We woke up today to a dusting of snow on the ground and flurries in the air, can you believe it! I guess that is what we get for living in upstate NY. So I did not work in the back yard today. We cleaned the house, Chris hung my window frame on the porch and I am painting the upstairs bathroom. It is just a small half bath so it only took about an hour. I am waiting for the paint to dry so I can finish it up.
I want to show you my dresser/cabinet re do. I saw this at Salvation Army on Monday, was immediately drawn to it as I have been looking for something like this to paint. I didn't buy it that day though, I am not sure why the price was right, $6.99. I kept thinking of it all week and went back Friday and it was still there. I was both surprised and not surprised if that makes sense. It was a cheap piece of furniture but very ugly. So I bought it and brought it home. I removed all the old hardware and filled the holes(the were right down the center), sanded it down and began painting. I am very pleased with the way it came out. There are no handles on it yet, I would love some glass ones, but at about $4.00 a piece and I need 8 that is out of my price range. So I am probably just going to get the plain wood ones and paint them black. They will go on either side of the numbers. The feet also need replacing, I will be looking for round fence finials to use, it will bring the cabinet closer to the ground.
