A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Dresser for the boys. And some more chairs!

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Dresser for the boys. And some more chairs!

There's my baby on top of that dresser. My belt sander. I love that thing. It's making tops of dressers and desks and wash stands look great.

This dresser is actually for my family! I picked it up at Goodwill the other day for a mere $24.99. It's nearly finished and already in the boys' room. It's just waiting for these drawers to have pulls put on. Actually, the pulls are already here, but the screws are too long and so I have to get new ones. Plus the top two drawers previous holes were too high for the fantastically amazing cup pulls I got and I needed to fill the holes and drill new ones. Ugghh....

So, it sits. Painted and stained and handsome (not pretty, because it is in the boys' room), if I could just get my tush around the corner to the hardware store...really.

I also have these sitting in the garage. They are already painted. I love French Provincial Chairs. They are just so fantastic. I grabbed all six, for seven dollars a chair!

I painted them white. And distressed the bejeezus out of them. They turned out great. I'll show you in a few days....weeks...whatev.

Remember this material....?

Apparently it isn't a staple at JoAnn's. It should be. We all love it, don't we?! It's called Mary Jane Confetti. I have the sku and the article number if you would like it just let me know. When you go to JoAnn's you'll have to order it. And you have to pay for it before it comes in. It's strange, but whatever. My closest JoAnn's doesn't stock it. BUT, the warehouse has something like three thousand yards. I ordered a bolt so I won't have to worry about not having it when I need it. 

A bolt is 8 yards. 

I'm ready.

Wow! $7 a chair! You can't beat that at all! I love the french style furniture! I just did a set and sold some but kept one piece for myself!
