Summer is almost over and with summer my house renovation is getting close to an end. All the contractor’s work is done, so now is the fun part begins. Getting to decorate and plant some flowers is way more creative than dealing with sheetrock, insulation or electric work. I should be sharing each project of the reno soon.
During summer I was in the back burn. The house was such a mess that I honestly didn’t had any inspiration to do anything. Except for this little impromptu project that I did with my daughter. We were singing some songs and I was scratching some tunes in my guitar when she went to the playroom and picked up the old kids guitar that belong to his brother. When I saw that, I got an idea. Annie Sloan plaint. Why not? I had this pink color I got as a sample for one of their classes, so I thought I could put that sample to use…
The steps are as simple as painting any furniture with Annie Sloan. Preparation involved, light sanding, removal of stickers, putting holes. Once everything was to my satisfaction, I started painting it. the paint dries pretty fast. I used regular craft acrylic paint to dab the circles with a stencil sponge to give a little touch to the guitar… The strings are D’dario. They are a little high end ( but not expensive ) for a kid’s guitar.
