>Renovation #1Yazım tarihi: Aralık 8, 2008
This picture was going to be taken without our cat “Kızım” but she insisted on jumping on the table and standing right there. After I loaded the picture, I realized the picture got more beautiful with her. She had a reason standing there!
I wanted to show the difference of old pieces after painting and renewing them. there is a white elephant object in front which I bought it from an exposition ages ago.It was brown in those days and thrown away somewhere in the house. The other was a gold painted frame one’s upon a time. It was okey for our ex-house but after moving to our new house, I am changing everthing bit by bit to white or to soft colors. So this frame had to be changed immediately!
Below you can see them when they were ugly!They are like shouting at me “Please paint me, paint me!”
After sanding them with a soft sandpaper and dusting, I painted them with a “primer paint” first. I always paint the old furnitures or objects with this primer. The brand name is “Trimetal Primer for Wood” . It is better to leave the object to dry for a day. Then I painted them white acrylic paint(Wicker White from Folk Art-Plaid) several times. And then in order to protect them I spayed them with “Clearcote Acrylic sealer by Plaid” 4 or 5 times. That is it! They look so beautiful in my sitting room.
Our cat “Kızım” is getting technological as well. Whenever I start writing for my blog, she immediately lays down on the printer and watches me from there. We have started a new job in our lifes together.Never mind I am very happy with her friendship!
