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!
Turny ernie, i love it! Looks soo chic! Thanks for stopping over my blog! xox!ReplyDelete
i hate using polycrylic for that very reason- yellowing! i try to avoid it at all costs!!! ernie came out cute- the knobs are the crowning touch! :)ReplyDelete
That's interesting with the two colors. I like it. Maybe you could use it as a microwave stand, if it doesn't turn too easily.ReplyDelete
So eclectic chic! Loving the knobs....ReplyDelete
Two toned looks great. I love keeping the dark rich wood color on the top surface of many of my black pieces. If interested come check them out: http://4theloveofwood.blogspot.com/p/black.htmlReplyDelete
