It’s Friday, time to show le Stuff you did this week,
Link up your projects at the bottom.
In honor of the “premier officier” Friday, I am showing you one of my first and favorite “Redouxs”
This wasÂ a thrift store find.Â Purchased for a few dollars when we moved into our current home.Â I knew I wanted to “redoux” furniture, had tried my hand at a few things, and this time, decided to let my creativity take a new level.Â I did a bunch of different finishes, used Black wax to age it. Â Rubbed Gold Paint on the inset, then to really get the old look I wanted. a friend who owned an Antique storeÂ suggested I take a blow torch to it!
It is a tricky thing to do, and I recommend a lot of practice, and appropriate safety gear…… Â but it does create a really neat effect of making the paint “bubble up”
This chair has proudly sat as sentinel to the backyard for almost 8 years now.Â
Mostly it gets used as a step stoolÂ by my daughter as she takes her seat at our built in nook for dinner.Â
Oh well, at least it gets used.Â
Every Friday, I will host the party, hope you will be here to share.Â
