This is why I haven't updated...

I happened to go to an estate sale a few weeks ago and saw this. I LOVED it. However, my heart spoke faster then my head. This has been my longest project EVER. I love it though. At first I was so upset when I started it. The thoughts going through my head were..."I am waisting my money, I reined it with BRIGHT orange paint, WHAT AM I THINKING????" Then a thought occurred to me...I need to distress and tone it down. So, I went to the store and bought some stain. I sanded it down and put stain on it and I LOVE IT!!! It is not quit done but here is where it is at.
BEFORE: (I almost forgot to take a shot so it has half primer)

IN BETWEEN: It is not quite finished yet:)

Here I Really Am

Okay so, now that I probably have NO followers...I am UPDATING this blog!! I am so sorry for how crazy my life has been. My husband and I have just been having to much fun being a family. We have done school the last 3 years and this summer we have been getting through him preparing for the bar. Now that we are done we have just been enjoying these 3 weeks before he starts work. So, indeed I am SO sorry for keeping you all waiting. Here is a GREAT before and after. This is my new jewelry box...or hiding spot for it:)
