I am almost finished painting the dresser - I have tried to do it well, not just quickly (which is my usual painting method-of-choice) and have been at it for 5 days. I am on my sixth super thin coat, with sanding in between each layer and a day for each to dry. I suppose five days isn't much in the grand scheme of things, but when the piece of furniture in question is used for housing thousands of toys, and said toys are now randomly piled and scatted all over the first floor, and the piece has nine drawers and two doors that are also strewn about the same area, and half of your living room furniture are under a painting drop cloth.... five days is a loooong time. I am hoping that tomorrow I can put it all together again, put the toys away, take some photos, and restore a tiny piece of my sanity.
Then on to something else, which I have decided should definitely have beautiful fall colours like the ones in the bouquet above. Isn't it incredible? The gold service is not-too-shabby either...
