It must be summer, because I’ve been super lazy in my posting the past few weeks! And not for lack of material. I still need to share my marathon photos, our recent marathon celebration and all the fun decorations and food that I made, and some other home improvement progress.
But today I have a poll for you all – so scroll down and log in your opinion. I need YOUR vote, today!
Oh – and before I forget, I must mention that we had a miracle in our house the other day. The toilet paper miraculously made it’s way to the holder – without any nagging or commenting! And not only that, I came home to a clean floors, clean kitchen and the lawn had been mowed! Read about my toilet training experience of a 30 year old here.
But we have an update on the second dresser refinishing. (Read about the first dresser here.) It’s been sanded, primed and painted. At first I used Dove White by Sherwin Williams, but wasn’t really digging the yellowy tint to the color. Then I tried using some left over trim paint in white. Still yellowy. Plus it was super gunky. And it was hard to get into the little crevices of the detail pieces. So I broke out the trusty can of spray paint. And wouldn’t ya know – it was perfect.
Do you remember what she looked like when I found her at Goodwill?
So here’s my dilemma – I don’t know if I should distress the piece, leave it solid white, keep the original hardware, or change the hardware, or spray the hardware to more of a tarnished silver. I need your help – what do you think?
