Bed Pieces Project 2

This bed project is proving to be a lot of fun. I had painted in the sand waaaay to dark, and immediately went into emergency mode. I grabbed the sander & took most of it off (first picture). Second picture is me sanding (a little later in the project) and the last picture is that really heavy, thick sand color. That thick paint was not what I had intended.

I learned something new: make a mistake on wood and you can sand off the acrylic paint. I'm not sure about oil paint because it takes forever (six months or more) to dry, depending on how thick it was laid down. Hooray for the flexibility of acrylics!

Stay tuned!
