Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
About a week later the husband from the couple this went to was doing some work for me and I mentioned that I saw another set that looks very similar to the one that I did for them...but that it was more money than I was willing to pay for it.
He got very interested and told me how he still didn't have any drawers for his stuff...that his wife kinda took over all of them.
He also mentioned that he would be willing to buy them if I could redo them and he could give them to his wife for her birthday.
I'm sure you can see where this is going.
This is what was brought home
I know what you are thinking. This is not an exact match. You're right. It's not, but the top is and the legs are. And when done they will fit right in :)
How wonderful are they?
Again, solid wood with a veneer on top. I love this. I can't wait to find a set that will be "mine" :) Someday...someday.
So I set to work. I posted before pics on my facebook page and the wife didn't say anything.
Then I posted "after" pics yesterday morning when they were done.
I used the same colour and technique as the other set and loved how they turned out.
Almost right away she posted that she wanted to "buy" them. I ignored the post. See I hadn't gotten a hold of her husband to let him know they were ready for pick up.
I sent him a message.
Then she sent me a text asking to buy. So I called him.
See I'm the worst liar on the face of this earth. I even have a hard time lying through text. Now that I'm thinking about it....hmmmmm they can't see a lie on the other end of a text can they. This should have been a breeze..lol
Anyway, I did manage.
I told her it was a custom order and sorry but they were spoken for. PHEW...made it. I lied! Well kind of.
They were a custom order and they were spoken for, so technically I didn't really lie :)
