I suppose you will have no trouble understanding why I haven't done another painting...YEP, I'm a mess! I always know when it is time to re-organize and clean when my actual workspace shrinks to, well...NO ROOM TO WORK! Yep, again, that is me today! I always say I won't let it get this way again...but I get excited about a new something and then another something...and before I know it I'm dealing with piles!
SO...cleaning and re-organizing again...hopefully tomorrow I can start all new and fresh!
Since I have a bit of room in this blog spot...I'll give you a little update on the dresser I refinished a couple of weeks ago...Remember the black one?? WELL, the story didn't end there...It was an old dresser; had obviously been sitting in someone's musty basement for OH, I don't know...about a hundred years! In short...IT SMELLED AWFUL! The insides of the drawers were all musty and yucky, and since it is right by my side of the bed I could smell it...YUCK! I wasn't about to put anything in there...so I began to try to fix it...FIRST, I let it air out on the deck for a few days...drug it back in...NO LUCK...THEN I washed all the surfaces with pine sol...THAT DIDN'T WORK EITHER...SO, I finally stumbled upon an old method that antique dealers use...SO FAR IT SEEMS TO HAVE WORKED...so...TIP: Wash all the unfinished wood in DENATURED ALCOHOL...let dry...then spray two coats of SHELLAC and VOILA! So far this smells awesome!! WHEW...that was my yesterday...
HERE'S HOPING YOU ALL HAVE A SMELL FREE WEEKEND! HAPPY CREATING!!
