For the most part…usually…well…almost always…pretty much – my paint projects go off without a hitch – some of course are a little more involved than others, some take a little more time than planned, some are easier than planned – BUT – some turn into BIG FAT pains in my booty.
Painting is not always fun – of course putting on the paint is fun, taking the “after” shot is fun, putting money in my pocket for my hard work is fun – but when mess ups happen – NOT FUN. Not fun at all.
Take these 2 projects for example. This is what i am working on right now – i am on break now, so i thought i would share my misery :)
This table i seriously got about a month ago – yes, i have had it for a month(its a refinish that i am doing for someone). We thought that it was all wood, so i was just going to stain the top. Well – its not all wood…wood and MDF. So, we decided to paint it black again – didnt like it. I decided to repaint with an enamel paint so it was more like the factory finish – didnt like it. So now its being sanded down to try another option – wish me luck. Poor lady without a table – but she is very understanding :)
Then this cute little table was dropped off for a simple repaint. For some reason my primer bubbled – so guess what i am doing today. I grabbed my trusty cleaning toothbrush and have spent lots of time cleaning the primer out of all those little details. Ugggghhhhh……
doesn’t this look like fun??!!
i have lots to say on this whole painting thing – but i will save that for another day. But – i just wanted to show that its not all pretty in the furniture painting biz – not pretty at all…. :)
