This is what I landed on, not exactly a soft landing
I was just not paying attention to what I was doing and tripped
And I am black and blue and every muscle hurts. Getting old is no fun, it is a lot harder to bounce back from stuff like falling, it hurts a lot more than it used too. Being old is only good for antiques and collectibles not for people, who are somewhat of a klutz.
But my garage is full and I don't have time to sit around and feel sorry for myself. I have been waiting for nice weather to come so I could work outside. And this week it has been gorgeous everyday, hot and sunny. I have quite a few antique dressers and I decided it did not make sense to haul them all back to Ontario. So I decided to part with one and give it a makeover.
Don't you hate when you don't take a before pic because you think you have one, then you can't find one anywhere arrrrrrrrrrggggggggg
I have owned this dresser probably for two years and I don't have one pic of it , how does that happen
Sorry but this is the best I can do for a before pic
The dresser was in great shape but had lots of water stains and marks on the top
I don't know who does this too wood
I had to clean off nail polish and some kind of black tar substance off the top too
I was going to paint the dresser white and the drawers a light grey, but after I painted it all white for the first coat.
I decided to keep it white
I added two small appliques to the part of the dresser that the mirror attaches too
Just to add a little more character
The dresser was in excellent shape and some of the hardware was there
I had to replace the knobs on the top two drawers
And here is she all done and looking very pretty in white
I painted it in Anne Sloan pure white
I was going to distress it but decided to leave that up to the purchaser
Not everyone likes that look and I didn't want to limit my buyers
It is actually hard to part with this, I love the look of it
At one time I was going to keep it and make it into a bathroom vanity
but I have to cut back on what we are going to move back to Ontario
Do you find it hard to part with your pieces too ?
Especially after you fix them up
I am taking today off from working in the garage
To rest you might think, but no
I bought a cute little cabinet that I am picking up today
And it is Saturday and it is nice outside
So you know what that means
YARD SALES !!!!!!
I know the garage is full and I am still downsizing
but I have to have things to work on to sell
hey that's my story, and hubby is falling for it .........so
I am off to check out yard sales
Hope everyone has a great weekend
And please be safe if your travelling
and watch out for those decks
(and no I was not drinking when I fell off the deck)
but trust me I could have used one after for the pain
Maggie would like to wish everyone a very Happy Easter too
