Painting Again

There is still nothing too exciting  to report in the decorating department at the house in Hooterville but I did break out the paint brush and  paint sprayer  again and got a few more painting projects finished.
Two of the exterior doors got a fresh coat of black paint, which I think is a better color choice for the brick exterior.

Not too long after we bought the house in Hooterville, I found this old dresser on Craigslist.  I envisioned making one of the guest rooms “pink and girly” so I though this dresser would be perfect with it’s feminine details.  It has been waiting for a fresh coat of paint…

The dresser also came with  an old-fashioned  mirror with lots of scrolly details but that’s a painting project for another day.

A very pretty dresser and mirror. Wish I could find things like this on Craigs List. It will look beautiful in your girly room.

Hi Shari,
I love the dresser! It really turned out pretty! I also love a soft and light color for my couches. I have cream and would go with white too, I think it looks so lovely and fresh.
I am so happy to read that the little Mama horse is coming around. You daughter is a real sweetheart!.
I always enjoy reading your posts and catching up with you and Hooterville.
Take care and enjoy your day.
Hugs~Elizabeth~

The doors look much more distinguished that flat black color. Much better. And I love the dresser!

I love the dresser transformation. That is right up my alley!. You did a great job. Also love the doors. Black is so classic with brick.
