I don’t think I mentioned that this dresser cost me a total of $5.00!! Yeah, I guess they figured it was the right price for a sticker book, and technically that’s what it became (haha) but for me, the price was PERFECT!!
I have to tell you about the color choice. Whenever I get online I always turn to a few of my favorite blogs. One of them being Cassie’s blog from Primitive and Proper(of course!). She’s like my furniture mentor. I go to her blog for advice ALL the time. Anyway the other day she posted a mint green dresser she just finished and mentioned that it was the latest color. I teased and said…”well, if YOU say so .." then it has to be true!!
Put it this way, if CASSIE SAYS that violet is the new black, you better believe that you’ll be seeing violet all over blogland not to mention that can you just bought from Home Depot!!
Anyway,my mom called the other day and said she just bought me some oops paint. Well I got it today and guess what color it was?? That’s right, Mint. Well at least that’s what it looks like to me anyway.
This is the lovely top before. I totally forgot to add this to my last post but it is VERY worthy of being seen. I sanded the heck out of it!
At first I thought it was a water stain but now I firmly believe that the aliens sat their laser gun on top of it and burned a mark onto it. It was really awful!
I couldn’t exactly leave this post on a bad note so here it is again:
This little precious will find it’s way to my sister’s house. I’m glad it’s staying in the family! She wants it to look aged so I’ll add some light distressing to it.
I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day! I did and got a new Drill set!!! It’s freaking amazing. We laughed because I’ve been wanting my own drill that’s lightweight instead of using Sammy’s heavy one and I got it! I told Sammy he’ll get a spa set for Father’s Day. If you know him, you know he’d enjoy it – haha!
Have a good week,
