Yum.........gorgeous

OK i have noooo excuse, completely guilty! its been a crazy summer and posting photos on facebook was easier..
There are a few projects I'm working on, one of them being a pine dresser, its a cheap pine dresser that needed an update for a while. I had this little fantasy..Steve takes a week off and decided to do loads of projects around the house. Yeah well i think we can safely say that fantasy will NOT get brought to life anytime soon. So after much deliberation i decided to do it myself. I first did a little Farrow and Ball browsing to see what was the best colour for the dresser and discovered a great site called Modern Country Style. You must check it out she does so much research and there are plenty of pics. I went and did something completely unlike me and actually prepared the furniture before i even looked for colours!!!!! this is a huge improvement for me cos usually i cannot wait long enough for anything and very,very rarely  do things properly. I used a paint stripper all over the dresser and then used wire wool to scrub it down and even after that it looked so much better. I had to paint TWO coats of primer/undercoat after that......YAWN....horrid,horrid preparation....if i ruled the world we wouldn't have to prepare anything....come on, you know you want me to rule the world?????imagine NOT having to turn over the soil before planting veg....ah bliss....
OK now i must bow down to all the genius people who do interior design because i reckon i would have to buy every tester pot in production and build a very large wall or something. These colours are NEVER the same colour as they are on the tin and i mean NEVER.....its a scarey place people and u don't want to go their. I was lucky, i managed to escape with just buying four but there are people who never end up recovering from the choosing process. Warm,cold neutral......AAARRGGGGG.
At this stage I am committing to "Stony Ground" ,,honestly i will absolutely not change my mind again...maybe.


so this is the dresser before.....pics of the new improved to follow.......
