Oh how this Craigslist dresser gave me such…
Read about THAT nightmare HERE.
And then it never sold.
It had g o o d exposure—?
But no one pulled the trigger. :’ (
It got bounced from the antique mall to make room for other things, but I worried it would be abused in my over-flowing workshop (garage), so in the last few days before Christmas I put it into use in the LL. It gave me last minute storage of misc. ribbons and sewing supplies. . .
AND~became a coffee station during our Christmas lunch!
To -even temporarily- put this here, I had to remove a tilt top table and booster chair. This dresser will still go for sale, but I’m really sold on the extra storage! I see a future project!
I turned to the –googler– (as Wendy Williams always calls it cracking me up) and searched for phrases and bible verses with birds in it. I found some cool stuff that I’ll probably use in the future!
I played with some graphics on the computer. Hmmmmm. . . I don’t know. How ’bout translating it to french?
I block printed my text. I played with placement on the dresser front. Slept on it—REarranged it some more. . .
then used tracing paper to transfer the image. Pulled out a silver leaf pen and “wrote” over the top.
An amended project.
I like it!
Please let someone else like it too. (fingers crossed)
I might lightly sand the lettering…I don’t know…
