Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

21 Jul

The Daily Post Photo Challenge this week is “Fresh” and I thought I’d snatch the opportunity to provide proof that I actually finished one of the projects on my “Do Before the Move” list. I purchased this hideously painted small chest of drawers at the local auction in the winter. This week, I finally got it sanded and painted, and traded the dinky little wooden pulls for some pretty bakelite knobs I found at an antique fair. Now it’ll have a fresh life as a collector’s chest, holding my shark teeth, ammonites, and sea shells, plus all the other little treasures that regularly find their way into my pockets whenever I go for a walk.

    I’m envious of that chest! Now I have something new to add to my “things I must have” list. The color choice is perfect. Glad you shared this picture.

    Awesome! I will trim your hedges if you refinish a piece of furniture for me! Remember-the barter system! 😀

      Thanks! Didn’t turn out too bad for my first refinishing project. 🙂
