Its day 17… or maybe day 18 of lockdown… doesn’t really matter. Every day is a brand new creative experience.
Today I decided to give an old pedestal a face lift. It had been lying in a back room collecting dust.
I cleaned off all the cobwebs and gave it a coat of white paint.
My inspiration came from one of our FurniStik’s… “Rainbow Splash” which I haven’t as yet used.
Because the background of the FurniStik is grey, I chose a similar grey chalk paint for the top and short sides.
The “leg” of the table I painted with black chalk paint as I wanted the lumo colours to stand out really well. A black background rather than a grey background would be more effective.
Two coats of black paint and I was ready to boogy!
I pencilled in some vertical lines so that I had markers… I really didn’t want to go skew.
Glue gun on hot, I created vertical textured straight lines.
I started off at different heights with a blob of glue and then continued with a straight line. I wanted an upside down drip effect… similar to the picture I was going to use.
Once completed, I painted each glue line with a different colour. An easy task when using a thin paint brush.
If I happened to go over the line it wouldn’t have been an issue- a touch of black paint would fix it up.
The sides of the pedestal needed to be blended in with the top and the bottom, so I painted them with a black and grey ombre effect.
Now for the top. It was blank with just a coat of grey paint.
I took the back off the FurniStik and placed it in the centre.
I then smoothed it down… you might want to use a roller for this. Make sure there are no captured air bubbles.
Then I blended it into the background with more grey paint.
It looked great, but unfinished.
The edge I painted with pink and purple lumo.
Yey! All done!
I’ll let it dry completely and later paint a few coats of FurniSeal.
I can’t really say “Job well done” because it wasn’t a job. It was a few hours of Extreme Fun and Delight.
Cheers till my next creative adventure!
