Thank you for the prayers for Ellie's surgery!! It went well and we are hoping and praying for a successful outcome, though we won't know for a while. Before the surgery I managed to grab a piece I had purchased for my middle daughter and get it base coated. Stress management painting, it works for me! A couple of brief work sessions later it is finished.
My middle daughter is a lot like me when it comes to decorating and color and changing things up. She and I like to 'redo' perfectly fine rooms. Hers is just getting a bit of a tweaking since she finally seemed ready to part with the Hot Pink bedding and zebra striped accessories! Yes (insert fist pump here)! I had already painted her room a neutral color a soft beige. Her bed is an antique iron headboard painted black, it will stay, and for now so will the black desk, though she has managed to beat the front to death with her rolling office chair so it will eventually get a tweak too. We are just beginning and until we get "Oldest child" off to college and the Prairie Market and band commitments out of the way it won't be finished. One of the big changes is replacing her old dresser with something new. New being a relative term in our house, right?!
I kept the original hardware which was kind of funky cool. I resprayed it as the old finish was 1/2 worn off so it is nice and shiny now.
I think this will be a nice piece that will serve Maddie well for a long time to come. Or until she talks me into another room makeover...
Have a peaceful end of the week!
