Oh....how I have missed my little blog!
I have been out of the loop since our modem and router bit the dust. Both at the same time, you might ask??
Well, yes. When it rains it pours and with a baby boy that loves to throw things on the ground they didn't stand a chance.
And, here is a little re-do project I worked on for my sweet friend, Jessica from Seams Sew Wright
I just love those wooden thread spool legs, and how perfect for a friend that loves sewing!?
I found this little gem at my favorite shop...yep, you guessed it...Junk-n-the Trunk!!
live ummm, I mean, spend so much time there, I knew this little table wouldn't last long so I grabbed it right up!
Here is before...
on the underside of the table, I found this label....so neat to know who made this and when!
To give the table the distressed look that I love so much, I used my favorite little trick....I just dabbed a little Vaseline on the areas where I wanted the paint to underneath to come through.
Then I prepared a nice little area on the sidewalk to spray paint.....
And...well, I think I got a little carried away...
I was a little panicked when I lifted up the board I was using to paint on to see this!
I immediately went over to ask you all on Facebook for help, and you all came through!
I sprinkled baking soda all over the paint, and then poured on a little peroxide...after a little scrubbing with an old mop, the paint was gone!!
Whew, thank goodness for smart friends :)
So....in the end...I think it was all worth it.. Jessica loved her new table!
And... I learned about paint removal.
Thanks so much for taking a look!
