So, I managed to find some get-up-and-go and brought my current projects just a bit closer to ‘done’.
First up are two dressers getting the standard pink ombré treatment. Both are five drawer chests of drawers, I love when I get five drawers, that gives me the chance to paint with six different shades of pink! Pink, pink, PINK!
Here are the befores:
And… we’ve been working on turning two pairs of head and foot boards into benches. We totally lost momentum last week, but now we have found a new push to getting them completed. I have been debating on whether or not to build a farmhouse style table and maybe add two ladderback chairs before selling. Haven’t quite decided.
And speaking of undecided, we put the first coats of red on the benches. Holy cow! I don’t think this is the right red… it leans way too much to the pink spectrum that I am thinking a new deeper shade of red. I could have sworn that the paint was the same thing I used when painting my own pieces (you know that I love red, right?) but obviously it wasn’t. In fact, I started wondering where so many of my gallon paint cans came from… time to purge!
Spent a bit of time working the cross stitch project too. Now that day light is around longer each night, it gives me more time to work on the project. For some reason, I cannot accurately do the stitches by lamp light, only day light. Totally weird, huh?
I’ve just about made it through my list of started but unfinished projects. Crazy thing is, I don’t really have any new projects in mind! What ever will I do?
