New Piece (and some news!)

I'm very excited to finally be sharing a new piece of furniture with you today.  I guess, it's finally time I tell you why I've been a little MIA these past couple months.  And why I probably won't be posting as much furniture.  The big news is... I'm pregnant!  So, between nausea and this cold weather, it has been difficult to get motivated.  But by the time this baby is born in August, I plan to pick back up again at full speed.  Anyway, just thought I'd mention it in case you are wondering :)


 Before

 After





 This is the truest version of the color I could capture.
Once again, I used oops paint.  The can has no label on it, so I'm afraid I can't share the color.
It's a very soft, pale blue/gray.
I stained the top dark walnut. And I'm still not sure about the pulls, I plan to replace them.
Have you ever taken pulls off another piece just to take a picture?
Happy Wednesday!

  1. Congratulations!! I'm in the exact same boat, due August 12th, with no new projects since December. I'm starting to feel like I might be coming out of the morning sickness cloud though. Hope you are too! Take care of yourself!

  14. Congratulations! If memory serves me (my kids are 10 and 12), I had a great 'nesting' bug in the last month of pregnancy and was finishing projects like crazy. Maybe you will too :)

    I love this dresser. You did an awesome job.
