Well I Got Her Done

I have to say it was the hardest thing to redo. It had 4 layers of oil based paint, starting with white, yellow, blue and then red. The blue and the red, still wanting to come through and peek their ugly little heads out, which meant that I had to put 2 layers of primer, and 4 layers of white paint. It took paint remover, and sanding to get it done. And it is far from perfect. And at this point I don't care. I put the appliques on the doors. Behind the doors are three pull out drawers that I'll be able to use for more things.

I'll line the drawers with wrapping paper I found at Home Goods. It's a pretty pink rose paper.

So there you have it. After months of talking about it, it's DONE !!!!!!!

Hi Glenda,

Have a good day,

Well it was worth the wait! I hope my headboard turns out that nice when I finally get around to doing it. I keep putting it off. I know it's going to be much harder then I ever dreamed it would be.

You did a wonderful job. Wanna come help me with mine? LOL

love it...and less then perfect is perfect! You can see my redo pics on Sat. I have to say it really is less then perfect because we were lazy and did not prime or sand! May need redoing down the road but that's o.k. I am not selling it....for now
I love the way it looks with my stuff so that is all that counts right? Happy weekend sweets

Hi Glenda,
Nice job! That sounds like tons of work - is your arm okay and your back?

Now where is Home Goods? I wish there was one close to us :(

Happy weekend!
