Day 27 Following my dream. More furniture

Good Morning Friends,
 I have been putting together more furniture for our next sale. This piece was so pretty that I hated to paint it. I adore how it turned out and I am hoping to get it moved into my little shed today! I knew when I saw it that it would be coming home with me!
  There is much to do but it is all good. When you are working on things that you love it just isn't work at all.
Dh and I have been working the auctions to find something new and different. The best part is we do it together and that makes is even better. Today dh and and a friend are acturally doing alittle work on my little shed and then tomorrow I will work in there after I do a little visiting.
  Sometimes it is easy to forget there are people out there that need me and that I need to slow down a do a little visiting or helping. So this week I will make a few other stops as I work. I will work steady no quickly.
  Sometimes I feel such joy in my dream such happiness that I have a safe and happy place to be, then there is the deep sadness of loss and hearbreak. That feeling of dread that you can't change the last two years and some of your loved ones are gone forever from this earth. It seems so impossible, so dreadful and so real. I try to allow myself a time of sadness before I try to move forward. I know we will be together again but sometimes I can't find immediate relief from that...I have to hold my memories dear and follow my dream knowing they are with me in all I do!

That dresser was a great find!! I am so glad you are living your dream. That is exactly what I wrote in my bio for my blog. I know what it feels like, I pinch myself everyday..I never take a day for granted. I also know what it is like not to be able to physically share it with a parent. I just know my Dad would be so proud of what I am doing! I am so happy for you!

I have a dresser in my mudroom that is very similar to this one. Mine is not quite as elaborate though. I've always wanted to paint it, but just haven't got around to it. Your photo inspires me to do it, however, since I have a true MUDroom in every sense of the word, I'm not sure white is a good choice. Maybe gray?? Do you have any furniture painting tutorials on your blog to share?
