Today's Work

I spent the day refinishing a dresser and bookshelf that were given to us.
(Thanks, Sandy!)
They started out bright red, yellow and blue, had a short period where they were primer white and then spray paint brown.
They ended up being a brown/cherry mottled color.

I am quite happy with the end result.
I had a few doubts along the way, and had to make a trip to the hardware store to pick up a few supplies mid-project (that's always a little frustrating), but at the end of this holiday, I'm happy that this job turned out the way that it did.
Pat spent the day hanging siding on the shed...and is exhausted tonight.
We definitely made the most of this day off!

Love furniture refinishing projects. They turned out great! Brand new {again} and didn't hardly pay a thing. That is my kind of furniture.
