project waiting to be finished
week 47 of 52 weeks; packages waiting to be shipped. truth be told, i don’t have any packages waiting to be shipped right now. but i do have plenty of projects waiting to be finished. so i thought i would share about a major project i started this weekend.
spring has been flirting with me these last few days and has completely won me over. i was enticed outside and even got a little glow from the sun. can you believe it? after this below zero weather it was entirely welcomed. i know that in colorado we actually get more snow in the spring, so i am not delusional with this gorgeous weather. i know that snow will once again coat my house. but now i have been bitten with the spring bug. and i will not rest until i see flowering buds appearing on the trees.
i have been waiting for warmer weather to start a major project. i have been wanting to refinish this armoire for a while now. but it makes it difficult doing so when it is so freezing outside and i don’t have a warm workspace. so i knew that this weekend was now or never. well maybe not never, but a long time.
it was a perfect weekend to work on this piece. i have one more day of work before it will be finished. i already have a coat of grey down. i am thinking it needs one more coat. and i am still in the midst of taping off some chevron stripes. i was almost finished when i ran out of tape. but i can already tell that i am going to be in love with this piece of furniture when it is completely finished. i can’t wait to show you the end results.
so i guess you know what i will be doing today. the weather is supposed to be nice again today so i have to finish it up. oh and by the way, happy valentine’s day!
