1. Working with Mod Podge sucks!
2. Those crafty bloggers out there that make it look so easy to work with and have no wrinkles in their projects are LIARS!!
3. Plain bookcases might not be so bad.
I just spent 2+ hours on another Mod Podge project. It was a bugger! That saying "Practice makes perfect" does not apply here. It is full of wrinkles and bare spots, but I do have to say it is very cute! And of course, it matches the brown cart that I did a few weeks ago.
Presenting the old-tan-Walmart-put-together-with-a-million-pieces-bookcase (yes, I forgot to take a 'before' shot!) UPCYCLE! :
Bravo! Bravo! (yes, I am cheering for myself because this was such a BUGGER!!)
It may, in fact, be my last Mod Podge project. At least for quite a while. I'm hatin' the stuff right now.
I also completed two more projects this week. Here is a shot of a brown desktop officey type box (I don't know what it's called!) that I painted:
Now, yes, I realize that the 'after' shot is in front of the 'before' shot, and it should be the other way around, but work with me here. I'm new to all this.
Here's the lampshade I re-did:
Yes, you can see that I had already started painting it when I remembered to take a 'before' shot! But at least I remembered. And I got the 'before' shot first this time. Now, we are not going to mention the fact that it didn't occur to me to put the shade on the lamp and turn the lamp on to see if I had enough white coverage so that the pink gingham wouldn't show through before I did the polka dots and flowers....yeah, we're not going to think about that. It looks cute even if I don't actually USE the lamp, right??
(I realize that the second to last sentence in that paragraph is really long and probably a run-on sentence [bad teacher!], but it's late and I'm tired, so just deal with it.)
We'll see ya next time!
