As I told you, I am really liking the look of white furniture lately. I went to the juck stores, but still cannot find anything worth bringing home. SO, I wandered around the house... Hmm, who is my next victim?
The ugly television stand.
Candidate #2, the equally ugly bookcase housing the stereo...
With it's fake woodgrain plastic stuff and lots of dents and dings.
And the winner is...
The fake wood bookcase. You can see that I started stripping off all the torn or gouged plastic woodgrain from the pitiful thing.
A coat of primer, and the same white paint from the fireplace and Don't forget the piece of plywood, some moulding, and the SAW!!!
Guess what? I figured out how to do moulding cuts at 45* angels!
Taking it for a test drive!
Nailed, puttied, caulked, primed, painted, and put in a new place.
Who would have thought something so ugly could turn out decent enough to keep?
I had to give the plant a haircut to fit it here. So, into a jug of water it went. Anyone local want the cutting?
Of course, I put it right next to the chair I recovered in Dropcloth, and the Fireplace I built the surround for. Ok. Now hold on tight, I am going to spin you around the room. 13 X 20 and filled to the gills...
Yes, you do see my walls are different colors. Cream, tan, brown, and of course, PURPLE!
Looks like Mrs. Trudy's Teacart is the only thing I haven't touched in this room yet. (No, Mother, I am not!)
That is DIY network on the television, and an old(er) air purifier system Jon dragged home....
Every day is a gift. I have the most amazing teenaged sons in the world. They are my reason for being! Living in the Pacific Northwest, I get alot of time in my gardens which are my sanity. But the winters are difficult because I am stuck indoors so much. As I try to change my life, and focus more in my creative pursuits, I am sharing everything with you. My three boys are growing before my eyes. Every day they are different. I am learning to treasure every minute we have because soon, they will be on their own. So, as I create, I also want to encourage them to grow in thier gifts. Men of Honor, that is my goal.
