well, here it is folks!!!
i've been inspired to make a blog, helping to showcase my creativity. i have no idea how often i'll be able to update it, or who will even want to follow, but at least it will be fun! [thanks for the push, bonita rose k!] i will attempt to add my projects & document stuff that i create. [i know this is trite, but i've never done this before, ok!?] :)
i picked up the supplies today on my lunch hour at my local goodwill store for $8.95. i plan to prime/spray paint [all in one, of course...i mean, who has time to do it in more than one step?!] with krylon dual satin in ivory [from walmart]. i think i will attempt to attach the pieces together with screws i have in the junk drawer, but may end up using various forms of glue [but don't fret, i will avoid using duct tape, despite the awesome colors available now!]
i will post in-progress & finished product pics as i go!
p.s. does this mean i get to participate in blog hops now?! :)
OK, MISS ASHLEY ROCK! HERE'S AN UPDATE! :)
and since you're currently my only follower, i MUST keep you intrigued & returning to my blog!! haha
i spray painted the pieces. i sanded the wooden candlesticks, but not the metal pans. & i think i really like the color!
[i'm thinking that i should have sanded the pans, but i didn't want to buy more sandpaper to start with a coarse grit to a fine grit...] here's an up-close of the largest pan:
& here you can see where paint may chip probably sooner rather than later! oh well, you live and learn!
i still have to paint the insides & maybe do another coat of paint...but first i have to do some homework...
