Here is my most recent moon. It is a miracle I have one ready for eeBay this week as I still have orders I'm working on and a home project left to finish and STJ update...which I did finish and I am so excited but I think its a tad early for a sneak peek yet! Here is the moon...he was photographed at night so his tone looks warmer than he actually is, he is almost white, a very pale grey, and very large, 15 inches deep!
I can't begin to tell you the amount of dust involved. I decided after getting them down to a reasonable level of new wood/smoothness that I am actually going to pickle them white for a cottage-ey look...(it would take many more hours and mess to get them perfect enough for a clear finish, time I don't have right now!) The walls are a paler aqua than appear here and I think the combination will look fantastic for our girl's room, anyway. I still have to put the pickling stain on. I think I'm going to mix a white glaze up myself, slather it on with a cheap mop then apply atleast three coats of polyeurathane. I also painted a beautiful black and khaki colored diamond pattern on our long L shaped hallway, (and another pattern in another bedroom) years ago. The hallway has held up wonderfully! I love PAINT!!!
A funny side note. The other night the kids and I went for an after dinner trek, late sunset.
We got to the woodsy trail and it was absolutely wet and muddy with puddles. Cassie asks me ..."Can we take off our shoes?" I said "sure" She said "Mom, thats why I love you, you let kids have their rights!"
