One of the up sides of not blogging for a while is your project pipeline backs WAY up! I have a nice backlog of posts now. One of my goals was to clear out the garage and I managed to put a nice dent in our storehouse of furniture. And let me just say, Brian is so happy! It looks like he may actually get to park in the garage this winter...dreams DO come true!
First up is this cute little vanity/desk that I keep in my closet for storage.
The wood on this desk was extremely orange. It doesn't show bad in this picture but I never liked the stain. I was already in the process when I remembered to get a picture.
This is a couple of layers of paint. First coat was too light blue, second coat was too green, so I mixed the two, added a little black and got what I wanted.
You can see the layers of color in this pic. I actually kept the original knobs; that was a new one for me.
Ahhh...solid wood top (without the orange tint).
So, here it is in my closet, along with my tub-o-purses and pile of clothes that need to be Dryel'd. I have an older home with skinny closets...gotta be creative with storage.
Another project that I scratched off my list was this chest..
Cute little Goodwill find. Love the casters but the stickers across the top?..not so much
This went home with my sister. She is as bad a furniture collector as I am..in fact, me, my mom & sister (and it looks like my nieces now, too) are constantly changing furniture out & moving it around.
I painted it a light gray & white and changed out the knobs.
Another was this simple but very cute dresser..
I don't have a before picture. I hate it when I forget to take the pictures! It's already delivered and full of stuff, I'm sure.
And one more thing..

For a while I have wondered how to sign off on these posts. In an effort to be faithful to my true self, I'm going to tell you like I tell my friends and family all the time...
Smell ya later,
