It’s been a while since I posted last so I thought I’d give you a peek at the dresser I’m in the middle of refinishing. We picked it up at our first estate sale auction for $1.00 because no one wanted it! Pretty sad because I’ve never seen a dresser new or old that is not only a dresser but also a desk! I was pretty excited to wind up with it and I can’t wait to find a little boy’s room for it to call home. Since the piece was already blue (dull and ugly though) I decided to keep it blue. This dresser will be fit for a pirate once it all gets a coat of navy paint (the shell is already done) and quite a bit of distressing to show off the layers of paint and to give it the old Pirates of the Caribbean feel. Maybe I’ll add a touch of gold to accent it! I mean, every pirate needs a little treasure! Argh, matey!
|Medieval blue might be more suited to a knight! Too bad. It’s painting a pirate’s chest instead!|
