted with it. But it is this lovely grayish whitish color.
I first painted the taped areas with the tray color, it helps the lines to come out clean.
Then when that coat dried, I painted the contrasting color. I’m going to use a REALLY old can of blue paint… we’ll see how it comes out.
I'm swooning with love… To finish it off, I will coat it with a couple of coats of water-based polyurethane.
