Hey there dolls - how are you? How was your Monday? Great, I hope! I was supposed to go to the Orthopaedic surgeon today about my knee, but we rescheduled it for this Friday instead - which was nice because that also gives me a 4 day weekend instead of a 3 day weekend and since I have to take off anyway, I might as well use it to my advantage, right?! :o) Thanks so much for all of your sweet comments yesterday regarding my "freehand" painting. It was a lot of fun, and not too shabby for a first timer, I thought. :o)
Now.... today, I am going to show you the complete re-do of the cedar chest I picked up on the side of the road a couple of months back for my daughter's room. Those of you who have been around a while know that it started out looking like this when I found it on the side of the road:
This is after I began to strip it down:
This is the inside in pristine condition:
I wasn't real sure about painting it White, but my daughter wanted it to match her room instead of just being stained. However, afterwards, I am really glad I did paint it White - I think it really turned out so nice and will look great in her room. I used Kilz High Gloss White Paint (from Wal-Mart) as I thought it would look much better with a glossy finish and I was right! So what do you think? Please excuse the bad quality of photo but this was taken in my garage and I couldn't get the lighting right on it. *sigh*
I am linking up to this party today over at Coastal Charm. Go check them out - there are a lot of great finds and great projects going on over there today!
Happy Tuesday my loves - have a great day and thanks for stopping by to say hello!
Lots of love and hugs,
