85% of the time I end up loving the ideas I have.
But, sometimes I like the idea by my execution is off.
Sometimes, I have to re-do what I just did.
I worked on two “re-dos” today:
1) My dining room table:
Refinishing my dining room table was one of the first projects I blogged about. I even admitted that I was a little worried about the stain.
Well, here is what it looked like this morning:
There were a few issues:
can you see it?? My table was fuzzy! There must have been lint or dust in the air when I put the poly on … so there was all this stuck on lint like stuff. When you rubbed your hand across the surface it felt bumpy and kind of dirty. NOT GOOD! I had in my head I would wait until Spring broke before tackling refinishing it. This time – outside!
Then this happened:
The poly started to crack off. Oh, no! I was so upset when I saw it. You can see where I rubbed my nail over it to try to see what was going on. This I could not live with until Spring. So today we took to sanding the almost new finish off.
Here is where we are now … waiting for the stain to dry.
Yes, I still want these words above my kitchen doorway. But, maybe not so big. A little smaller, and maybe a script.
I bought some black vinyl to cut the words out using my Cricut. One I get another coat of blue on, and let it dry I will add the words. (DONT LOOK: you can see me and my work sweats in the mirror!)
I will follow up when my re-dos are DONE!
