[please excuse the awful iPhone pictures throughout this post]
I am wiped out. I've been working on projects for about 8 straight hours today. And I didn't even get one thing finished! I must have Project A.D.D. I start one thing, move to another, then another, then another. I always have a million different ideas for a million different projects running through my mind.
Tonight I'll give you a little taste of what I've been working on. No big reveals, though. That will be for this weekend/early next week.
SO MUCH SANDING! I sanded my way through the drawer fronts of a mid century dresser I've been working on.
I repaired the water damaged top of my curbside end table.
I picked up this beauty from my Aunt Dar. Did I mention how she's my favorite?! Haha. I love having supportive family.
I stained the drawers with dark walnut.
I couldn't wait to start so I disassembled the desk and started peeling off bubbled up veneer.
TIP: Heat the veneer with an iron to melt the glue and make it easier to remove.
I also couldn't wait to try the paint color I picked out, so I did a quick coat on the drawer of my end table.
Not pictured: sanding and two coats of primer on the end table, repairs to the desk, lots and lots of spackling, more sanding and a little more sanding.
Tomorrow I'm hoping to start and finish the body of the dresser, paint the end table and get the desk sanded and primed.
Wish me luck! Hope your week has been a productive one!
