So, getting rid of all those leaves was this past weekend’s chores.  Because, if you like watching paint dry, then you super-love hearing about OTHER people RAKING THEIR LAWNS.

A brief detour to the very overdue topic of Halloween ….

And then also … this happened:

Yay, fall!  And omg so horrified by that raccoon!!!

Dresser Makeover

__This one has been on my list for a long time!  It’s finally finished, and I’m finally posting it.

As I’m sure you can guess from how much we love stripping paint around here, I’m not the biggest fan of just painting things white.  But in the case of this cute dresser, its veneer and brass handles were looking dated and worn, but the shapes are fantastic!  Power sanded, silver-leafed and painted with some leftover tester paint and I  have a cute new dresser!

Such a simple, easy project — I held myself back from decoupaging every flat surface on the dresser and kept things plain and clean.  I love it!
