I dont know how fulltime bloggers do it. I stay home yes and most of my week is devoted to painting furniture, but I also have a daughter and a husband and dogs, friends, laundry, and myself to give time too...and sometimes, blog writing (and dinner) fall to the wayside. I am in awe of blogs I read that are fresh every single day with amazing creative things linked up to 57 link parties..the children are chalk full of mom-quality time, the house is clean, they have dinner, there's time to excersise regularly, and go on dates with the husband... Im also sure theres some sorta volunteer work getting done too. A-mazing. The only conclusion I can reach is, 24 hours in a single day is only a Canada-thing.. As much as I would LOVE to offer a witty post everysingle day, as much as I would LOVE to link up to every link party on the web, as much as I would ADORE to offer endless giveaways and showcase project after project to attract more followers. I cant. Im sorry. I put everything away once the family gathers..I cant keep up in cyberspace, blogland, real life and on Mad Men in a high quality sense..for me, I just cant. Im not sure if you knew this, but here in Canada, we actually only get 24 hours in a day...but Ill still enjoy the full timer blogs, every single morning with my cup of Tim Hortons coffee and be so grateful to you.
This beaut was in some kinda rough shape....but thats ok. Roughshape doesnt scare me. This piece did not want to be glammed up. Did.Not.At.All She fought and fought hard...peeling paint, bubbling paint, shedding paint and after 4 full strip downs...she finally gave in. I felt like What Not to Wear Clinton and Stacy promising the plaid/goth/miniskirt wearing/breaking out of the tube top/blue eyeshadow women that she WILL keep her sense if personality....promise....just give in and trust.
Buttermilk under black..distressed-check...shabby-check....Glass knobs and new keyhole escutcheons (or as I like to call them: cover-frame-things)...check and check.. I reallyreallyreally need a new camera so I dont have to strain to get so-so-so pics with my phone...double check.
This dresser took me a while..but I think she turned out a stunner!
