So the hardware went onto the special project dresser and I am calling this complete and a success! I will let the pictures do the talking:
And let me just say that I think that it has turned out pretty awesome. 🙂 I hope that Danielle is as pleased, but more importantly, I hope that Danielle’s daughter is pleased not only with the dresser, but the whole theme of the room. I’d say that this is one lucky little girl! Perhaps when the room is completed, I can convince Danielle to share a few photos of the whole room with us.
I also managed to finish another little project, one in my all time favorite color:
Of course, you all know my fondness for red! This little black and red number just pops! I love the transformation of a tired little piece to something that will take center stage in whatever room it ends up.
I have a number of pieces that I’ve been working on over the past week in my tried and true black & gray ombré theme. I’ve actually had people on Craigslist contact me and request pieces. As long as it continues to sell, I will continue to paint it! The Kid helped me tonight redrill holes for handles, seems that between mid-century and now, the handle distance has widened, from two and a half inches to three and a half. So much of the new hardware I order requires new hole configurations. Just one more step to fill old ones and drill new ones. Once I have those installed, I will throw a quick photo up here on a post.
I also managed to snag a beautiful all-wood dresser in a Goodwill! I think it was just chance or good luck. I was told that they had just put the dresser on the floor minutes before I walked in (and I wasn’t even looking for a dresser there) and that they never last long. This one had ‘good bones’ but Lord it was beat up and rode hard. Someone had wrapped clear tape around it which looked like it had been there for years and it required nearly sanding it to the raw wood to remove the residue. It also got beautiful ‘new’ old hardware and will show it off tomorrow as well.
Been a long, cold day and I am tired, so I will say goodnight early. Something about really cold weather and snow that just wears me out!
Thanks for dropping by! As always… Happy Crafting Y’all!
