Hurry, Before The Paintbrush Dries!

I have been in a real funk lately. It helps if I can find some type of manual labor to do. That way I can see something I have accomplished rather quickly. I get kind of boost. Well, I wasn't in the mood to really really clean and that is the only way I feel the boost. So...I decided to paint some furniture. Josh and I both really liked how the hutch turned out so I decided to do some other pieces to match.

First up: the side table


Next: My hope Chest


Then: our night stand


Finally: the glider
I have no before picture. i forgot. I still have to make the new slip covers so I'll post an update then.

Some of them ended up better then others but I am pleased with all of them. Especially since I did them all over two days. I have also discovered that distressed black flat paint is SUPER hard to photograph so most of them ended up looking grey. oh well, rest assured they look better in person. I had to do them all in 2 days because I had to do all the pieces before the brush dried as this was an oil based paint and I didn't buy any paint thinner. Now for my nap.
