Happy Tailgate Season Everyone!!  That's exactly what I had in mind when I purchased this piece.  

  There was just something about it and I couldn't pass it up.  It was hideous... believe me!  I visualized the swan in this one.  Here's the ugly duckling sanded...

I wasn't sure about color on this one.  That's why I asked my fellow followers.  The legs were brown.  I hated them, but wasn't sure if I painted them that they would fold back up.  I took the plunge.  I went with gold.  A good friend mentioned doing cream and beige stripes... and that's the makeover she got!  I primed it twice, painted it cream twice, and then added my Froggy Tape and painted the untaped with the beige.  I'm not gonna lie... I was amazed at the transformation myself.  

The piece is still not perfect, but you know me.  I love imperfections.  The inner part has a few marks that make it look like gold leaf.  LOVE!

Here's a painting tip for you:  instead of having to clean out your paint pan just line it with foil.  Let it dry and then toss it!!  They even have the single sheets at The Dollar Store!  Less cleanup is a must!!

My little wine bar.  There's plenty of room for an appetizer, too!

One more look of "The Swan."

This piece and many more will be at my Open House!!  I hope to see you there!!
