But this morning I was cleaning up the wreck I've made of the house the past week while Mr. OWH has been on a fishing trip, and I suddenly thought I'll paint those dressers. So I found some paint, dug out a brush, threw an old sheet down on the back patio, dragged the chests outside and went to work. A couple hours later, I had two very nice painted pieces of furniture that I'm much happier with than I was before.

(sorry for the rear view. she hates the camera and always walks off, so I have lots of shots like this.)
|I'm too lazy to even take the stuff out of the drawers. I just painted the fronts and edges while being careful to not dangle drippy paintbrushes over the contents and it was fine.|
|Pink chest done, brown chest in progress. At this point I'm contemplating something besides white for the final coat.|
|And I ended up painting just the case a green that was left over from the 11 different paint samples I went thru trying to find a color that Mr. OWH and I could agree on for the inside of our house. Perfect.|
|And here's the pink one, no longer pink and back in place in the studio. Much better in white, no?|
