DAY 3 for my TV Cabinet
Ha (I'm laughing now). I got up this morning at 5 a.m., made my lunch, got ready, programmed my first sub job in the GPS my son gave me for my birthday and headed down to the city. Got there way early so went to Starbucks; so proud of myself for being SOOO organized! I even threw in a small watercolor set and Dana Marie's two challenge post painting ideas to work on during my lunch time and free periods...SUCH A GOOD SAUNDRA! Went in, signed in, went to the classroom...and no lesson plans. No problem I say...I'm set if the teacher forgot...but just to check I went to the office to see if she left the plans with the secretary...Come to find out...I was there the wrong two days! My days to sub for this teacher are two weeks in the future!! ARRRRGGGGHHHH!! We all had a good laugh and I promised to return in two weeks. The good news is I met the teacher I am to sub for and we realized we'd met at orientation years ago, and I got a couple jobs from her for the future...AND the other good news is I got to come home and paint on my cabinet!! WIN, WIN!! (cept I probably appeared a bit goofy) (Oh well...that's artists right??) :)
SO...been working on my cabinet some more. The doors are just laid on the floor as they will be...just to get an idea how to proceed...The next photo is what it looks like after I lay in the shadows and light sides of the tree. Now they are waiting for all the aspeny detail!
The last photo is the process right after I paint the background. I lay in trees before I paint the shadows and lights. The pics are sort of backwards, but I think you get the idea.
Still considering green stain on bottom and stained a cherryish color on the top...we shall see. I have to find someone who will router the outside edges of the top...
So, now to read the instructions on the latest big screen we got just last night!! You can see the bottom of it in the top photo. Yep, we turned on our old dinosaur tv last night and the color was going out!! My hubby looked at me and said "I hate this tv!". I knew we were in for another trip and another try at a TV. This one is smaller; which is better for the room it is in...the other one was so big I felt a little like I was IN the TV. We decided to bite the bullet and get a Blue Ray DVD also...I need another degree to understand the set up!! We decided to take it a little at a time...WHEW...All this just to get me to paint our cabinet...OR...was it the other way around...I forget...
Anyway, happy painting to you all! I seemed to have LOST a follower, so we are back to 5 before the next thank you drawing...OK...who dropped out! :)
