Worked all afternoon yesterday on stripping this thing. I'm afraid there may still be places with a little gunk, but I intend to so a little light sanding and try the paint tomorrow.
All the curves and indentions in this thing are where the gunk lives. I've scraped it so hard in some places, I've taken wood away. So, I'm going to go for it with white paint on the bottom and try to stain the top again. If there are some dark places where the paint doesn't stick, I think it just may add some character. And if I can ever get to the paint store, I intend to get some glaze to antique it anyway.
And then last night, I finished this baby quilt I'm starting my ministry with. I'll tell you about it tomorrow.
I just pulled the backing up and over for the binding. Sure made it easy.
If I'm not commenting on all my May For Me partners, it's because I'm trying to stay off the computer more and do more constructive things. I know I'm missing some good posts, but I'll catch up girls. I can't stay away long or I go into withdrawal.
