Here’s the story of my church pew project:
My dad gave me this pew a few months ago [my super hero hubby was like, “Awesome. A church pew. Where exactly is that going in our house?” I assured him that I had a plan… which I did… kind of]. However, I knew that no matter where it went, I wanted it to be bright and cheery [and white].
Here’s the funny thing [when I say "funny" I mean "pitiful"]. Remember when I spray painted that zebra striped entry table, and I specifically said, “However, I will caution you that if you are doing a large, totally flat surface [table tops, the side of a dresser, etc.] it is difficult to get a really nice, even finish using spray paint [which is my professional way of saying don’t use it.].” Well, I decided that rules are just made to be broken and went out and bought about 150 cans of white spray paint [actually 5 or 6]. Soooo, three cans of spray paint later, here’s what my pew looked like:
As it turns out, rules are not made to be broken. Rules are made to be followed in order to make life easier and less complicated. [Don't worry, the irony was not lost on me that I learned this lesson while working on a CHURCH pew!] D’oh. Back to the store to purchase semi-gloss latex exterior paint [I chose exterior paint because it’s more durable]. A few coats of paint later and, voila- a cheery, happy church pew, ready for my home [now...where to put it?!].
