Bring on the varathane

Today I finished up my cabinet. First I shabby chic-ed the legs and the edges. I like how the shabby chic finish helps define the design of the legs. This cabinet is quite the odd duck, isn't it?

Next I got out the varathane and started on the top and worked my way down.

I added some pencil crayon to the edges of the triangles to help define the edges. The varathane definitely gives the acrylic paint a richness.

Here's the cabinet all done. Tomorrow I'll get it home and find a place for it. Then I can add stuff to the top and to the shelves.

Next project will be these cars. I know I want to paint them bright colours but I'm not sure how much detail to add. We'll see how it goes. I'm looking forward to making them fun and cute!
