Welcome Spring

After a long winter I'm so excited for spring to finally really be here. I think I'm going to take a little break from blogging and really enjoy the season. I have so many projects that I'm really looking forward to working on. Hope you all have a wonderful Spring time!

Water fall dresser

I found this great water fall dresser at a yard sale...Wow what some people get rid of, and I'm glad they do! Of course I forgot to take the before picture cause I was so excited to start working on it. I removed the drawer pulls, they are so cool and very art deco, I cleaned the metal on them with steel wood. I love the amber color on the pulls. Once I sanded it down and wiped it off with paint thinner I was ready to paint. Then I sanded the edges and stained them with mahogany stain, wiping off the excess with a little paint thinner. I love the way this piece turned out and the wonderful details on it.
