When "Oops" is a Good Thing

We walked into the store thinking "pale grey"
and were delighted to find
this "oops" can of good paint!
I mixed my own chalk paint and went to town.
I'll sand and put second coat on and decide what to do with the inside today...

Let the Games Begin!

Purchased off Craig's List, we carried it home in two pieces...

...certainly not without flaws!

My first major approach was to fashion this bottom/top
which will connect the two pieces.  
Next?  Fill in the gap seen at the back of the top part above.

A Project Finds a Home!

It's good to know that many of my completed projects
find their way into some great room arrangements!
This dresser is in a nursery and should find multiple uses
in the years to come!

Cedar Chest Repair

 I'm refinishing a cedar chest for friends.
A nice, veneered finish was somewhat hidden by a dark stain.
Below - the newly fashioned lid replacing the original warped one...
Ready for stain & hinges, etc.
