HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Perusing the internet for art to bring in the new year and found this…
The old year behind us… A new year in front of us…
Moving forward in 2015
Looking back, this year has had many challenges & changes. A major Change, in June we made the decision to discontinue our CeCe line of paint and to carry American Paint Company Paints!! We want to thank you all for your support on this decision… it has been overwhelming! We can’t keep our shelves stocked with American Paint Company Products! Thank you!
The challenges we have faced have been health related both for us and family members. We were not able to do as many workshops as I had hoped, and those we did schedule did not fill up… this was a blessing in disguise… on one hand it was discouraging, but on the other hand…. We were not up to teaching and sharing our zest for painting. I am so ready to put 2014 behind me!
Finally… getting a little “American Paint” painting time!
Between Christmas and New Years I painted two bed-side stands that I picked up at the Re-store before Christmas. They are that ugly white 70’s paint…but I love the retro look and all wood, you just can’t beat that. With the end of the year, the Christmas holiday, and tax time looming around the corner, all I could see was red! American Paint Company’s Fireworks Red that is!
After painting the top and drawers… I decided I needed to include black… I really did not want to see that 70’s white. So I painted the rest in Cannonball black. When I started painting Fireworks over the black on the door front… I really liked how Cannonball came through…. another change in plans…. To match the top and drawer that I had painted Fireworks Red first, with the door, I added another coat of Fireworks, and while it was wet, blended Cannonball on it.
I let everything dry over night. The next day I sanded everything down with a sanding block. You can see in the photo, that after sanding the Cannonball it had a white haze… not to worry, after a coat of American Paint Company’s Hard Coat, you get that beautiful Cannonball black back.
I decided not to change out the hardware… I especially love how the handles repeat the squares in the door fronts. I did mix a little APC Gold Mica with APC Hard Coat and cover the handles.
I was really going for that oriental pop of color! However with it being so close to the Christmas season…. some of my friends are seeing the guy in the red suit! What do you think? Both end tables are at Antique Marketplace of Lemoyne!
