How to Get Rid of Bingo Wings

I have figured out exactly how to get rid of BINGO WINGS.

You know what I am talking about.

These beautiful horrible things. UGH!

They tend to show up around 40 when everything starts to go to hell in a hand basket.

So if you are 39, guess what you have to look forward to.

Not kidding.

Anyway…this is the answer.

Gather your husband, leave the kids at home and jump in the truck.

Jump in the truck and head to the nearest Estate Sale, Thrift Store or Goodwill.

That is my husband.

He keeps asking why I didn’t pick up a “lighter” hobby like tatting lace or something weird like that.

So to get back on track.

You have your husband, you have a truck load of furniture and you have one of these…..

With a can of this…

And after sanding the rough and bumpy spots, no cheating by using an electric sander.

You start to paint.

Back and forth with the brush.

Back and forth, feel the burn.

Once it is dry and looking wonderful you are going to make it even more wonderful by grabbing one of these…..

A SANDING BLOCK.

Again, sand every surface of the paint you have just applied.  

Heavier in some areas.

Make it smooth.

Are you starting to feel the burn?

Switch arms every so often to spread the joy.

You are heading to the home stretch….

Grab your wax and round brush..



and rub that wax all over the entire surface of the dresser, small sections at a time.

Then take your rag and rub the entire surface AGAIN.

Seeing a pattern here?

Bet you look like this now don’t you….

I am telling you….gets rid of Bingo Wings.

That is what was running through my head as I was finishing this piece.

There is a lot of surface to cover on this baby.

The Coco Dresser with its Old Ochre on the drawers.

Isn’t she pretty?

With her original hardware,

and her swivel mirror.

Just beautiful.

The before….

The after.

And now she needs a home.

Her job is done, she got rid of my Bingo Wings!
