Ta Da!

Here she is!  The antique dresser that is FINALLY completed!  She's all re-finished and ready to go back home. 

I won't bore you with the before pics again.  Let's just say that she was pretty banged up! 

Now, she's quite lovely!  While I prefer painting, this was pretty rewarding.  I feel so good about re-storing something from the 1930's back to it's original beauty.  I won't lie and say that it didn't kick my butt but it was worth all the long hours. 

Oh, and how about my photo editing?  Impressed, aren't you?  Seriously, this picture thing is bothering me.  I have several dilemmas in that area.  First of all, I'm currently working on my back porch with no access to get large pieces in and out by myself.  Muscle Man fixed that problem today by bringing home 4 thingies (i know they have a name but don't care to take the time to find out what that is) with wheels that you place under the furniture.  So, that's a plus!  He's sweet like that or perhaps he's tired of moving furniture.  Hmmm..  Second problem is that my house is on the small side and a little dark.  So, inside pictures aren't working out so good!  That's why you see the blue behind the dresser.  I had it sitting in front of my china cabinet and I've moved this thing 1000 times by myself and I was over it!  My solution?  Put a blanket over the hutch on the china cabinet.  And there ya' go!  That's the redneck princess's solution to that problem!  Done and moving on to the next project.
