a quick fix

I was constantly looking at my mirrors and hoping the brown and white pattern would magically disappear.So I FINALLY found some paper I loved and replaced the old stuff. Its wrapping paper! I am very happy with the final product now! I am SOOO glad I can rip it out and replace it!

I will never ever modge podge a good peice of furniture EVER because wow that was horrible to get off. I need a couple more coats of white on the bottom and then I will finish the top!! Just a little mosre sanding to get it smooth then stain wipe repeat and then polyurethane and then DONE. I feel like I am running a marathon on this project. It will be worth it though!

I'm Back

Was I on Vacation? No. Was I sick? No. Did I get a job? No. I just had three kids at home all day for the first time and for a full summer. So now I am back (I hope) and I'm starting with the cedar chest I started back in May.

I have only worked on it twice all summer. Its been a doozy. 5 layers of stuff so far. I am here now:

But I will be done with it by the end of the week! That is the rumor anyway. Yay for inspiration!
