A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: The little blue bookshelf

The little blue bookshelf

This little gal was a sad sorry sight. She had blue contact paper all over her, and just didn't look quite right.

My helpers pulled the paper off and with it came some paint. Oh well. We love that.

Interestingly, and of course, I failed to take a picture....on each side of the bookshelf was a transfer of a civil war hero.

Sadly I couldn't find a picture that was similar on-line. But, you know the one. Red, white and blue soldier, with his fancy outfit and a gun.

I am loving the way this turned out. I sanded it down a ton, and it added just the right amount of old that it needed.

This is my favorite piece you've done I think. Really love how you went alittle crazy with the sander.

P.S. Tell me again about the e-mail reply thing. I think I'm missing something here. I can be dense sometimes.
