Yep-you read it right. This is a 10 foot! church pew. I don't think many people can say they've painted one of these babies. :)
It had a yellowish/greenish thin wash over the wood.
We warmed it up with a golden yellow color. After I finished painting it the color was just a little too bright and it didn't "feel" right for what this piece is, so I decided to glaze it with straight stain. Love the color so much more like this and now it feels like what it is (which is an old church pew!). :)
Absolutely am in love with this end piece. Beautifully ornate, curvy, and chunky!
Also love the distressing on this one! Used a soft, dark brown primer because the wood was blond and the distressing wouldn't show very well under the yellow otherwise.
Hard to take pics of something this big! I can't wait to see it in it's new home instead of my ugly shop!
