I have the Boyz II Men song stuck in my head because this little lady went to her new home today.I've had this piece hanging around for a while now. I wasn't very diligent in posting it for sale, and surprisingly she came home with us last week after our show. Needing room in my basement to move on to other projects, I needed stuff to move and posted her for sale again last week. Named after my favorite Golden Girl, Blanche and I have history. I picked her up last fall with visions of using her in place of a corner table we have now in our living room. I had her in the basement just waiting for Spray Paint Weather so we could dress her up. But then I got bored and antsy and we had some leftover coral paint from our bathroom so I painted her by hand.
I painted her while I was home with the flu for a week. And then my fever broke and I realized I probably shouldn't paint while I have the flu as I was delirious and high on meds, so I had to sand her and give her another coat. But she complied and was a gorgeous finished product.
I guess she hung around so long I never thought she'd leave. She went home with a pretty cool 20-something girl who drove all the way from Arlington in rush-hour traffic (it only took her 45 minutes!) to pick her up. She'll have a good life ahead of her; a life full of drunken debauchery and a hang-over or two. She'll flirt with boys, and make out with coffee tables. It's the life Blanche deserves.
I'm getting emotional over furniture.
