Today you guys get a preview of the project I’m working on. This month is Breast Cancer Awareness month and everywhere I look I see pink. Is it any wonder I’m going for the pink with this furniture project.
The JTS took several photos of me painting this piece. Recently I was asked by a company I’m doing some work for to send them some photos of me working on projects. Well, that’s a problem. You guys know I very seldom get in front of the camera. I’m much more comfortable behind it. So this is a heads-up….you may be seeing more of me on the blog.
The JTS is getting pretty good at using the camera. He sure comes in handy. He helped get this piece ready for painting too. It needed a few minor repairs.
This is the chest of drawers I’m working on.
These are my favorite paint brushes. I like Purdy® brushes because the paint goes on evenly and I get a smooth paint finish. I also like them because I don’t end up with brush hairs in my paint finish. I can’t tell you how crazy that makes me. Have you ever painted a wall, trim, furniture, or anything else and spotted paint hairs in your paint? Once the paint is dry, that’s it! You have to pull the hairs out, sand the paint down, and repaint. I hate extra work.
I use mostly angle type brushes. They work best for painting the detailed areas of furniture and for cutting in around ceilings and trim when painting a room.
I wash my brushes as soon as I’m finished for the day and hang them to dry.
What do you think of the pink? You guys know it’s not going to be a plain old pink piece of furniture. I’m not giving away any other details. I hope to have it finished by the end of the week.
Have a great day, Kathy
