Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful week. I am delighted to see many new faces in my friends list and thanks a lot for showing your interest. For the past 2-3 days I really had a lot of fun repainting an old furniture.
This ugly piece of furniture lies in our balcony and was used to store old shoes, newspapers, etc. Long time back I had an idea to repaint it but when I told my husband he said that I don't have to spend my energy and money on it coz he was anyway going to throw it out. Now, that is not at all acceptable, not without at least trying to do something about it, but then I wasn't that interested, so I just left it alone.
Suddenly once again after seeing so many makeovers in the net I decided to give it a try. My kid got so excited and he even suggested some bizarre colours but half his excitement drained out when I picked up this off-white colour. I was planning to bring this furniture inside the house and I didn't want it to look outlandish.
There were many holes and gaps, but I didn't do anything about them. I can manage to become a painter but not a carpenter. Apart from fighting with me for the bigger paint brush that I had, my son too helped me. After completing the basic painting part I thought it would be more interesting if I painted some picture on it. You know, I simply love these saltbox house pictures and so I decided to paint a house and write a beautiful quote.
Painting was easy though I was not able to draw straight lines, but writing was difficult. I wrote once. It looked bad, so I repainted on it. Waited for it to dry and wrote again. This time it came out okay but the letters were too small. I didn't want to paint over it again and wait for it to dry, so I left it as such.
I thoroughly enjoyed painting the picture and I couldn't just stop with one. I thought I would do two more small picture at the sides. So I drew this mushroom on one side at the top and a saltbox house at the other. Then my son wanted me to draw for him a barn with a tomato plant growing nearby. I agreed to draw the barn but not the tomato plant.
I really love the way it looks now. It's adorable. Don't you agree?
