Oh What Fun!




I have had a ball, reading and finding out about all the wonderfully talented people out there. I'm learning, and would appreciate any constructive imput and help. After all, I not only want to tell you what's going on in my live and the people that I am closest to, but I want to be an inspiration to others too.



I decided to cut loose and paint a pie safe that I bought 17 years ago when I got married. I've had it in my main restroom all this time, holding lots and lots of junk---ugh....so, after so many ladies inspiring me to Get With It, I decluttered and painted. Now ladies, I couldn't get too daring with my paint, so I painted a solid black. Please let me know what you think.........

My goodness Linda! It doesn't even look like the same piece of furniture! It is beautiful! Great job! Did you sand it first? I need to get some things painted around here and have been afraid to do so! You make it look easy!!!

Hugs,
Maryjane

Hi Maryjane,

Thanks for the compliment! I did not sand it, it was so worn I didn't think that it needed it,but if it had had a lot of varnish on it, or really beat up, I may have lightly sanded it. I used a satin paint from Lowes, Velspar I think it was black paint, rolled it on with a smooth roller- only took about 3 hours and it was done--easy. By the way I love your blog! Thanks and blessings to you, Linda
