Meet Turny Ernie before (and Mac's head):
Now, Turny Ernie was going to replace our current TV stand, but he was too tall. So, I decided to paint him anyways and freshen him up. Unfortunately, I painted him without priming. Then, I put on a coat of polycrylic. Guess what happened!!? Ernie got yellow fever. Yellow! Gross! For me, frustration! After Christmas (when I felt more like retackling him), I gave him a nice coat of black. To be honest, Turny Ernie isn't my favorite--most likely because he's not really my style. Or maybe it's because I liked him better with the pale blue/gray that I gave him first. But, he had to go and get yellow on me. What a rebel!
