Well, it’s finally finished. I stayed home this weekend to get this done and to clean my house that is so trashed. My husband asked me nicely to please not build any more furniture for awhile. We’ll see. Anyway, I like it much better in person then in these pictures. The paint is a much deeper, darker red then what you see here. For some reason I’m just not as excited about this as I thought I would be. Maybe it has something to do with me dragging it up the stairs by myself. It took me about 15 minutes to get it up there, after getting stuck on the stairs for a couple minutes, then my son came home. I should know better and I do, but it doesn’t stop me. I had him carry the old piece back down. Now I have to do some touch up and thanks to these pictures I see I need to paint the inside of the legs too. So I guess I’m not finished. I did use Milk Paint for the first time and I love it. I will need to learn how to make this paint myself instead of buying it because I will be using this from now on. Thanks for looking.
