This week I went Goodwill-hopping with a friend, and found a lot of great stuff!
Love when that happens! ;-)
We even stopped into a Habitat Re-Store, and things got a little bit craazzzyyy...ha ha
This is what happens when you are kid-free. =)
So the 1st thing I worked on from my Goodwill finds was the lamp base...
I purchased this for $5.99
((See that basket in the back? That was also a Goodwill find.))
Of course, our kitty Oscar thinks I bought it for him!
So the very first thing I did was, wipe it down with some Liquid Sander made by Klean Strip.
I gave it a good 10 minutes to dry before adding the first layer of black paint.
((It took about 3 layers of paint.))
Next: Take some sand paper, and "distress" it...
I then took a Q-tip and stained the wood...
((I used Golden Oak this time, because it went well with the Golden Glaze I was going to be using.))
Here is what it looks like after the distressing and stain...
I also added some Martha Stewart Living Golden Pearl Metallic Paint around the curves and grooves, and on top of the stained parts...
...and here it is!!!
Here's a close-up:
...and while I had the Metallic paint out, I went ahead and painted the basket too!
That will have it's own blog post, but here's a sneak peek...
Thanks for looking! =)
