Hi all! I'd like you to meet Josephine. Josie for short.
She's tall, slender, has adorable legs, and speaks with an English accent. She is perfect!
I brought her home from the thrift store and brightened her up with a fresh coat of paint (the original paint was a yellowish-off-white), and I distressed her edges with my trusty sander and a razor blade.
After I distressed it, I rubbed the raw wood with a dark stain to make it show a little better.
Word to the wise: when working with stain, wear gloves or you will have the hands of an auto mechanic. I'm just sayin'.
I could just stare at her all day long! I think I'm in love!
