I am about painted out! I have been painting furniture all week with the intention of having the studio completed (almost, at least) by this weekend. Apparently, I forgot to run this by Baby Hughes who has not been feeling well and now has an ear infection. He has decided that only Mommy can make him happy. He is on my lap as I write this while Mr. Hughes is out picking up his prescription and a copy of the December issue of Vanity Fair... but that is entirely another topic *wink* (Let's just say that Mr. Hughes is a wonderful, understanding man!) Even with all of that going on, I have managed to paint everything that I needed for the studio... the chairs need one more coat. And, I wanted to show you the table that is going to be in there... it takes up the almost whole room.
Now I am sure that some of you are groaning inside and thinking, why oh why is she painting that? It is okay... I was thinking the same as I was painting the primer. This table, although lovely, has seen better days. There are chunks out of it and scratches and I really didn't want to get into refinishing it to its former glory. It is just what we needed though.... a big enough table to spread out our projects .. especially Mr. Hughes... he has a little problem with paper.
And, I had to rethink the cane chair once I put the table in there. It fit but there would have only been room for one chair and since I convinced Mr. Hughes to give up his office and move into the library, I didn't think it would be fair to hijack the whole room. (giant run on sentence... I am kind of proud!) Anyway, I am using a few chairs that I brought in from outside.
I had painted them creamy white and covered the seats with coffee sacks. They didn't like the humidity, so I had alot of veneer to take off... they are a fine example of shabby!!
I still hope to get this all finished this weekend... at least the big projects.
Oh, and if you happened to click on the link up there and are thinking I am terrible person for painting the table AND sending my husband to pick up that magazine... I just want to let you know that Mr. Hughes himself has a very large crush on Patricia Heaton and Zooey Deschanel.
