Last week's progress was
so lame painting two coats on the vanity,
and it still needs one more....then the fun begins!
If you're catching up with the One Room Challenge you can find
(Playing in the mountains over the long President's weekend took priority
last week, and I'm feeling a tad guilty, but this week I'm on it!)
One of my favorite paints is Rustoleum's Protective Enamel, I love the high gloss,
lacquer like finish which, in my opinion, outweighs the inconvenience of the oil base.
It requires 24 hours drying time between coats, and the clean-up with mineral spirits is a pain,
but worth it in the end for the fabulous finish. I've used it on these two projects,
You can find a tutorial here.
If you look close you can see the reflection of the can on the vanity.
This detail is a booger! I used a stencil brush to get in the crevices.
I stole a larger mirror from my bedroom, the old one seemed too heavy and dark
for the new look...better?
My fabric for the window treatment arrived, my lighting is ready and waiting,
I have three rugs I'm losing sleep over - can't decide if I should go totally neutral or
throw in a punch of color...and then there's the art...I'm all over the place!
