Junk Room Redo

How long has it been since I've tackled a project?

I can't tell you when.

I bought this great chest for a bargain
at The Exchange, 
a darling little shop with painted furniture 
in a nearby town.

As I finished paying the layaway,
(yes, small towns still do that)
I wasn't sure if it was exactly what I wanted.

Ever do that???

It was heavily distressed 
and I tend to like my pieces
lightly distressed.

Soooo, I decided to paint the drawers
(the chest was all aqua),

and distress just like I like it. 

What you can't see is that some of the aqua
bled through
and I LOVE IT!

I bought the iron knobs at Hobby Lobby
which costed almost as much as the chest.

I think they are worth it!

I don't mind the top with a little more distressing.

I did get a deal on the frame, 
1/2 price!

I spotted a great comforter at 
T.J. Maxx. 

I hope to get it this weekend.
I'll feel like I'm getting somewhere 
with the junk room!

Happy Redoing,

Visit me again soon
for more additions
to the junk room.
