Scraping off (after about 24 hoursto let stripper work)
Applying a white wash (basically, thinned chalk paint)
Me pretending to act natural while someone takes my picture
Me not knowing what to do with my hands in a photo (think "Taladega Nights." ...and I know if I have to explain why something is funny, that means it isn't that funny)
Applying a mix of turpentine and black oil paint. This sinks into the grain, so pretty!
Me attempting to sew, literally my first time using the sewing machine in 15 years. Thank goodness for You Tube!!!
The finished product!!!
Very cool wood grain in this chair
So much character! I love it!!!
