This was a brand new TV stand that a client of mine bought. It’s sturdy with good lines… but a bit ordinary.
(This post contains affiliate links for the products I use & love! I only recommend that what I use!)
I painted it in a red that is almost pink to start with. (it looks orange here).
Yes, this is my kitchen.
Yes, I do have a garage that is empty.
Yes, I have a studio in the basement.
Yes, I think it annoyed my hubby, but he was sweet enough to not tell me.
I just like painting in my kitchen. There is really no room in my house that is off limits.
I crackled a few spots.
Then I glazed it with Stain and Seal….. my favorite on furniture!! And X-Thinner.
After it dried, I added more glaze to all the edges to give it a “smoked” look.
I added “fly specking”….
And called it done.
All while it balanced on 4 cans of corn and 1/2 off the drop cloth (which is actually a blanket).
It’s very professional people. Just keeping it real.
It turned out so good in person. Client is thrilled. I love my job today.
