never know what ya gonna get

I am sanding the trim in my guest bathroom because it NASTY and LUMPY. I have half the door and closet door done (out of sand paper pads switching to paint stripper tonight) and to my surprise the wood is BEAUTIFUL and smells like Christmas so good that I am rethinking painting it at all.
Would that look OK?
White bead board and doors with wood trim?

I then got bored inspired and took the sander to my turquoise half round table. Ruffed it up really good. Loving the instant age :) I can not wait to get some stain to enhance it farther.

Last but not least....
I took a risk and hit the newest curb side freebie with the sander.
I knew it could go either way but with dove tail joints I had to try....
School Bus Yellow
more dirt

til I got to raw wood
CHERRY WOOD!!!!!!!!!!!

Be still my heart :) sigh
wish I had a camera!

  1. It's amazing what is under some peoples painting! My great grandmother's old secretary desk was painted and I stripped it to find mahogany wood underneath! I've passed it on to my oldest niece before we moved. Hated to part with it but I never used it anymore and a young girl who still writes letters would!


I love comments and feedback :)
it makes me feel HAPPY!
I do not like SPAM so don't waste your's or my time :(
