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!
Her father is moving into a home with full time care.
It takes a lot out of people to have to move their parents..it can't be easy. I've never had to deal with that.
And even in the midst of all of that, she thought of me. She called me and told me she had a dresser I might be interested in. Could I come get it.
I said of course.
So off I went.
This is what she showed me.
This pic was taken after I took one drawer out and the handles off...
Check out those handles! Love Bakelite!
And how cute are those feet? A bit on the "busy" side..but love the shape!
So after cleaning the hardware and trying to picture different colours in my mind...it just kept screaming BLACK to me. Ever get that? I know, strange, but I swear my pieces speak to me and beg me to be certain colours.
So what was I to do but listen!
I think he's much happier being black. Those stripes were rather confusing on his feet.
I cleaned up the hardware and put it back on.
Now he is distinguished from head to foot.
You can't see all the detail in the mirror, but trust me it's very nice.
