Here's how I'm making my house a home this week.
God calls us to be stress free, worry free and rely on him and the gifts he's given us...well, that's what I did this week!
Goin' back to my roots as an artzy gal who loves to serve my family and make my home sing by being creative and frugal!
So this is what I did...
Its a simple task. Its a stress-relieving task.
And, (sigh) it doesn't really require deep thought.
Just GO for it! That's my motto!
This is what we started out with: A $99 Dresser, on sale at Salvation Army for $48!
A steal! Sorry, I didn't snap a shot with all the drawers in! I'm kicking myself!!!!
This is a fairly well built dresser! I feel bad messing with it, but ...lets just say, it was pretty groovy, and not our style.
Lovely feet! ....one of my requirements in finding a dresser was that it had to be lifted off the ground. Simply because I like to vacuum. probably too much. and I HATE that line that the vacuum makes next to furniture, if it's not lifted off the ground. Ok...I'm NOT crazy. I know you know what I'm talking about!
pretty wood. This is why I choose to keep the top stained wood! Beautiful!
....but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.
This is me...enthusiastically ready to begin! ...I LOVE tasks that I can start, and FINISH in one sitting!!!! Like this one! From start to finish, 2 and 1/2 hours! (blow drying helps dry paint faster!)
The spice rack spice containers came in handy yet again! I used them for multiple other projects, to lift things off the ground, so I can spray paint under, around and above without it sticking to the ground, or my fingers!!!! ...I highly recommend finding something in your house that resembles this idea!
Isn't it pretty!!!!
...me, painting away!
...I was figuring out how much I wanted to sand the edges...I like MORE! the more distressed the better!!!!
My patients pup... :)
Man, my animals know the drill!
(look cute, --check--, wait here as mom works for several hours on end, singing and ignoring me, and continue to look cute, --check--...repeat)
...tell me, what do you think?
