Hi Everyone! This weekend just flew by...but thanks to my parents and Dad's helper Lane, a lot of things were accomplished this weekend in getting ready for the Open House next weekend. Dad and Lane worked outside on Saturday getting the farm in shape while Mom and I cleaned inside. I still have a few pieces to finish but all in all, things are about ready. The ad is in the paper as of Saturday so there's no turning back now. I'm getting excited! I know that my mom is worried that no one will show up, but if I even have a handful of customers I will mark it as a success. I have no expectations for how many people will show up to this but you have to start somewhere...right?
So here's one of the dressers that will be for sale at the Open House. I shared this with you a few months back. There was nothing really wrong with it, but I felt it needed a facelift.
I painted it in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.
Then I sanded it lightly.
I brought it outside the studio to sand it and take pictures.
I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I just love those turned legs...and it still has the original casters on it. Can you believe this is the first dresser I bought and remade. And it is currently sitting in the Studio in a spot that looks like it was made for it, so I'm alright with it if it doesn't sell. (I'll show you pictures of it in the Studio once I have everything in it's place.) There's still a lot to do, but I'm getting things crossed off my to list. Thanks for stopping by.
