So I admit, I've been slacking off lately...and horribly! I haven't touched my needle punch in a week...all I need to do is attach a small embellishment on the front, and my name to the back. I also purchased thread and a small paper mache box to make my next craft and haven't started it yet. I need to get out of this lazy slump! In my defense, I've been busy at work (surprise!) and at home we have been rearranging a few rooms which has kept me very busy the past few nights. I'm not a big fan of throwing anything away. If I can find a way to make something work somewhere else, I do. So when we made the decision to upgrade our old clunky 29 inch tv to a flat screen...we quickly realized that the armoire that housed our old tv simply wouldn't do! I have always loved armoire's in the bedroom...and our's is a simple enough design and style that it fits just perfectly with our envisioned bedroom theme. So last night the hubby and I muscled the 7(ish) foot armoire up our stairs and into our bedroom (not without a little bickering and scuffed walls mind you). And it looks great! For now....LOL! My goal is to someday refinish it. It is cheap pine, but still solid wood. I can't decide whether to paint it or use a darker stain. I really would like a distressed look. I'm afraid that the quality of the wood will keep it from absorbing the stain to give it the look I hope for. Looks like I'll be consulting the woodworking master (my Stepfather) for his expertise :)
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
