Mandala Oak Lazy Susan

Have I told you how much I love mandalas? Yes I have :), You must remember my recent black lazy Susan,stenciling one on my deck, this sweet geometric coffee table, this cute round coffee table, this sweet lazy Susan and atop these saddle stools.

This solid oak hand crafted 18" across lazy Susan was another perfect canvas for my favorite mandala love.

The original finish had a few blemishes and uneven tone so after a light sanding an good scrub, a coat of Homestead House's ebony stain and oil finish was wiped on, excess wiped off and then left to dry overnight.

The gorgeous prosperity mandala stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils was up next.

Using Fusion Mineral Paint in limestone and a small stencil brush, the mandala was painted off center. When dry it was lightly sanded to smooth all edges and give a worn look.

First Custom of 2019 ~ Navy Dresser with Hutch turned Change Table

My first custom project of 2019 came in the form of a solid Canadian built dresser with hutch that is going to be used in a nursery as a change table then as a dresser. The nursery is space themed so a deep navy was chosen as the dresser color.

This is the customer photo, I missed setting it up for one once it arrived.

After hardware was removed and the pieces thoroughly cleaned, it was time to paint.

Fusion Mineral Paint  in midnight blue was rolled on with their microfiber roller. The smooth maple wood finish was the perfect surface to use this set on.

After first coat dried overnight I rollered a second coat on the next day.

The coverage with the roller and the deep navy paint was perfect.

The original hardware had a broken knob so I replaced it with these fabulous chrome spherical knobs from  D Lawless Hardware.
They work perfect in the space themed nursery, right?

To add a deeper richer color as well as a bit more durability to the dresser, I applied Fusion's Hemp Oil Finish with a lint free cloth. After a few minutes it was buffed with a clean lint free cloth.
See the top drawer with the hemp oil applied and bottom not yet.

And that is is... such a beautiful dresser, now to do the same on the matching crib.
