A Finish and a Treasure!

Today I finished the distressing on this dresser and now I am done all but the beauty of the handles. I have to say that I think it turned out perfect.  This is the first piece for the spring sale at Vyntage Barn! I had not planned on finishing it but it went so smoothly I just finished it!!
 When I got it done I decided to work in my (dreaded) craft room when I found a sweet discovery. I was looking through an old sketch book from 1998 and I found tracings of my Mom and Dad's hand prints. They are just precious!! I wanted to cry but I tried to smile at such a sweet surprise! I was going to make Mom a quilt with all our hand prints. She would have loved to have something like.  I am so excited with this discovery! What a nice addition they will be to my craft room.
  My brother stopped over to pick up a few things and I showed him my craft room...he thought I needed to throw some things I already did!!!
   I have about 1/4 of the room to paint and then it will be finished and I can start to organize it. Now what a fun time that will be.I would love to show you a few pictures but honestly I guess I must be too vain because I don't want you to see it in such bad condition!! Until next time!

This is perfect. What color paint did you use? What a nice find in your craft room. Janice

Actually it is a medium turquoise even though it looks grey in the picture. Dianntha

What started as a dreaded chore with the cleaning of the craft room turned into a positive thing. I love finding special family treasures, so worth holding onto. :) You will have to show us the before and after. Happy New Year my friend! Hugs, Diane

Your dresser looks great! I personally despise painting furniture but so wish I did enjoy it because there is enough of it around here that needs to be painted!

Good luck with your studio organizing. That is a big but worthwhile job.
