I cant believe its been 3 weeks since i last posted!! Where has time gone?! I was trying to be better about posting/blogging this year, but sometimes life just gets in the way!
I have been super busy in the shop. I just finished up a full kitchen cabinet job that took up almost 2 weeks, lots of late nights and working weekends, but that job was finished up on on monday and im now back in the shop – where i like to be :)
I have also hired (and fired) a few people. That has been tough! The first 2 just didnt work out, but i think my 3rd guy is the one. Third times a charm, right? It has been so helpful to have someone that is there full time to help out. Its scary to think about not only paying myself, but to pay someone else, but i just cant do it by myself anymore.
And then my segment on the Nate Show re-aired a few days ago, so HI everyone new!! I still havent gotten to emails from the 1st airing, now i have so many more!!!
Anyways – i was excited to get this little antique desk painted. Its probably not a color i would have chose for this desk (it was picked out by my client), but i love the way it turned out and will definitely be using the same color on another piece in the future.
This is a small desk, only a couple feet high. I love the girly details, especially the curvy legs. It was missing one drawer, so i took out the other one and built shelves to give it a finished look. I finished that off with a little trim.
After some shelves/trim…
Next, it was painted a fun green and then distressed.
Color = Mesclun Green by Sherwin Williams
Crystal Knobs = Hobby Lobby
I have also listed a few new things in the Sweet Pickins Shop, so go and check those out!!!
