Sore!

I sanded the veneer from eight large drawers today. My arms are tired! But the dressers already look fantastic, and we're only halfway done with our plans for them, so I'm pleased. Monkeys is trying some paint finish experiment in an attempt to make them match our beautiful fan, which is vaguely Steampunk.

I've also done four loads of laundry, cooked dinner (usually Monkeys cooks), played DDR for my daily exercise requirement, and played Monkeys at Scrabble. Pretty good day in all.

I have to vacuum, as we destroyed the livingroom in the process... but otherwise I'm just gonna relax and drink coffee, watch Masterpiece Drama, and fold laundry for the night. :)

Cool! Productive sundays! =o)

I didn't do anything today. I started feeling all 'sniffly' since yesterday so I slept till 3pm today. Got up, did some homework, and now I'm going back to bed.

I can't wait to see your new dressers. I hope you take before and after pics!

I forgot to take before pictures, and I am kicking myself!! argh!! at least we made Matt look at it, so he can testify as to the amazingness of it. we took an in-progress picture, but I don't think the next phase will be as noticiable. All we want to do at this point is veneer the sides to give the impression it's a solid piece and maybe attempt to do a dry brush gold paint on the trimmy bits. Not sure about the dry brush because it's looking really good as is. :)

I can't find my card reader to post the picture he took :(

I CANNOT WAIT TO SHOW IT OFF!!! :) :) :)

It is gorgeous!
