While waiting for actual spring weather I finished another project.

We still have frosty nights here in the Northwest. Things are beginning to bloom and the air is fresh. I did make a trip to the ReStore store and found a white planter pedestal that needed some colorful paint. After deciding on an Art Deco theme and seeing how overly bright the paint was I ended up doing a whitewash and aging the paint with heavy sandpaper. The idea is to not take away from the beauty of the plant or candle that will rest on the top. I also added more decorations to the steampunk themed wall hanging. It was a fun project and a real keeper. Just like our tiger cat is.
Hoping spring finds you soon. June

Steampunk themed ottoman is done.

This ottoman is created out of old desk drawers. The legs are recycled wood and braces from odds & ends.

Check out the front of the corner chairs. The backside will have added decor soon.

I am excited about the way these chairs turned out. They are perfect for an artists studio. The next project is to finish the back decor on the chairs and create a matching ottoman. More updates soon.

The backside of the corner chairs are now aged and varnished.

I am so excited to have the back of the chairs looking so good. It happened that I had some Metallic Lustre' on hand and it worked perfect. Next step is to create the cushions and pillows. This project will be done before the New Year.
:-) The last photo is when I first started with the Metallic Lustre'. This product works on everything. Then I rubbed paint in around the gears to look aged.
