I’m truly awful at this.

14 Aug

Here I am again, 75 days later and still haven’t written a single post about my cookies.  I was on a roll for a few months there and then I pretty much dropped off the face of the planet.  My excuse?  I’ve been busy ;).  Want to know the sad part?  I lost the recipe for those cookies.  My A.D.D riddled mind is on to new recipes and new projects!  Before I go on about the other projects and recipes I’ve decided to fill ya in on things I did start and never posted about again, till today.

You’ve probably forgotten but I refinished an old dresser and (said) I would refinish two tables (a dining room table and coffee table).  Fortunately, I did finish the dining room table, unfortunately…that poor coffee table is still in the garage.
If you’re confused about what I’m talking about this should help ya out.  Anywho, here are the after photos.  Please forgive the poop quality, my iPhone camera has water damage (not sure how that happened considering I’ve never dropped it into water) and my camera-camera is dead ATM.    The colour I was aiming for was a solid black, however, after applying the first coat we noticed it had a slight blue tinge to it.  I should have checked the paint can prior to applying but I was just SOOOOO antsy to get started.  Turns out the original colour I wanted – Starlight something or other – was replaced by this new one they handed me called Beluga.  Yep, that’s right, my re-finished dresser is called Beluga.  Sigh.  I wasn’t sure how I felt for the longest time but now that it’s in my room and the hardware is on it…I.  LOVE.  IT!  I wasn’t going to keep the original hardware, either, but I figured I would try them out and see what it looks like.  Turned out beautiful, in my opinion.

There you have it!  the finished product ;).  I’ll talk about my new to-do tomorrow or maybe even later on tonight.  I would right now, but my first coat of stain is dry.  Gotta go!
