Yesterday was an absolutely terrible day. Like, totally the worst. It started Saturday night at bedtime. One ended up with a stomach bug. Then another. Then another. By morning, I had 4 with the stomach bug and one complaining his tummy hurt. It was a very long night, and an even longer day. I’m pretty sure I got 10 minutes of sleep total.
BUT, there is a silver lining to this very dark cloud….
My Christmas present was finally delivered!
Isn’t it pretty? I just love it. It’s beautifully displayed in my dining room.
As I was looking around the room, though, I noticed nothing else in there looked half as pretty. One thing that stuck out like a sore thumb was the picture frame I got for my wedding. (You can see it in the reflection of the mirror.) It’s been through several moves, and it was beat to snot. So, I shot my friend that painted my dresser a message and asked her how difficult it would be for me to paint the frame to match the dresser.
There was paint left over from the dresser, so she gave me that and walked me through the steps of making the frame beautiful.
Here’s the before and after:
I just LOVE it. And it was SO, SO easy to do! Now, I want to paint ALL the things. 🙂
I may quickly become obsessed with this. And I may drive my husband insane. But once he sees how pretty everything can be, he might not be too mad at me.
I think I’ve found my new go-to craft. And this definitely made my horrible, awful, terrible, no-good day soooooo much better.
Have you tried your hand at painting furniture? What do you think?
