The bureau in the store
Yes, the bureau next to it was also awesome.
Starting to paint
See! There is a difference in color!
Painting the stripes
Blue tape always works on HGTV. Blue tape never works for me. Luckily, in photos you don't see the imperfections in the lines.
Figuring out fonts.
My cursive SUCKS.
Scale is wrong, cursive is bad. I had thought I would want something a little more curvy and feminine to balance out the squareness of the bureau, but I was wrong.
Helvetica wins again.
Can't really go wrong with Helvetica, or as my delightful friend Casey calls it, Helvectiva.
My stencils kind of sucked as they were just paper. I am learning, I am learning, I am learning.
Moved into bedroom in the A-Frame.
Hello Kitty Cat!
I bought the vase, mirror tray, and kitty at S. Amherst Trading Post as well. A buck each. I love that store!
I am crazy happy that you are here.
