I sanded the living daylights out of this coffee table for my good friend Alina. I was hoping to have it stained and painted today, but I had a few issues to say the least. This seems to be a recuring story for me. I guess that's what I get for learning all I know from google and no actual people or lessons.
In my head I have this amazing finished project, so hopefully sooner than later I will be able to post it. . I have been out there since it was burning hot and finally forced myself in when the bugs were eating me alive. Tomorrows another day.
Now for my finished bench and I am so excited about. My dad got this coffee table at the "Colburn wal mart" with two matching end tables. The minute I saw them I knew they were perfect for these benches I've wanted to try. I made the coffee table first for my room and am going to do the end tables next, maybe for entry way benches or at the foot of a bed to sell. Here it is before:
And here she is now. I have named her Chloe. Doesn't yellow make you think of a Chloe??
Now I just have to decide...a window bench or a foot of the bed bench??
I love it. Love, Love Love it. Not to toot my own horn or anything:) I have seen these on many a blog, so I will not take all the credit. And you know I had to shabby it a little...
Is still have to attach the top. I will screw it on from the bottom. I also have to seal it still. I am thinking of trying my hand at a wax I have read so much about instead of my standard poly.
There are so many different styles, colors and fabrics out there. I think they could be great for so many different things. Something to spruce up a room, a seat for putting on your shoes, a bench in your bathroom, dressing room, closet. If you are interested in purchasing one please feel free to email me.
After a day full of sanding.....Im ready for another one tomorrow. I hope to get two more pieces done before the end of my time off (36 hours:( )
Here is a peek at a project Macie and I are working on for her new room in Vegas.
