Well, that crazy painter crept into our house this weekend and painted another piece of furniture in desperate need of a face lift. His latest victim is the three drawer chest that was in the kid's room.
Right now I have it where the buffet used to be in the basement kitchen. I am not sure if it will stay there or not.
Right now it has my collection of hurricane lamps on it. I am not too fond of stripping...hum...that sounds kind of strange, but you know what I mean. Anyway, I found a primer that can be painted over glossy finishes so you do not have to do any stripping. The only problem is that it is white. I told Jeff and my mom that I should have the primer tinted a color so that I could distress the furniture and the color would show through. If I keep up with the painting, I will probably try that.
I do like how the hurricane lamps and the handles go together. They are both glass. I am thinking of painting the keyhole opening gold to make it stand out some.
For now, I think it turned out pretty good. I will keep you posted if it changes locations or if another piece of furniture falls victim to the crazy painter.
Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. As always, I appreciate you stopping by and I hope that you will continue to come back as often as you can. Always remember, "When a deep injury is done us, we never recover until we forgive."
All My Best,
