Y’all remember this project? The Chiferobe
well, I had a chance to go back and revisit it (yes, I am avoiding cleaning/organizing my Studio. Shush!). I went out Friday night and picked up what I thought I needed for the project; cheapo paint brushes, paint, masks, paint cup, rollers, can key…you know, the basics.
Just for continuity, here is what it looked like before I started stripping the paint off of it.
After an hour, I came down, saw the bubbling and got to work. After this stripping, the chif looked like this.
Big difference, huh? LOL
So, I did two more rounds of stripper/stripping, then cleaned with some mineral spirits to get to this…
Gorgeous dark wood. Dinged, ripped, damaged dark wood 😦
I’m still on the fence about staining/painting it. These are the colors that I’ve chosen, should I paint.
Outside: RustOleum Professional in Royal Blue
Inside: RustOleum Professional in Almond
I still need to deal with the inside (I stripped/cleaned with the thing still full o’ crap! Too lazy to empty it :-/). Once it’s stripped/cleaned I will get to work on making a final decision for paint/stain.
And there you have it, more crafty mojo from DW 🙂
