Sorry Jess

I told Jess I'd get these up here weeks ago, hopefully she saw them on facebook.

Dad asked me if I was sure I wanted to paint it. He has had to strip off paint from so many pieces of furniture, I'm sure it was horrifying to think I was deliberately painting a piece of oak furniture black. :-) I have to say thanks to my Uncle and Aunt who were getting rid of this piece that formally graced their bedroom. I'm glad they asked if anyone wanted it. Nothing like getting a whole pantry area for the price of a bottle of spray paint. I think it cost us a total of $7.00.
This is a little out of order, but I had to share my delight in the fact that I now have a whole drawer for these items. Before they were spread out everywhere. This has to be my favorite feature.
And don't you agree? Much improved. I absolutely LOVE it. Best of all, it only took about twenty minutes to spray paint it. Three more big drawers, and a small pantry part. I love the fact that the remodel has provided beautiful improvements like wood floors, countertops, my black sink (yes, I like black), but my favorite part is that I have more storage space. I actually have empty drawers. Of course, that could be due to my lack of taking time to organize and put things in them, but we won't mention that. The fact is that I have empty drawers just waiting for me to fill them. What a delightful feeling.

Very slick, makes me all giddy to redo my stuff now. 20 minutes heh? You do know it'll take me hours because I wreck everything I do with too much perfection, the opposite of what I'm trying to achieve...
