morning light.
it is NOT this bright blue

inspiration for the bathroom closet

picked up this at Borders last night
ignore Hubby's size 16 in the shot...he was taking the pics for me

 hmmm no closet door on the closet AND organized?!
but my "closet" is about double the depth so doing this make over will take some thinkin'

the closet and trim as of last night.
stripped and scraped twice.
since needs work before I can start to make things pretty

the dresser

she is a painted! (said in the best I-talian accent this Texan can muster)
she is moody, dark and a more than a little bit sexy
not sure that goes well with 5 yr old boy...
this may be MOMMA'S now
I know you want to peek but that comes tomorrow!
I see crystal pulls in this dresser's future

playing with paint

and stain :)

cream with "age" stain...would also sand and distress
can really see the age of this dresser in the pic

rubbed french blue over black (Bub loves)
technique needs worked on....
but that is what I get for 30 secs and using a hair dryer!

Minwax "Provincial 211"
looks good here, IRL it is showing EVERY. LITTLE. BIT. OF. PAINT. left and looking hazy
