A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Little stand, no patience.

Friday, April 23, 2010

Little stand, no patience.

Apparently brown things find a home with me. I really wanted to add some color to our home. So I painted this thing yellow....but ran out of paint half-way through and it was nap time and I couldn't go and get more, but I had a ton of white, so that's what I did...yep. White. WHITE, WHITE, WHITE. Okay?!

I had no more patience for this to dry then I do for anything else.

The yellow and brown came through when I sanded things, so that turned out great. I love how bright it is. It is currently housing our insane amount of children's movies. I'm not sure if it fits the space, but I like the idea.

Go ahead, ask me about the blue chair....it used to be black. Now it is Behr Tropical Breeze. Seriously, I can't get enough of that color. I heart Behr Tropical Breeze...if I say it enough maybe a free gallon will appear on my doorstep....

The white is the always trusty Rustoleum Semi-Gloss White. Love that stuff. I too would like for a zillion cans to magically appear on my doorstep.

Or this:

I wish my kids could read, then they would know what to get me for mother's day. Or, our anniversary is the day after....wish hubs read this too....

Oh, this wasn't about what I WANT or NEED, this is about an ugly cabinet transformed into something glorious and useful....

Before: Ug.

After: Gorg.
Used the last pull from my set of 6 for $4.97 and found the knobs on the work bench...I have no idea where they came from, but they work. I think I'm going to distress it a little more.....

I like your thinking about the free paint. Your imagination is a lot like mine. Love the white chest, brown too dark, white, light and perfect in your room.

That would be fab if one of those Wagner sprayers ended up on my front porch too! Love your redo and it looks wonderful!
