The Big Reveal

A big finish! I'm so happy with it. Last night I finished the last cushion, which of course is the best one. After practicing on the other two, the last cushion is perfect. I applied 5 coats of clear coat. It is now smooth as butter! The only problem I have with it is, that the wood on the bottom isn't as high a quality as the birch on top. I'm telling myself that the bottom will be covered by those leather boxes and over-sized books. So no one will know, except that I just told you.
Now to make those accent pillows. They will probably take just as long as these cushions did, you know Murphy's law. So that's my plan today. Pillows! Plus a cousin gave me some fabric to make her a couple of pillows, so I might as well make a day of it.
(Just to be on the safe side, I'm going to wait at least a week before putting any quilts behind those doors. I don't want all my hard work smelling or heaven forbid, get stained)
Take care , Brandie
