I'm back from Ireland and can't begin to tell you how nice it was to see my son. The people there were so friendly and welcoming and the Baileys Cheesecake...YUM!
Remember the big score from last month? Well, I finally finished the dresser. The chifferobe is almost finished just having some leg issues. I'll tell you all about it when I post about it. Then on to the head/footboard.
|Here it is w/ one drawer missing and tons of Quik Wood to repair missing veneer. See all those lovely little hunks of veneer on top of the dresser?|
I sanded the top and stripped it w/ Citristrip. A ton of sanding went on before stripping to get out water stains and cigarette burn marks. I used this new stuff from Citristrip called Paint Stripper After Wash...loved it! It really got the surface ready for the stain.
Painted it the same color scheme as the matching vanity.
|And two of my favorite people hanging out in a pub in Dublin.....my son, Mike, and my special friend, Dave, and of course me...happy, happy!|
