Who likes my new guitar?
I do, I do!
A few months ago, around Easter in fact, I came home from hanging out with my friends carrying this lot. My friend Robyn and her brother were throwing them out so I offered to give them a better home.
And give them a new look.
Starting with the whole guitar.
The first things to do was sand down the guitar so that I could paint it.
After a whole afternoon of using sandpaper and getting a very achey arm with little progress I was informed that my Grandad probably had a power tool for the job.
He did, and this is me using it.
Sanding done, it was on to the painting.
I started with a coat of primer which was an off white colour as that was what was in the garage.
Then I applied a few coats of white emulsion, again whatever I found in the garage.
Next I used acrylic paint to add some decoration to my guitar in the form of lovely pink flowers.
Then I varnished the whole thing twice using clear varnish that I found in, you guessed it, the garage.
And now it's ready to play!
