Last Thursday night we went to a SF Giant’s Game. So fun, put together by a friend of ours from church. We sat in the nosebleed section, but there were a lot of us there, and we had spirit. (The family missing our oldest, who was worried about being too tired at school the next day, tests, stress and being a high schooler……). And, in case you were wondering, yes, that is a REAL SNUGGY I am wearing. Hard earned and won two years on Giant’s Snuggy Night, (they were giving them away and darn if someone in my family wasn’t going to get one, we have two by the way)
In honor of the Giants, (who by the way beat the Padres), I bring you my latest Redoux.
I did this last week, when Emma and I were working like crazy, and ……. I forgot to take a before picture!!!!
I found this piece at Goodwill. I got it for practically nuthin because it was missing a mirror. I much prefer a nice big chalkboard to a mirror anyhow. I measured out the space where a mirror would have gone and cut a piece of MDF to fit the space. Primed it, then sprayed it out with two heavy coats of Chalkboard paint. Super easy!
I painted the entire piece in CeCe Caldwell’s Simply White. Then I lightly glazed it with a very weak mix of Modern Masters Glaze medium and a few drops of Rusty Black colorant (paint). This produced the Grey look.
Next I added a little more black, and randomly glazed the entire piece, focusing on the corners and detailed areas.
I removed the hooks and spray painted them in what else? Chalk Board Paint. (It is really flat, and adheres great).
I wish I had a space for it here, but it went off to my NEW space at Paris Flea Market today. Can’t wait to get it all set up to show you!
