This was some pretty quick turn around, if I do say so myself.

This morning I put the final coat of paint on. Luckily, the weather has been cooperative for the painting phase. It was above 50 degrees and the predicted rain showers were not scattered in our neighborhood.

Yesterday I spent several hours sanding down wood filler (smoothing out the front where fake drawers and doors had been scored) and putting on a coat of primer.

Here I am!

My balcony - aka workspace.

In preparation for moving the chest into the bedroom, I reorganized my casual clothes. All my tshirts, jeans and sweatshirts had been on shelves in the very spot the chest now sits, while blankets were jammed to the ceiling on the closet shelf. In the process of swapping storage areas, I purged 3 bags of clothing I no longer care to wear! This feels great except for making it painfully obvious that I wear nearly the same outfits every week. (Not on the same day every week at least.) Anyway, I plan to get some new things soon.

All settled in.


  1. Brilliant job! It looks great, and purging your closet must've felt good too :-)

  2. Gorgeous!! I'm jealous! I never find such beautiful pieces when I go thrifting.


Talk to me. You'll make my day. :)
