I'm sure you've all been breathlessly waiting to see if I really did complete that Christmas Sign I said I was going to make at a Christmas In July chalk paint class. Well my friends, wait no more!
The big treat for me was that when I sent a text, with pictures of the sign, to my three and a half daughters (half is Gina, who has been Oldest Daughter's closest friend since 1st or 2nd grade) the girls all loved it and wanted one. Shocker! Usually my projects are met with less than enthusiasm from the Peanut Gallery!
The class only lasted 2 hours. Normally, between the white base coat and the red stencil coat, there would've been some sealer applied.
The sealer would've kept the red paint from bleeding into the white. We didn't have time for a sealing coat to dry, so we had to skip that part of the process.
The class was great fun with snacks and drinks and lots of joking. I've really missed being around groups of women since Wild Bill retired 5 years ago. When you're both retired, you tend to run in couples, not packs.
If you live in Northeast Texas area, I highly recommend you check out 2 Chicks And Some Paint in Denison Texas.
They've changed their name to -- 2 Chicks Home And Market -- to better fit with the direction their shop is going. I'll show you why in a future post. Right now I just want to brag about finally getting a project done!
Sometimes my "More Is Better" philosophy causes me to overdo. I'm at the point where the dark wax on the sign makes it look like a reindeer revolt trampled over it!
So I guess finished...but not finished. I'll be using more sandpaper and elbow grease to see if I can take some of the dark wax off a little, to make it look a little less dirty. Always something!
Thanks for dropping by!
