Yes! Erm, I mean, if you want... :D

Also, those kelly-green dressers are gorgeous! It's amazing what a lick of paint will do for things, isn't it?

Love the green!!! We just refinished my husband's dresser. I tried to get him to let me paint it aqua but he said no. We went with boring black.
Also, I just finished my 1st quilt top thanks to you!! I'm getting ready to send it off to be quilted. I never dreamed that I would actually make a quilt.
Thank you!

How do you make your furniture look so finished when you're done with it? Yours always looks so professional, while lots I've seen looks all bumpy and lumpy and obviously re-painted. Tutorial someday? :) ...and I love the giveaway idea :)

Dressers look beautiful. I am fully in favor of child labor myself. I have been wondering--what happened to the music player? For me (and I assume others), it disappeared with the change to the new blog format. Is it coming back??? It was one of my favorite things about your blog.

Nancy said...

Great job on the dressers! I love old solid wood dressers... so much that I have too many dressers in my house... I have one in almost every room... :)
