I slathered the piece with "Weathered Crackle Glaze" and let it dry for about two hours. While it was drying, I watched the neighbors gawk at it with confused expressions on their faces. I know the neighbors LOVE all of the furniture in our yard. (Please note the white grass below the saw horses!) In our defense, our house is on the market in hopes of finding another house with a little privacy (and shade) while we're painting.
I love the color red and I try to use it as often as I can! After I sprayed the piece red, (it only took one coat with the crackle glaze) I re-painted the feet black. I also painted the knob to match.
Now it is adorable and full of character. We may have to hang onto this one...
Please note some of my other favorite things in this picture! I LOVE my new tobacco basket hanging on the wall! I put it near the door in the event that there is another kitchen fire in our home! This baby is going outside with me! (Of course I'll make sure Big Dump is out safely first!)
I also love the wooden tote box that is propped by the table. We found this at a nearby auction (note the convenient little handle so I can grab it on my way out too)!
Happy Treasure Hunting!
