Remember when I posted about how Cason was helping me start a really great project, by painting this board?
Well, in reality, it wasn’t just “a board”… it was THIS board. Actually… a table top from IKEA, that I found for about $6.00. I knew I could use it somewhere cool… NOT as a table top!
Well, doing exactly what I told him to… Cason just went to town with some high gloss gray paint.
He DID question my “no primming” tactic, but I just said…
“pfft, pfft!… no need!”
Don’t you HATE when husbands are right?
Check out what happens if you don’t sand and prime your projects properly…
It was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen! After 4 days of drying… the paint STILL just peeled right off, in sheets! Boooo… PROJECT FAIL!
I was NOT happy!
As I was yelling at the girls to get in the car, because “Mommy had to run to FREAKIN’ Home Depot, to pick up a new FREAKIN’ board, for her FREAKIN’ project, that she just ruined…!”
… I started backing out of the driveway, and this baby caught my eye…
Propped up behind some other wood, was a scrap piece of plywood from another project I used. My thoughts:
“FREE!? yessss… I will MAKE it work!”
Thanks to my neighbor Ronda, and her table saw, I only needed one small cut, to make this new piece of wood work, for what I was doing.
And I have to be honest. The direction that this project is taking, is SO MUCH cooler, then the idea I had before 🙂
Lesson Learned from THIS craft fail:
brought to you via poem, by yours truly … hee hee
Sometimes Craft Fails, can leave you biting your nails.
When throwin’ a fit or gettin’ lit… just chill out, and think for a bit.
You might have something ’round the house you can use,
that will pull you right up, from your “crappy craft blues”
