I did a lot of painting this weekend, among other things. Here's some pictures to tease you:

I hated what I had originally done to this poor wheel. Now, she looks lovely, and I plan on hauling her around with me instead of the Joy.

To see what she looked like before, go here. She's the first one on the page.

Remember the Rambo wool I dyed last week? Here it is, all carded up and ready to be blended!

I've since blended them up into 3 different colorways...I'll do the fourth this week. 4 different yarns from the same wool...pretty cool!

and After I wielded the magic paintbrush of taste.

More pictures of the dresser, and a quick "how-to" of the top, can be found here, at the bottom of the page.

So, that was my weekend in a nutshell!

Re: Beautiful Stuff!

Thank you!

I'm keeping my eyes open for a carder for you...I never know what I'll trip across out here!

I had found one for $25...but I couldn't find the website again when I went back. Bad Me for not bookmarking it. *sigh*

Very nice work. The Fugly Dresser of Doom is a very nice piece -- good lines, nice proportions nothing wrong with it that paint couldn't cure. And you most certainly cured it.

Wanna come play with some of the stuff in my house? I've got loads of period furniture. Late Relative and Early Yard Sale are my favorite periods!

ooh - my favorite periods, too! Especially Early Relative...since it's usually free. *g*

I *almost* marbleized the Ashford's Drive wheel....Almost. Sanity returned at the last minute and spared the poor wheel that. *eg*
