So on yesterday's post I showed you this
Now here's where my professionalism comes in - take careful notes - you never know
when you may need them -
I took a template ( sold in all cookware stores, lol )
and traced my oval pattern onto the face of the dresser with it - like this
the perimeter of it
Then I went to my professional supplies - and found a template for the Eiffel Tower
( found in all xmas supply stores )
I traced the perimeter of this on the inside of the oval pattern
and painted it ( painstakingly - I do not have such a steady hand - even when holding it flat against
a surface ) and ended up with this....................
The numbers were used with little tiny stickers - applied - painted on top - and peeled off
1889 was the year the tower was built ( I know, that was pretty obvious )
Then I went to town distressing - waxing - dark waxing - buffing - and she now looks like this
I then went to the wood filler cupboard to finish the top - but the wood filler cupboard was bare - so this
is going to have to be a 3 part post...............
And if I HAVE to say something nice about John ( not easy when you're menopausing you know )
All of this gets done in the entrance way of our home - and he has never - not once - not even under his
breath, complained about the mess, the inconvenience, the unsightliness of this. Even when I scream at
him to shut the door in case the neighbours see.
I shudder to think of think of what I would put him through if it were the other way around - as it is just crumbs on the counter can send me into a turmoil - wth is wrong with me?
( just keeping it real folks - you get to know me - warts and all )
