Hi everyone!! Hope you are having a relaxing Easter so far!!
I have a little before and after to show you (yeah, another one! I've been on a roll lately!!)
This is another first for me, as was the pink piece in my last post!
I haven't painted cane before.
It was unexpectedly a learning process.
Not as straight forward as I thought it was gonna be.
Its always good to learn something, right?!
Anyway. Here it is...
Complete with some little easter bunnies the girls got off their great-nanna!
And just a few of my fave magazine that I can't bear to throw out!
So here's what I learnt:
-Cane is porous. Very porous in this case. (it drinks up all the paint and you have to keep adding more and more and more!)
-You can buy spray paint from discount stores that are 1/4 of the price from a hardware store. Handy when you need about oh...5 or 6 cans!
-Perhaps a specific primer would have been a good idea in hindsight.
- Gloss was the perfect choice for finish on this piece. Yay!! One thing I did right!! Gloss is a lot more durable than a matt finish would have been.
After all that...I do love it!
All's well that ends well!!
I hope you are enjoying the break as we are!
From my family to yours -
