Hip Hip Hooray!

I've been chatty chatty about my upholstery class so now it's time for the reveal!  Well almost....... first I have to tell you about the process. It's three weeks later and a I couldn't be more pleased. Here is the rundown...
  1.  I painted the wood (obviously) using ASCP Old White, a concoction of a putty color, followed by ASCP Dark Wax and then Rub'n Buff. If you have not tried it PLEASE DO SO NOW! The Rub'n Buff gives such a nice shimmer.
  2. Paid for the class.
  3. Went to the class.
  4. I learned a lot in the class, some of it is COMMON SENSE boy am I a dummy :) I can say that now.....it's not as intimidating as you think .
  5. I met two very nice ladies in the class; we all have completely different projects.
  6.  Okay stop scrolling down to see the photos! I SEE YOU.

Don't you love the back? It was Frank's suggestion. I will do a post about Frank soon :)

 Call me crazy but I think it's very Candice Olson..........love her.
