Ok, my Before and After

I have been working on a few projects.
1. I finished a chair for Maya's room

Here's the before (even with the legos)

Here's the after (with said legos)

I think the chair needs to be painted black (hubby and I are currently debating it - it will be black I assure you).

Still working on the door, one more coat of paint but that was hard but totally worth it.

AND even bigger news, I got myself a Steelmaster cabinet, 33 DRAWERS!!!!! I am presently painting that too. I got an injury from that one. Holding the spray paint can nozzle made my finger numb and it's been two days! No feeling in the tip of my finger, just weird sensation.

Last year when my friend Kimmy found one on the side of the road and then used it to store all her crafty items and supplies I thought to myself, "I have one of those in dad's office and it really isn't being used. I need to have it." So one day while visiting the office I asked dad if I could have the cabinet and of course he said yes.

So last week when I went into the city I asked hubby to load it into my truck. Yippee. Hubby was not to thrilled to have this cabinet as he thinks it will be more "junk" rather than "ORGANIZATION" but it is here and it is here to stay.

I have partially painted it, remember my finger? Here's a sneak peek..

Yes, there are 33 drawers to paint as well. What color do you think they will be? Antique white? Black? Blue? Hmmm, I guess you will have to wait for that one. I tried to upload the door pictures but something went wrong. I will post those when I finish the 2nd coat of the door.

Until then, Good night.

P.S. I did make a fabulous quiche this evening. Tomorrow will have to be Taco Thursday.
