I wanted 2...but 2 wasnt offered at the garage sale and I knew that probably there wasnt 2 in the set. She was solid..which is perfect...and she was $5 which is perfect-er. I hauled her home, threw her beside my bed right away and (Im so ashamed) she sat there in all her plain ol' pine ugly knob glory for *cough* years. Why is it, or am I the only one, who does anything wonderful with the master bedroom last..after all the rest of the house has been decorated and redecorated and if we're being really honest...even dusted 12 times to the master bedrooms one? I dunno...I dont know the answer but I do know that one day I woke up and hauled her outside to get a good sanding. I knew what I wanted. Turquoise and shabby. I had 2 different turquoise colors so I used them both. I had purple paint left over from painting my kitchen. I had lime green paint left over from my bathroom. I had lil pretty paper sheets left over from something I have no idea..I had black paint, I had sandpaper, I had glaze. I had a pretty glass knob. I got to it. At the end, she looked perfect. Exactly like she had been up in my Grandparents attic for years..
K! Couple things....please ignore the black cord in the background....the damn things you notice after you take the photo, download the photo, crop the photo and post the photo...Nuther thing....no. I did not sweep my floor either. Thank you.
Its very layered in color...like its been 200 different shades throughout her life..Hindsight..I should have beat her up a bit with a hammer to give her some scars...but..I love her just the same.
That wordy framed thing really does sit on my bedside table....The Mister and I eloped...it was very spontanious and so part of that was writting our own vows. He's not a scream his feelings from the rooftop sorta guy, but he's an amazingly talented writer and his vows were beautiful and awww-ing and perfect. Well, I framed them..along with the wild flowers that Bunny picked for me that day and this my very favorite thing!
