I’ve spent days scouring Craigslist in the search for a perfect credenza/desk/buffet-type piece of furniture for my “under construction” craft room. I was so bummed when I waited too long on a credenza for $50.00
The good news? I went to our local consignment store and found this bad boy for $30.00. It’s not exactly what I was looking for, but who cares when it’s about the price of a shower curtain!
I was so excited when I got it home that I tore right into it. This is what it looked like minutes later. He’s got his first coat on him now, but man does it take a lot of coats when you’re painting furniture white.
A little “surprise” that I haven’t told you (unless you follow me on Twitter!) is that I got some wainscoting put up in my dining room for Mother’s Day.
The present from my husband was that I get the wainscoting put up, and he wasn’t allowed to complain about it. At all! He did pretty well. He only slipped once. :) However, I’ve got tons of complaints about how LONG it’s taking me to paint it. Don’t you worry. I’ll save all that for when it’s finished. I should be done around Christmas.
And finally. Do you remember these pretty ladies?
Well, I finally tackled them…errr..it. ONE of them is completely naked right now. (However, I left one of her sleeves on just to keep this PG-13.) It is a pain in the chahoonga, but I’m getting pretty excited to see how
it they finally turn out.
A final note. I have no idea what a chahoonga is, nor do I know what a chahoonga would look like if it were real. I tend to think and type at the same time, and that’s the word that rolled off the keyboard. Thank you.
