Painted Gray with Glazed Furniture

Hi all.  I hope every one is having a great week.

Over the weekend, I worked both Saturday and Sunday and I took Monday off.  My parents needed a ride to the airport for their big move to Germany, so I dropped them off then, spent the rest of the day with my best friend and her family.  They live about an hour from my house but only a few minutes from the airport.  We spent the afternoon out on their boat swimming and tubing.  I haven't been pulled on a tube in at least 10 years.  My friend and I were pulled on the tub and we laughed hysterically the entire time.  So much fun and a little frightening.

Beautiful sunset.

My friend and I on the tube.  It is much scarier as a 30-something year old than it was in high school. Yikes.

On Tuesday, I picked up my next big project!  It includes 2 large dressers, a mirror and a bed.  Can't wait to get started on those today.

You might have noticed a few changes on the right side panel of the blog.  Yesterday, I updated a few things that I haven't had the time for.  I designating Wednesday to working on the blog and my other social media.  I worked most of the day editing, writing, and updating.  Not only is the side panel updated, I also added numerous furniture pictures to my Furniture Makeover page and to my DIY & Tutorials page.  I was months behind on both of those pages.  Oops.  Now I am up-to-date and can start on my next makeover.

Today, I am going to share with you another nursery set.  This set is going in a sweet girl nursery.  The Dixie pieces were purchased by the client at a resale shop and she wanted to have them painted.  She sent me an inspiration picture and I got to work.  Here are the before pictures.

The desk.

This was her grandmother's trunk.

The client chose a great dark gray and it has a white glaze over the paint which highlights all the beautiful details.  The hardware was left as is and it looks great with the new color.
