My painted chair & plant pot..........................

Hi everyone,
I hope you are all keeping well,
I'm sorry to have to tell you I've been diagnosed with depression.......
I couldn't go to class today,
As secretary to the Crafty Crafters group,
I've booked a 49 seater coach to Harrogate,
But I wont be going....

I'm posting these photo's of a furniture painting class 
I attended several weeks ago....
(This is where I suffered a bad cut to my head)

Putting the finishing touches to a chair,
I primed it, Then painted & waxed It....
Then the final touch was to sand it, To give a distressed look....
I didn't have the DISTRESSED look at the time.............

This is a plant pot I started painting at the class,

I didn't like it, So I decided to finish It at home,
I gave it a Crackled effect.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog,
I really appreciate your support,
I will be posting when ever I can.....
I'm so sorry if I haven't visited your blog lately....

Lots & Lots of love,
Sylvia X
