Perfect Day at "Bluestone House™"

The Furniture Refinishing Class was a success !!!

The Ladies renamed the Workshop to the "Furniture Spa"
Take your pieces for a fresh new look !!!

Thanks Ladies !!!

 Linda is re-purposing an old bedside table into a jewelry box !!!
She would like a shabby Chic "Reflecting Pool" tone with white crackle !!!


Laureen is updating a chair to use in her breakfast nook !!
She has 3 more to do before "Upholstery class" on June 29 !!!


Removing the old upholstery
Thousands of staples !!!

Sanding a little before painting helps it to stick
Painting white chalk paint on first
adding crackle medium

first coat - grey homemade chalk paint
Looking good Laureen !!!

Waiting for paint to dry !!!

top coat - Reflecting Pool !!!!
 I wanted to see how well the heat gun worked ..... WOW - I am amazed !!!

Sanding a little over the crackle to add even more depth
Looking Good Linda !


 What a Great Day of Sunshine - Good Food - Great conversation 
and a fantastic outcome on the pieces !!!

Only 1 spot left for the "Upholstery Class"
