Meet Melodee

I'm naming this piece Melodee because that is the name of the wonderful friend that I bought this table from.  I wish I had an original picture.  When I got it there were no doors.  Just 2 tension rods holding a blue curtain in place.  I made new little curtains for it.  Then I spray painted it black a couple of years ago.  I had my bird cage on it for a long time.  Then last year we ended up with another bird, and then another. Furniture shuffled around and it ended up as a side table to my couch.  But, it was looking dark and drab.  I wanted to try my ASCP on something else so I grabbed this one. 

 Before ASCP and new curtains...

I didn't paint the entire inside.  I didn't want to waste any ASCP so I just wiped my brush off in there before I cleaned it. The curtains cover it anyways....

Check out those legs...

I used the Paloma ASCP.  Some Miniwax (light) and then a little bit of the dark ASCP wax.  This one didn't chip.  ASCP is trying to help me figure out why my other two pieces chipped.....I'll let  you know.  I made a new curtain.  The 2 end panels are actually painters drop cloth.  I just made new living room curtains out of the rest of that particular drop cloth :-)  Of course- this was a no sew curtain.  My poor sewing machine hasn't been used in a L-O-N-G time. I can't help it.  I love my hot glue gun.

Handy Hunk actually likes this one.  We don't always have the same taste.  I like collections, he likes minimal/bare... :-)  This little cutie is SO soft.  I just love petting her. Never thought I'd go around petting my furniture, but I am with this ASCP. Its so creamy smooth.  I just can't help it.

I'd be petting her too - she is such a pretty shape, and turned out great.
I have an award to pass on to five people, and you are one of my choices. I hope you will accept ?
love Fiona

Hi Layn, good job. I love the colour of the "cabinet". I can't wait for our Michael's store to open so that I can get some of that Anne Sloan paint. Thanks for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
