Another month gone!

Where does the time go?? I have been to Colorado in Sept. to help my daughter move into her own place, then back to our place in Oregon to clean the house and off to another part of Oregon to help my sister move out of her house. It has been a busy month and now we are into October. I have even a bigger mess that I left at our house. Both my daughter and sister gave me things to take back and now I am in a painting mode.Here we go!! Remember this little number?This is the Before picture.

I finally finished it, well except for the bottom of the legs. They are painted gold in the before pic and I want to paint them black, gray or silver to match the handles. Haven't decided yet, that is why it is almost finished.  Are you wanting to see the after. I am in love with it even though I am not a fan of modern furniture. Here we go.....

Found this stencil at Hobby Lobby.

I just mixed black and white acrylic paint together until I was satisfied with it.

The drawers look crooked but I assure you they are not!! The cabinet looks like it is white but it really is a light gray color. I'm in love with it!

You can't see the bottom of the legs here but they are still gold. I will change it to silver, just need to get the paint.

I think it looks so much better than before and love the new handles!

What do you think? Like the stencil design?

This is what I was working on before the drawers.
Very Pink!!
