Moving in!

Standard

I know it has been over a week since I have posted last, but a LOT has happened!!! My last day working at my previous job was Friday. Garett and I immediately got in the car to visit our dear friend Kent in Richmond, VA. What an awesome city full of rich history and an eclectic crowd! Just a quick 36 hour trip and upon returning, I set up my entire studio and got started on some projects I’ve been ITCHING to work on! My sad looking red chair I found got a complete makeover. It has a retro shape so I thought that I would play off that and paint it a killer lime green.

After this beauty was finished I started a much more involved piece. I found this old laundry hamper cabinet. The basket was attached to the door, there was no bottom nor back. I loved this rare find, however, the basket was in no condition to conserve. My next idea was to turn it into a cabinet that could go anywhere, either a bathroom for extra storage or in the living room as a side table. I havent finished it yet but I will show you what I have so far.

This is the before…

This is naked…

 

This is where it is right now….

 

My wonderfully talented father-in-law agreed to come help me cut wood and show me how to safely use the table saw. We cut a back, bottom and shelves!!

 

 

Garett and I had a contest on who’s finish would turn out better. Garett-1, Lauren-0. Whomp whomp. He wins and the white finish is what the entire cabinet will look like!

I will be working on it tomorrow before I head to Dallas to visit my family for my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary! I will have another post up at the beginning of next week!
