" The before color-nice, but ready for an upgrade."
"Geezzz Loueezz.....I have got to tell Jennifer about this woman hiding in the layaway area. Trying to act like she is playing a family game. Come on now-Triple your Score and Pick up Sticks-sounds like the movies my ex checked out the day before I kicked him out!!"
"Doesn't this sign speak for itself. Would you ever go into a place where you are greeted with this man's face?" I better get used to it because it is in the booth right across from me. "
" OK now, I have seen some strange things, but this takes the cake!" And you guessed it, this booth is to the right of my new booth. Wow! Am I in for it or what? Let's see now, I have the grinning perv staring at my booth with his vacancy sign. And I have the odd couple next door who must think that Lone Star is a cheap motel. It really doesnt surprise me at all...I remember catching Barbie and the Hulk in a precarious position just a few short weeks ago." What is this world coming to?"
I am in the slow process of beginning the initial stages of painting my new booth at Lone Star Antiques. The picture of the booth I am posting tonight is the before picture. The booth had already been papered with the brown bag type paper. I myself prefer to paper with plain old tissue paper because it seems to give a delicate cracked egg appearance and is very easy to paint. Anyway, the buttercream yellow is now painted an antique white cream. It did end up being a little lighter than I wanted, but that is where the stain will come into play. Today I took my trusty projector and with my transparency of a french rubber stamp (french script) I used a brown acrylic paint pen to trace the words onto the wall. OK, tomorrow I will head back and stain the walls to see if I like the effect, and to see if the brown script disappears with the brown stain-I hope not. I am also posting some pics of my surroundings near the booth.....Sometimes crazy things go on in dealers booths..........
