Day 328: Finally Finished!

Hello wild ones! I’m back at work tonight, bleh, but I got the mantle dropped off yesterday to a happy client, so at least we have a blog entry that has nothing to do with my obsession with books or reading.

This is what we started with. A fake/space heater mantle built from pallet wood and plywood.

First the entire thing got 2 good coats of red paint.

And then I haphazardly slapped a coat of white paint over most of the piece.

Once that was done all I had to do was distress and apply my sealant . I took the easy way and just went balls to the walls with my electric sander rather than trying to do the entire thing by hand.

For this piece I mixed dark wax with clear wax to bring out the richness of the red as well as age the white.

And then my client sent me a picture of her finished mantle all set up in living room.

Until tomorrow, stay wonderfully wild!
