Progress...well sort of...

The chest of drawers jumped ahead in the queue. This piece of furniture belonged to my mother. Yesterday I managed to sand the chest. Today I'm going to tackle the drawers. My goal is to make the piece look a lot more contemporary, so I'm going to be brave and paint it a saturated, glossy blue. The hardware will get coated with a Rustoleum Metalic, Matte Nickel. No words can describe how happy I am to be giving this pretty piece of furniture the attention it deserves.

My grand vision is one of a lot less brown wood in my living room. This is going to be labor intensive, as I have a lot of furniture to paint. Almost everything in the room is stained wood. Oh well, one piece at a time...
