Paint On

The dresser project, as not been my only current painting project.  The same day I painted the dresser, I also tackled a bookshelf for our den.  My Great-Grandfather built this bookshelf.  My parents let my put in my first college apartment and it has followed me since.

Before- I forgot to take a photo before applying wood filler- oops.

John selected Martha's Stewart tadpole green (I think that is the name).  It is light brown-olive green.  Although it was basic statin finish, the paint still has a cool pearlish-shiny finish that I really like.

What have you painted lately?

I'm painting like there's no tomorrow. Right now, we're working on the bathroom. I was painting the vanity until I spilled AN ENTIRE GALLON OF WHITE PAINT INSIDE THE VANITY. So I did what all normal people would do. I put everything away and prayed that when the paint dries, it will just peel out. I have a good feeling about it.

PS - I like the color on the shelves. Looks really nice.
