I Need A Project

I have way too much time on my hands. This usually results in me over-thinking and over-feeling.

I am also in need of a dresser.

Add these two things together and what do you have? A project! I went to the thrift shop on my dinner break today and found an old dresser for $49. I am going to sand it, give it a coat of white paint, apply a crackle layer, finish with a coat of robin egg blue, sand it again, apply a light layer of walnut stain...rub it off...and voila...I will have the dresser of my dreams. Hopefully. Oh, and the inside of the drawers will be plain white. And I will replace the handles.
