before and after
I have had a few projects that I have been putting off for a long time. This little dresser that you see was one of them.
It was stained and rather in sad shape. It needed a bit of sprucing up. I purchased it from friend a few years ago for $15.00. It is wonderful for the storage but a girl wants things to be pretty, am I right? LOL
So three cans of spray paint and a set of new drawer pulls on clearance for $9.00. Grand total spent for the sprucing was $21.00. Not too shabby. I love it now.
Hubby called the other day while I was in town and asked me for a date. I was shocked and delighted. When I asked him where we were going he was very vague. I think he wanted to surprise me. He took me junking. Oh I delighted in this as it was always so much fun to hunt for treasures. We used to go every couple of weeks and haven't been to our normal haunts in over a year. Sadly our favorite spots are long gone. Only two places left and they aren't the best. I did manage to find a few treasures though. I can only show you one now. It is getting a bit of sprucing as we speak.
Both of these pieces are for storage in the new studio.
I paid 15.00 for this new piece and it will be wonderful for all my cling stamps in CD/DVD cases. Well the overflow of stamps in CD cases anyway. LOL You'll see.
I have a few more projects to complete before I can give you a peek. I thought these smaller projects would have been done 3 weeks ago. Rainy/damp weather has been the hold up. I don't have a garage and so a large box and my back porch is my painting booth. It is covered but rain still gets in most days. I actually had the last drawer on the first piece sprayed and I was most excited to have it done. While drying the rain/wind shifted and rain on wet spray paint makes a lovely crackle. I had to start over. Two days later it was complete. I shouldn't complain though as some of you girls are fighting bitter cold and snow. I have the bitter cold but no snow.
I am off to spray one more coat on this new piece before heading for bed.
Have a wonderful Holiday Monday.
