I hope you are sufficiently stuffed like a turkey (pun intended ;) from the holiday festivities. I know I am! We had our family Christmas dinner & gift exchange (which we do ‘yankee swap‘ style, but add our own variation to amp up the competitiveness & stress of the gift exchange). It’s always the highlight of the evening & filled with roaring laughter, cut-throat action, and usually a few people who end up completely shafted by the end of the night… I guess that’s how my family enjoys the holidays. haha
Although in total my hubby and I will be attending three family Christmas dinners (one early in the new year), and there are moments of R&R, this holiday has been mainly packed with the renovations of the new home.
Before I can show before and after pictures of our big projects, I thought I’d share a project I’ve completed. I might be the only person still loving faux bamboo furniture, but I found this dresser on CL for a whopping $25, and just had to have it!
It had a lovely array of soggy stickers on the top, a strange not-solid-wood-or-particle-board-frame, and a hideous colour (which to me looked like green tea ice cream meets barf… maybe Pantone’s colour for 2014? ;)
But the drawers opened nicely, and it had some solid bones that I could work with (and my dog could work with as well…)
