More green and white.
If you read my blog last week, you know I broke my thumb.
Stupid I know.
I look on the bright side of things though. It was only my thumb and it was on my left hand. It's more of an annoyance than anything else. I can't grasp things and so far I have almost zero movement in it. I'm being really good about keeping the splint on it. This is hard for me though..I sooooooo do not obey rules well.
I'm also thankful I have had zero pain. Oh yes it hurt for a few min after initial impact, but nothing since. So no pain killers for me. (not a fan of taking pills)
It has slowed me down a bit..but not as much as I thought it might.
And this weekend I was able to finish a wonderful set of night stands that didn't start out life as night stands.
They started out as a vintage vanity.
Yes this picture sucks, and I have no other "before" pictures. But it's that one in the middle with the crate sitting on top of it.
Maybe not so cute...not before and not during.
After taking it apart and doing some fill work, it was ready for paint. I wanted to keep the top pulls as I thought they were super cute. Then had to find some other pulls that would work with them and a colour that would bring it all together.
Bring on the green!
The knob on the bottom isn't as "blue" as this picture seems to suggest. But check out that pull. gooey love. (is that an emotion?)
I love when a project comes together.
