What are you most proud of? My patience in waiting for each step to dry and cure. I wanted to rush into the next process, but I remember Anne Marie's instructions and patiently allowed the chair to dry before moving onto the next step. I used all of her techniques,glazing, painting, sanding,gilding, crackling, and even bond! I think using the bondo impressed my husband a lot.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use your imagination and see the potential in a unique piece. Don't give up and if you make a mistake, paint over it and try again.
