Remember this old bureau that I rescued from the landfill yesterday?
I spent most of today fixing it up, with Sean’s help.
First, I pulled out the two remaining drawers and discovered dust and a spider and a few other tiny bugs and crawlies. So Sean and I carried the empty dresser out to the driveway, where I gave it a major powerwash with the garden hose.
Sean got started measuring the space where I wanted a shelf, since one of the three drawers had been missing its front panel and was beyond repair.
In the meantime, I started painting. I went with two coats and thought that was a good place to stop.
It was foggy in Morro Bay today, so it wasn’t the best day to be taking photos in natural sunlight. But I think you can get a pretty good idea of where this project is heading.
What do you think so far?
P.S. The name of this paint is Good Life.
Which is kinda appropriate, ’cause that’s what we’re living, baby.
