I know I've been very bad with my posts, but time is getting even shorter for me from the past few weeks. Do you feel the time is running to fast? By the end of the day I wish we have more hours to accomplish everything I want to. And rest!!!
The good news are:
- I SOLD my very first piece of furniture (the picture will be on my side bar)
- I FINISHED the cabinet for my "first client" (which became my second)as well!!!!!
When I finally decided to put my first piece for SALE, which I've been postponing (I don't know why),I had to choose which piece I would sale.
So I picked my little desk/chair and posted on kijiji almost two weeks ago, on Saturday night.
Sunday I got first contact and the same person came on Tuesday to pick it up. I explained about the technique of the paint and believe me, the guy really watches those house and home TV shows!
He bought it for his wife and with no doubt, he said she would fall in love with the piece.
Now, I have to finish another desk (it's almost done) to replace that one, and who knows will be gone as fast as the previous one?
This was my first experience selling, and I have to say that I was quite happy, not only because it was a fast sale, but because the person who bought it really liked the job I've done it on that desk. It's a wonderful feeling when the client appreciates your work! For me, that was the best part of the sale!
About "falling for blue?"
Oh my, I just LOVE blue, so I painted this little cabinet in blue and I made the shade of blue myself. A few months ago I bought on the Mistint section a little can for $2.50 in a nice blue, but I wanted lighter, so I kept mixing blue with white, until I got the shade I wanted.
It's fun to make your own shade of paint. I felt like a little kid learning how to mix colors!
Here are the results:
BEFORE the paint:
The cabinet was done from a friend who is taking carpentry course and he made this piece as a project.
After primed and 2 coats of paint, I started distressing it, a little bit here,
And I can't forget to mention the iron mesh I used, and with the staple gun, I did the job all around;
Here is a picture when I started using the blue over the primer
Volilá mes amis, another project done!
On my next post I'll ask a opinion from you about my kitchen. Yes, I'll finally start painting the cabinets next week. I'm just waiting for the weather to get better so I can enjoy painting outdoors.
I hope you are having a very good week with lots of sunshine in your hearts!
See you soon and enjoy the rest of the week!
