Well friends- I was so excited to show you some progress on this project. I have been working on secret items and I finally was able to do work that I could put on the blog! A little too excited I guess- because I broke it! Here is what the sunroom used to look like:
Katie does. When the crackle was still tacky I added a gray paint to the top of that. I let it dry overnight (you are right Katie- waiting for it to dry is the hardest part) and the next day I sanded the gray just a little bit. I was in love with it! I proudly showed it to my hubby and he liked it too. While setting it down after we had been admiring my handiwork I slipped and broke the glass on the front. So.......after much prying (tacky glue sticks really well to glass!) Here is the front now-I had to start all over with a new piece of glass. My hubby says that maybe I was meant to break it because he thinks you would be able to see into the room better if there was only one post in the middle instead of two. I think he might be right, but I'm still trying to decide. Anyhow, this gray paint treatment is what all the wood will eventually look like- what do you think?
My hubby made a cool little framework that drops right down onto the top of the box for some hanging plants to hang from. I can take the grid off if I really want to get my hands into the box for rearranging things.
