Fangle is a word. Honest. Google it. I can wait.
fangle (plural fangles)
That sound you hear? That’s the heavenly choir, rejoicing for me.
If you’ve been following along, you know I refinished a pair of Sally Anne Lamps that were intended to grace the sofa table I didn’t own. For some reason, I seem to design the little stuff first – build a whole “scape” intended to grace furniture that doesn’t yet exist in my home. It’s a sickness.
Enter my lovely little Malm. In faux beech veneer. Nice lines. Extra storage that can hide out of the way if I need it to, or show off if it’s actually pretty stuff.
But it’s beech. (blech)
And it’s fake veneer. (double blech)
But it was $30! (YAY!)
So, now the conundrum. How the blue blazes do I refinish fake veneer? Is there anything I can use to “stain” it so it will look like dark wood? Or do I bite the bullet and paint it?
If I paint it, what color?
So many decisions. One nice piece. And my lamps are excited, too!
I’d really love to see your comments on the projects I do and the ideas I have. I learn more from critiques than praise, but, honestly, I adore praise (and who doesn’t?).
Thanks for stopping by.
