This was one of the first things I ever painted.
I didn't really like it. Probably never will.
Especially after the cream-colored paint started to yellow and the nightstand began to look like a smoker's special.
But I bought some new (old) furniture for our bedroom, so this is getting banished to the guest room.
But first, a little more paint and a lot more cuteness.
Since I took a shine to the whole metallic look, I just changed it from caramel latte to gray. Martha Stewart Metallic Thundercloud, to be precise. I had it left over from my Nightmare Stand.
I painted the rest bright white (same color as my casing that you haven't really seen yet).
And then I cut some lace I picked up at the local thrift shop and spray-mounted it. (Since taking these pictures, the lace has started to come away from the drawer fronts...don't tell anyone.)
Why, yes. That is, indeed, the attention-whore clock.
I believe it will make an appearance in all subsequent blog posts. I think I'll turn it into a "Where's Waldo" event.
I tried reading The Casual Vacancy on two different occasions. It belongs to a friend of mine. I was not impressed. Have you read it? It just doesn't seem to have any magic.
I've officially given up on it. Especially after the Raccoon Incident, I don't have the stomach for petty politicking and personal agendas.
But now I don't have a yellow book to match my yellow stuff anymore.
I picked these knobs up at Hobby Lobby. (I recently tore the house apart looking for these knobs. Then I walked into the guest room and found them right where I left them. Secured in these drawers.)
I'm liking it for now. But that could change in five minutes.
If I keep adding enough layers of paint, it will eventually be big enough to be a dresser.
