Diamonds are a girls...................

After painting the windows black - this just didn't cut it anymore

This is what our T.V. sat on - and I cannot believe I have kept it like this for over 9 years -
This had 343,234,00 coats of paint on it when I got it ( 25.00 ) and I painstakingly got
rid of every coat - stripped and scraped and sanded until I got it down to the bare wood.
It's hard to believe looking at it now how proud I was of this, lol
Anyways John is away - and you know what comes next...................
I think he's going to be furious, I am systematically removing every piece of wood from the house,
Overkill?  That would be me.

those lion handles look a little drunk -
( haven't screwed them in place yet, lol ) 
The thing is now that I've done it - this does not go in the living room whatsover - soooooo,
I have switched it with one I had in the bedroom - and now am painting another dresser black
to fit in the living room - and all have to be finished before John returns tomorrow night and sees
what I've done - if it's finished and everything back in its place looking good than I am ok.
Following me still?
Because this is one confusing life I have created for myself,  lol

  2. My husband's away too and I am also painting stuff, but not stuff that he didn't want painted, stuff that's been sitting in the garage for years, so he'll be happy. I think. Although I do want to paint our bedroom furniture at some point...

    1. Oh and by the way, I like the after much better!

  3. Amazing! I love this restyle :) I'm your newest follower stop by for a blog visit.

  4. Love the diamonds. What did you use for the paint?

    1. thanks everyone -
      I used a mix of Annie Sloan paint for the grey - I don't have a recipe because I just kept putting in a little of each - old white and paris gray - and then I added a little behr pure white
      ( don't tell anyone I mixed ASCP with BEHR lol!!!!
      The silver is just craft paint - DECOART - but any would do.
      I then sanded and waxed - with clear than dark but I took most of the dark off just left a very little here and there.
