Anyone who has taken up a craft can tell you that the volume of tools and materials can build up rather quickly. The cardboard boxes and plastic bags weren't making my kitchen look any more streamlined, let me tell you. I found this bedside table in the garbage across from my in-laws. The first day it was out, it was without its drawers. Awww, so sad. But then, the next day, there they were, happily reunited! There was a hole on the top of the dresser, and there were no handles. But, I never let that stop me. I had a pair of pulls with a nice shape but hideous finish that I found around a year ago that would be perfect for it. So, out came the wood putty, the sandpaper and the primer, and voila! A new bedside table. The former K-Mart blue light special, press-board, faux wood grain dresser (I was soooo fond of it, as you can tell) is now in the basement, holding all of my craft items, and the bedroom has a bright, white dresser. Ta-tee!
I have crooked teeth from my parents and a wacky arm from a stroke. My daughter describes me as funny and smart, while she describes the other Linda from Mommy and Me as pretty and nice. So, I'm not pretty nor nice. I love the French people, French language (I'm fluent), French food, culture, architecture... In short, all of France! I'll read anything in front of me. I know more about middle school math than, well, anyone, INCLUDING my middle school math teacher husband (let's see if he reads this). I'm not happy if I'm not painting something.
