From Dreary To Cheery
People from our awesome church have begun to catch wind of my new endeavors, and have been so supportive and excited for me as I get a chance to get creative in my spare time. One sweet lady even saved three dressers from her parents’ house which she was selling after they have moved to an assisted living facility for me to have and redo! Brandon and I drove out there one Saturday afternoon and picked them up and I was so thrilled. She must have apologized for them being in such poor condition ten times, but I told her that I thought they were well constructed and had tons of potential!
This mid-century 4 drawer dresser is the first one I got to tackle, and I tell you what…the fall weather we’ve been having has been luring me outside more and more! After the kids are done with school, snacks, and homework, I release them to play in the front yard and cul-de-sac, and drag whichever piece I’m working on into the driveway to happily paint away and enjoy the crispness in the air.
When my friend from church came by the house the other day, she could hardly believe it was the same piece from her childhood home!
I even had a chance to put new drawer liners in to keep the fun, retro feeling going strong.
How about you? Has this beautiful fall weather made you want to tackle a new project outside? Tell me about it!
