Yesterday was Redo-Furniture-in-Your-PJ's Day.
I think I was the only one who knew about it
and celebrated it,
but it was glorious.
I've had this old piece for a few years. I think I got it at Goodwill for a few dollars, an old, solid wood secretary. She served me as a dresser at my first apartment, but when I moved here, I took the secretary desk fold-down thingy off and put her in the kitchen. She serves as caffeine central station and mail collector.
She was beautiful, despite her missing knob
and dated, worn finish.
So, I gave her the royal treatment.
Sanding, sanding, and more sanding...
several coats of ivory paint,
and new knobs.
She feels quite refreshed.
I love how the paint showcases her elegant details
and makes the space simpler and cleaner.
A few of my favorite thrift store finds look very much at home.
Today is Scrub-the-Paint-off-Your-Hands Day.
