I finally got to finish my chalkboard rooster I showed y'all a while back. The weather here in Virginia has been horrendous these past few weeks and because of that, I haven't been able to get outside and get anything sanded or painted. We finally caught a small break in the weather this past weekend so I took advantage of it! I'm itching to get started on my ladder back chairs. I was gonna paint them black, but have decided to try a black stain instead. I'm hoping it will give me the look I want. I've already bought the stain, just waiting for a nice, sunny day with warmer temps to get it done!
Here's a before pic of my rooster. I looked at a picture in a magazine of a rooster that I liked, then drew it freehand on a piece of typing paper. Hubby traced it onto a piece of wood and cut it out for me. We drilled a small hole in the bottom and attached a wooden dowel which we then attached to another piece of wood for the base.
And here he is all painted up! I just love the way he turned out and can't wait to display him in my "new" kitchen when I get it finished. Lord, my life is such a work in process ~ always something to finish!!!
Now, let's eat!!
I'm linking up to these wonderful parties:
Until next time. . .
