You know that really sad TV commercial with all the stray and lost animals looking so distraught and hopeless, while Sara McLachlan sings in the background "In the arms of an Angel..." and then a sad tear runs down your cheek? Well, that's exactly how this dressser looked at me when we first met! It said, "I know I'm missing a drawer, and have been forgotten and abused, but I still have so much love to offer!" or something like that anyway.
So I figured, a media cabinet? Then my amazing uncle offered to MAKE me a drawer! These babies are curved! He did an AMAZING job!
And a piece of wood was missing in between the doors so because I'm so lazy smart I measured it and realized the measuring stick was just the right width. Ha ha. A true carpenter, I am not!
And here she is all finished!
I always paint in my garage and get quite a few people who stop and ask what I'm doing, if I sell my stuff, advice, etc. Well, when I finished this dresser I left it on the driveway to finish drying while I worked on something else. A lady stopped and asked what I was doing and asked some advice on selling to consignment shops and stuff. Then, she tells me how pretty this dresser is and asked me what color I was going to paint it. OUCH!!! I had just spent 5 hours glazing this baby! It's always good to be humbled I guess! I like it anyway!
You know when you see a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture that makes you look twice? That's what doubletake decor is all about! Taking something ordinary, out-dated, or tossed aside, and making it beautiful, unique, and a topic of conversation to everyone who visits. It's something I love to do...in fact, it's kind of an obsession. Once I start a project I can't do anything else until it's done. Maybe that's why I like it. It's my excuse to do something I enjoy instead of laundry or dishes. Having someone love a piece of furniture as much as I do, makes my joy complete!
