Library Cabinet

An upcoming sale at Liberty House on March 3 has motivated me to get going on some new pieces.  It feels really good to have hammer and paint brush in hand again!  Things are going smoothly (I learned a lot from last summer's projects) and I hope to have a couple of dressers, an ottoman, a few chairs, and other miscellany ready by then.  I'll post photos as I finish (and as the computer will allow--still having issues getting pictures to load.)

This is an old oak library or office file box.  I painted each side a different color and Ben changed out the plastic hardware for these from Anthropologie.  It was great fun to do!

Playing around with some pictures and signs, too.

The painting part of the ottoman is done.  I'm going to try upholstery tacks on it instead of piping, and will post a picture as soon as it's done.  Meanwhile, I'm heading out to shovel some snow (not as much fun as painting).
