Look what my husband made me!!

Okay, he did not really make it. He just stripped about 3 layers of paint off. And the paint stripper did not work. So he used this heat lamp and a scraper. It took weeks and weeks. Then he stained it several times. Then he put some sort of shiny stuff on it so it would not be sticky and stink anymore.

Even Quincy says it's pretty. I agree, although the picture does not do it justice. The lighting in our bedroom is bad. It's the one on the left.


Pretty cool, huh?

If you have a minute, there was an article about my husband's band in the local paper this weekend. Click here to read the article. Click here to hear the band.

Cool! You're husband's a rockstar and a carpenter (sorta lol)

The chest-o-drawers is lovely! It looks very chic!

It was a blue-gray before and under that there was white because that was my chest when I was a baby. I am thrilled it came out so good.

Very Cool! Those presents are the best. Storage Baby! What's happened to me I get excited over storage..lol

He pretty much did it for storage. He was sick of clothes stacked everywhere with no place to put them.

Susan, did you consider using a flash, when taking the pic? I'm thinking we could probably better see the hard work your husband put into that chest of drawers, if you had.;)

I used a flash the first time, but the glare off the shiny finish looked bad. I need to experiment more with picture taking.

The pic was fine. Don't worry about it. :)
