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
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
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,
I spotted a great comforter at
I hope to get it this weekend.
I'll feel like I'm getting somewhere
with the junk room!
Visit me again soon
for more additions
to the junk room.
