So when my daughter called me to say Dad has a frame he thought maybe you'd like to do something with, I thought " wow - this frame better be priceless "
Here is what she brought me
did have a good laugh about it ( my daughter and I ) when she mentionned that he wanted
to know if I could redo a dresser ( I think it was ) in exchange for it...............
Mr. Ex - you have more nerve than a toothache.
Anyways I dragged it up tonight - this is one heavy sucker - and started tackling it -
First I just slapped on some white paint
Already looking better - oh the power of a girl and her paints
Next I put a quick coat of Paris Grey
It doesn't matter what it looks like at this point - there are many more layers to come!
And there is no " method " either - like I said it's just literally slapping the paint on
Next color - Duck Egg Blue
The beginning stages of a " patina " -
Next I painted it with a metallic ( sage green sort of color )
|dry brushed some white on the details|
Think I may turn this one into a chalkboard................I took a lot of closeups because when I
try to get the whole thing you can't see the details..................
So Mr. Ex - let's say this frame was worth 50.00 in the state it was in - unless I can get 116,950.00
dollars for this baby - that's what you owe me now.................
You can pay me in 3 easy payments for your convenience.
Then and only then can we discuss my doing a piece of furniture for you!
LOL - as Forrest Gump would say
" sometimes there just aren't enough rocks "
Wasn't that a party?????
