I'm a little hesitant to publish this post - I don't know if I've gone overboard with Nancy from Nantucket !!!
I kind of love what I did - and I kind of don't .................
So opinions kindly needed !
Remember I mentionned that I wasn't finished with her yet?
Well I wanted to put a transfer on her - BUT IT DIDN'T WORK OUT THIS TIME !!!
I did everything I normally do - just like I did for this ( HERE )
and this one ( HERE )
But for some reason everything came off this time - my toner is low - could that be a reason for it I wonder?
So I sanded it all down - and redid the top in the same " beachy " finish with the full intention of just starting all over again ( it's gonna be rough - so rough - but we're gonna make it )
But then my mind drifted for a moment and that's all it takes - really - just a moment and I'm running in another direction completely ( you should have seen me playing baseball as a kid ) I really should be on meds - I'm like an A.D.D. furniture painter.
Beachy looking furniture makes me think of the ocean
The ocean brought this song to mind - and the rest is history................
Here's a tip thrown in for good measure - when stencilling words on a surface I always put some painters tape on lightly - to keep the lettering straight -
Do I need to distress the words?
Do I need to to eliminate the second sentence?
Do I need to eliminate the entire wording?
Do I need to get a life?
Whenever one door closes - I hope one more opens...........................and when you open the " door " of
Those are shadows in the left hand corner - and not my feeble attempt at drawing mountains................
Words worked on this one - and it sold relatively quick ( HERE )
So maybe it can work again,
when I add words - obviously I add words that I love and that mean something to me and so................
I want to keep this one :)
Have a great day all
( I hope you dance )
