I was going through some of my old photos last night and came across a few with furniture pieces from before I refinished them! Oh, the memories it brought back. So I thought it would be fun to tell you a little about them:
If you've looked at my "Things I've Painted" page, you will recognize both of these pieces!
TV Console NOW:
We bought this piece from a unique furniture store in Gilbert, AZ called The Potato Barn. I had it almost 7 years before I refinished it.
And that adorable face is my middle boy Barrett :)
When refinishing this piece, I left the top alone, and painted the bottom with a creamy white (not sure the color.....remember this is Pre-Blog!). I glazed it with an antiquing glaze, but used a DRY cloth instead of a damp cloth to give it a heavier antique look
Ok, moving on!
I love this bench! When I was growing up this bench was in the waiting room at my Dad's office. When I was a senior in High School, my Dad went to work for a company and moved out of the office. I begged him to let me keep the bench! He so lovingly did, and even stored it for me while I went off to college! So I have had this bench for a loooong time!
Sitting on it in this picture is my oldest son Talmage (it was his 5th birthday)
I used the exact same technique for this bench as I did for the TV console:
So now you know the history behind these two pieces that you've
seen throughout my blog!
