LIKE A VIRGIN


LIKE A VIRGIN -  YES THIS IS THE FIRST PIECE
I HAVE EVER PAINTED WHITE. SO IN HONOR OF
THAT I DUB THIS PIECE OF FURNITURE
MADONNA
I PAINTED HER WHITE AND DISTRESSED HER
AND STAINED THE TOP, WHICH I HAD TO SCRAPE OFF THE LAMINATE WHICH COVERED THE WOOD TO DO SO. I LOVE HOW MADONNA TURNED OUT. THE FRONT SECTION I MADE IT LOOK A 
LITTLE BIT LIKE A WHITE WASHING EFFECT BUT
ONLY ON THE CENTER. AND THE KNOB, IT
DIDN'T HAVE ONE SO I USED AN OLD ANTIQUE
PULL WHICH I FOUND ANTIQUING ONE DAY.
IT WAS WEIRD, I DID'T HAVE ANY INTENTION
OF PAINTING IT WHITE BUT SHE KINDA PICKED
HER OWN COLOR AS WHEN I PANTED THE PRIMER IT
JUST LOOKED LIKE SHE WANTED TO BE WHITE.
THIS WILL BE MY FIRST OFFICIAL PIECE I'M
SELLING. I DON'T WANT TO BUT I HAVE NO
MORE ROOM AT THE INN. LOL!

HERE IS MADONNA BEFORE SHE WAS FAMOUS..


AND THE NEW INFAMOUS MADONNA...
WARNING- I TOOK ALOT OF PICTURES








THE INSIDE HAD TO SHOW YA!




HOPE YOU LIKE MY FIRST!!!

  2. Oh yes!! I love Madonna!! She's gorgeous! How in the world did you keep the wood color from seeping through your white? I'm working on a piece right now that I want to paint white and the wood keeps bleeding through! Anyways, I adore it! Love the staging too!
