Okay, baseball metaphors aside, I am seeing the light at the end of tunnel on the special project dresser. I think the perfectionist in me is getting the upper hand lately. (Which isn’t all bad!)
Hopefully, this might clear things up a little:
And if that didn’t help, I’ll explain. Using Photoshop, I copied the flower from the sheets that will soon be on the young lady’s bed. I deleted everything but the flower and the stem and then deleted all the color from the flower. That was the design for the dresser and I used it as a pattern. I drew it on using chalk and then painted the ‘Watery’ blue color around it, leaving the flower in its primer white. Then using several paintbrushes, I carefully repainted the white using the same satin finish. We are so close to the finish line! I just did the last touch ups, now to let the paint cure a day or so. This is a relatively long process as I have to let each color of paint cure in between coats in order for me to really touch it. You cannot be in a hurry!
Tomorrow, I believe I will be ready to put the ‘jewelry’ on the dresser and we’re seriously almost done! I am so excited!! What do you think? Did it turn out okay?
On top of things, we had a little snowstorm this morning and it is seriously impeding my ability to acquire new pieces of furniture! Who wants to be out in the mess? LOL. We did sell the first two batches of doll hangers on eBay (yay!) and I have listed the bed and bedding on Craigslist, want to double list it with eBay as well and see which one might have the best response. I haven’t figured out how to ship the bed as of yet, but it isn’t too heavy but kind of bulky.
Okay, this is headache day number four and I’ve come to the point where I am going to have to give in and go lie down in a dark room. No smelling paint and glue fumes for a day or so. It is getting serious!
Thanks for dropping by! Happy Crafting Y’all!
