Welcome back to The Creative Fox Den, everyone! To get everything back up and running, I’m finally writing the post for this table that I made before Cana came. Bad news: I don’t have all the specs for this table as I was in a bit of a rush putting it together. Good news: it’s so so easy that you can definitely put one together yourself.
Well, this series took long enough. I’ve actually had the painting done for quiet a while now but I had to put the video together and then there were other posts that I got caught up in, so that’s that. But this is the last instalment (at least for painting). I have two separate posts coming for the upholstery (which is currently done! Woohoo!) and I couldn’t be prouder of how it turned out!
Today I did the first coat for the top of the table… I freaking LOVE it. I thought this colour might be too dark, but it’s perfect! Couldn’t be any better. As you can see in the picture, it does dry lighter than it looks while still in the bottle. This is common with any paint but I hadn’t used this particular paint before so I wasn’t sure. Read more
This dining room set is going to be EPIC. I am so out-of-this-world excited! When I first laid eyes on this set, I fell in love. My husband and I joke all the time that our house is the house Kijiji built. I refuse to pay overpriced retail prices, so I go to tent sales, store clearances, garage sales (my favourite Saturday activity!) and I thrift as if my life depended on it. Hunting items down on Kijiji is almost a full time job. New things are loaded every minute and the good items are gone just as quickly. I have a whole system for snatching up the best deals, but that is a topic for another blog.
