Today, after work and then coming home to do more work on cabinets and unpacking for a couple hours, I decided I needed to start a for-fun project that I could reward myself with after a day of necessary tasks. I needed something that is still productive, but that I can look forward to in a way I just don't to removing tupperware from a corrugated cardboard box and placing it in a cupboard, and folding and searching out homes for endless numbers of towels and sheets. I choose a super simple project, one that would take up little space in our chaotic house right now, and little space in my already slightly overwhelmed and full-to-the-brim brain.
This little dresser has been made over already.
It used to be just plain old naked pine, with brass handles. A while back I stained it this dark mahogany colour and changed the brass handles to round, chrome pulls.
Time for another change.
Today I sanded and cleaned the heck out of this little piece. Then I primed it. I primed it good.
In a couple more days I should have the time to do it all up as I am envisioning it in my head right now. A few hints: Bright and cute and cheerful.
I know, you might not be able to wait a couple days to find out what I do. I am sorry for that, but it'll all be worth it in the end, I promise. Plus, it's just quittin' time. Wine and left-overs and Sex and the City re-runs, here I come!
Till next time, folks!
