before, during, after

Busy, busy, busy.

Closet before (couldn't even shut it as there was so much crap inside):

We'll call this during (still need to make a shelf and hide the fuse box):

I used to really like purple. Still do, but when the spray paint calls.....

I painted it black, distressed it a bit, then finished with a couple coats of wipe on poly (my new best friend). I did the other frame with wipe on poly too, so the finishes would match. I still need something for the table.

This clock, already at the spray paint factory:)


Top of the hutch before:

After: (all of this was FREE!!--had the spray paint from an old project, had the 3 white things in storage for the last 2.5 years, had the cloth balls in the craft closet)

Remember the little tin holder thingy?

First I spray painted it an olive green, but it needed more work. I worked on it with some craft paint, then put some clear craft varnish over that so it was glossy.

It's holding my apron that was lost in the move. I found it last week while going through boxes of stuff looking for something to spray paint.

Tonight I started painting another basket. It's going to take a few coats as I am using regular old wall paint on it and want to get into every crack inside and out. Then I have 4 frames I want to paint. Then....maybe I'll catch up on sleep.
