Painting…again

I decided to paint the girls dresser that we have had for 11 years.  It was in Ruby’s nursery; it’s not the greatest quality, but it still works just fine

Before….with knobs removed and one coat of dark paint on the top.

After…and much better!  I love it when old pieces are revived and given new life.

I also worked on my hope chest that my parents gave me many, many years ago.  It has been in the garage storing a few wedding gifts I never use.

It has since been distressed and painted with a clear glaze; the girls will be using it for a piano bench.

I am quite pleased with how both projects turned out…and I feel complete now that I have painted something(s) in my house “Robin’s Egg Blue.”  My back, however, is not happy about all of the projects.  SOMEONE is getting old…
