I found this lovely 2 tiered stand at my fave thrift store for 4 bucks, and didn't hesitate to get it. I thought, plant stand, something for the bedroom, whatever. Really it was the two tiers and the pointed sides that sold me. There's something middle eastern or mediteranean about it to me, but S thinks it looks like it belongs in a church.
I was really excited to work on it this weekend. In fact, i was determined to strip it, primer, paint, and do something decorative on top during this long weekend. Totally feasable.
S tried to take it apart but said it would ruin the wood if he undid the screws. So stripping had to take place as is. Have i mentioned i've never done this before, but how hard could it be?
We have purple, then red, then green. That green isn't going anywhere, i think it's stained the wood.
Darn those sides! I needed to walk away, calm down, and then i went back out to sand. Nothing. It needs more than i can give it. I was just going to prime it so I didn't have to look at the mess that it now is, but S convinced me to wait til he sees it. Then he will break out the big guns. Or tell me there is nothing there can be done.
This looks like a crime scene, but i promise no one was harmed in the stripping of this piece! Where's that yellow tape when you need it? Mission un-accomplished. Poo.
