|First side done. Use of flattened Pepsi boxes in lieu of drop cloths is standard at our house. |
Louis Blue loves to hang out with Old White.
The first coat, which turned out to also be the final coat.
The hinges are covered with Glad Press n' Seal.
Then I tried different wax treatments.
I used clear wax and added Old Violet to some, Paris Gray to some.
In the end I decided to use the wax tinted with Old Violet on the whole thing.
I still need to fix the bottom drawer to match.
It is still wearing the Paris Gray wax treatment.
I may still change the panels on the doors and top drawer.
I am thinking about painting them back to plain blue and stenciling.
Or doing a sheet music treatment with mod podge.
Or piano player rolls.
What do you think? Would you have painted this?
