What I've Been Doing

Is it Friday.......already?  Where did the week go?  I just realized that I haven't posted since Tuesday so I thought I would share with you what I've been working on.  Hoping to get it completed this weekend.

If you've been following me for awhile, you know that all summer I was looking for a dresser to replace the hub's old dresser.  Hmmmm..........an old dresser to replace an old dresser???  Doesn't make much sense does it?  Anyway you can read about it here.   This dresser has been sitting on our screened in porch all winter.  I decided it was time to get busy and get it painted.  After the hubs and I dragged it in we discovered due to the cold, all of the drawers were sticking and we really had to pull to get them out.  I let it sit for a couple of days to get acclimated to the inside temperature and what'd ya know..............they slide nice and easy now.
 


First thing I did was remove the hardware and then using wood filler I filled in all the holes.  Once it dries I'll sand it down.  I'm also going to fill in the decorative grooves on the fronts of the drawers.  I did make a trip to Lowe's today and bought new hardware.  That cost me more than the dresser did.

Looking a little nasty right now.  It will be beautiful!
I had to share a couple of pictures with you.  The black cat is Boo.  I guess he thinks it's makes a nice hideaway.
 This is Bessie.  She had to get in on the act too.

Thanks for stopping in and have a great weekend!
