Today’s weather felt great! I don’t think I could have asked for a better day to work outside on re-finishing my MIL’s dresser that I have had since June. Yep, it has been collecting dust in the garage since then and I finally got around to re-finishing it. Shame on me – huh? Do you remember this dresser?
Well, my MIL asked me if I would re-finish it for her and I said sure. Well, there have been so many things that I have wanted to do before that and unfortunately my stuff came first (lol). I guess it is better late then never – right? She didn’t really care how it was finished so I decided to do something neutral that would match everything in her bedroom. I had my husband sand it for me since it belonged to his mother and then I finished it up. I painted it white chocolate, sanded it a bit and then stained it with my dark walnut stain. Let’s take a look. Here is a picture of it shortly after I sanded it a little bit. Too stark white for me.
Here it is after the stain was applied. Much better!! What a difference!
I am also happy to report that I got my rings back today. I had to go get them re-sized and when they were cleaning them before sending them off, they noticed that one of my diamonds in my wedding band had been chipped. So, they had to send it off to the diamond bondsman. Good thing we have the extended lifetime warranty because the diamond was replaced free of charge. I am just happy to have them back on my finger. I felt so naked (lol).
Oh, I also thought I would share just a few more goodies that I received from my Mom when I was there last time. I still have so much to share, but some of it is Christmas stuff so I will just wait to share that stuff later. This old scoop belonged to my grandpa. I thought it would look cute somewhere with a candle in it. I just still have yet to find that perfect place for it.
My Mom gave me these old crocks which I love. She gave me two others that are Christmas/Winter related, but I am going to keep those to myself for right now. I will probably end up giving one away at a later date so be keeping an eye out for that.
My Mom cross stitched this awhile back and she offered it to me. Isn’t it cute?
Who doesn’t love treenware? Yep, feast your eyes on those beauties? She offered those to me and I snatched them up like they were gold (lol).
I also thought I would share this pretty little thing with you. It popped up in my flowerbed not too long ago and I have no clue what kind of flower it is or where it came from. Heck it could be a weed, but whatever it is and wherever it came from…. I thought it was pretty enough to share. Hope you all are enjoying your weekend.
Until Next Time……
