Before and after (sort of)...
As promised, here are our most recent projects from around the Aesthetic Outburst house. Our favorite neighbor, Jen, was throwing away this old table. I snagged it off the curb and it's been sitting in our attic for several months. After much nagging, poor (very patient) PRH sawed the table in half and pieced back together a much narrower table. Then he added wheels and a butcher block-ish top and passed it off for me to paint. I'm not crazy about the color (maybe a bit too country for me)...I wanted it to be super glossy orange, but couldn't find any orange enamel in Erie County and finally went with fire engine red.
Bad Abbey didn't take a decent side photo, so the true beauty of this before and after is kind of lost. But that's OK because for my second before and after I forgot to take the damn before picture! You'll just have to close your eyes and imagine this bentwood rocker covered in grimy disgusting itchy cream-colored fabric. PRH ripped off all of that grossness and I re-covered it in a heavy duty chambray denim. (What is with my taste for all things "country" lately? Anyone else having this issue???) Doesn't the color combo remind you of Levi's though? Gotta love those Levi's!
The arms are a little scratched, but I'm going to wait to do anything about it until after EZ E stops banging his toys on it. That'll give PRH a bit of a break. Actually, my mom and I were talking today about how much we like to do projects all of the time. I'm convinced that it'll keep our minds young. So, PRH should think of it that way...the busier he is, the better his mind. Ha! Works for me!
