So last fall, I took some ivory spray paint and went to town. After several coats, it was finally ready for distressing and glazing. I lightly sanded the edges and corners, especially on the legs which typically get the most wear and tear. Then I mixed some brown craft paint with a glazing medium and worked it into every little nook and cranny. There were a gazillion of 'em, I tell ya! I thought I'd never finish. Then the poor thing got waxed. Not that kind of waxed. Buffed with furniture wax. Then--are you still with me?--came reupolstering the seat. I had never reupholstered anything before. It took me, my husband and my new bff, the staple gun, to do it. I used fabric from a curtain panel that never got hung up, a pretty green and brown toile.
Then it was finally FINISHED! And I'm so pleased with how it turned out. Quite proud of myself, actually. It's ok. You can pat me on the back. I don't mind:)
