This week-end I made over the bed side table in my guest room. It is about to become LBC’s bedroom, until # 3 son is married, and then LBC will move into the larger bedroom. We are making LBC’s bedroom into an office for My DH. Anyway, This night stand was built by #2 son in shop class some years ago. He didn’t want it, and I decided it needed a paint job. I was not thinking, and didn’t get a picture of what it looked like before. It was oak, and I felt some hesitancy in painting it. It’s almost like a breaking a law or something isn’t it, painting over oak? But paint it I did! Here it is in the painting stages. We sanded it, and then painted it blue. I mixed navy and lt. blue to get this color. Then the next day, I washed it with black, and when that was dry I stained it with Minwax wood stain. I am pleased with how it turned out. I do plan on fixing the broken doors, and putting them back on.
But for now, this is how it will be, and this is its home. What do you think?
This is how most of our family dresses, mid 18th century. EXCEPT DH. He wears his wranglers and boots, LOL, and I’m ok with that. .…….I do tend to get a little "sideways" about going to Ft. Bridger. We love going......... It's like a family reunion with all our kids and friends....... We camp out, we eat good, we play hard, we shop on Traders Row, and we laugh lots, and when it's time to pack up and go home, we start making plans for the next time!
Yes, I did see Twilight over the week end. I know……...... But it's pure unadulterated fluff. And sometimes a girl just needs some fluff.
