Operation white out...complete

Just to refresh your memory, here's what I had to work with at the beginning of operation white out...

I know..sad...but here she is after her makeover
I haven't seen a makeover this good since Cher helped Tai in Clueless. Ok, so it's not perfect, but so much better. A fresh coat of spray paint primer, some Sherwin Williams Greek Villa white and snazzy new knobs and it's totally useable. I'm pretty happy with myself. I even popped a little lavender in the drawers for a fun girly touch.


Now on to the desk, not as exciting, just a fresh coat of white paint on a black desk base seriously lightened it up a notch. Here it is out on the porch drying while I worked on the end table. I'll take a nice picture of it in action tomorrow all dolled up with it's glass top.
And of course, what's a project without my helpers. Here they are being lazy on the couch refusing to come outside because god forbid my spoiled ladies break a sweat on the hot day.

Hey Cavaliers don't much like the hot weather! Mine much prefers central air on a hot day.

Lovely makeovers! Looking forward to seeing the deak revealed.

Looks awesome! I love the touch of colors inside the drawers! If I ever make-over anything with drawers, I'm totally stealing the idea :-)
