I'm taking this whole refinishing furniture thingy by the horns. LOL! I'm enjoying it so much! Taking something well made but in need of modernization feels really good.
Today I went out to my now new FAVORITE place in the world and returned with two really nice wood twin beds. Headboard, footboard, rails, et al. The price was ridiculously awesome and what made it even more awesome is that a family member decided to gift them to me for Christmas and called ahead to pay for them for me. When I texted the family member to threaten to fight them they were all like...BRING IT! And...SAY IT WITCHA CHEST!
I decided family shouldn't fight for Christmas and well...they'd prolly win anyway soooooo...
MERRY CHRISTMAS ME!!!!!! GO ME! IT'S MY CHRISTMAS! GO ME! IT'S MY CHRISTMAS!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I FEEL SO BLESSED THAT YOU LOVE ME SO!
So...I'm, of course, chomping at the bit to get them started. I bought the paint I want to use on them and will probably do them tomorrow. I'm putting them in a room that is navy blue and I want to make it super relaxing and still fun for guests who are kids.
Now...the thing I'm SUPER DOOPER excited about starting? THIS!
Maaaaaaaaaan look! I couldn't fit it in Deuce, of course so I couldn't bring it home. The Robinator is in deadline mode so he might not be able to help me go get it until Saturday.
WILL I SURVIVE?????????????????????????
This will certainly be a test of patience as I have none when it comes to doing what I want to do when I want to do it. So now...we wait. And while we wait...we do the most searching out stuff online to help make it look like I want it to look. I just ordered this: AMACO Rub 'n Buff Wax Metallic Finish, Antique Gold, so I could get the brass handles to have a really awesome bright color. The pull on the top drawer is missing so I need to either find a replace for that one or three to replace them all. I hope to identify that before I go to bed. LOL!
I have my Annie Sloan chalk paints already. I know exactly how I want it to look. Just gotta get it here and get started.
PATIENCE MONNIE! PATIENCE!
I can't do nuttin tonight though. *sigh*
