...and other days everything you touch turns to poo. I put my daybed together, with a fairly ordinary result.
I have severely under-cushioned, and my cushion arrangement was also tampered with by a three year old. I also need to soup up the other verandah furniture. One endearing point however, is that it is very comfortable.
If my daybed was less than spectacular, my kitchen stool makeover has been an outright disaster.
I wanted to spray them, so I was bound by the limited range of colours offered in spray cans. I'm not sure if the paint shop had fumes in it, but I decided 'Safety Orange' was the best choice.
How bad is that, and it actually looks much better in the photo!! I have had it back to the paint shop this morning actually, because some of the paint has bubbled up. They think I was just overzealous with my spraying. You have to be patient (my shortfall) and spray several very light coats, at least five minutes apart.
I have to sand off the bubbly paint now. Hells bells!
Not being sold on the Safety Orange, I had a look at our paint supply that we already have and made my second knockout decision in two days, an insipid grey called Dulux Chanson.
Now I have got two stools in two horrid shades of colour, each half painted. I can't stick them in the shed/too hard basket becaúse I've just picked up the beautiful new cushions for them. What will I do?
For now I think it's time to pack up the paint before I do any more damage!!
