painting and decluttering
I've been busy this week trying to get some things done. About a month ago, I "liked" Valspar on facebook. They will send you a free sample of paint. Color of your choice! And they send you a little tray with a little roller! I am pretty sure you can still do it today. But I had to like and unlike them for about 3 days before I got it because they kept saying they had reached their free quota of the day.
I decided this was looking a little too country:)

This buffet came from my mom. This thing has been around almost as long as I have. I remember going to Atlanta with Mom and Lyn to pick a bunch of furniture up from Laura. We took my grandpa's truck. It had a topper on it and a uhaul behind it. Charity and I bounced around in the bed of a pickup all the way to Atlanta. Mind you, this was probably 24 years ago but Atlanta is about 750 miles from home. Fun times :P You'd be arrested for no car seats now.
I used the turquoise from Valspar on the base of it. I sanded everything down first. Then I used some black stain on the drawer fronts and the top of it. I brushed it on, then wiped it off with a rag til I got the look I wanted. If I had wanted to make this a huge project, I probably would have jigsawed the curvyness off the bottom. But I didn't want to drag it outside.
I found the knobs at Hobby Lobby. They have tons of them. I loved these!
But they didn't have enough for all the drawers, so I picked up the lime green ones. I'm pretty sure that green is my all time favorite color. When in doubt, I usually go back to green.
I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Now I need to tackle this:
