Goodwill Giveaway Sneakpeak!

Oh, it's comin' along! This teaching job of mine limits my refinishing work to the evenings when the girls go to sleep. But after a couple sessions of sanding, two deep brown top coats, distressing, and dry brushing, it's nearing giveaway time!

My buffet is SOLD!!! Woo hoo! It was two full days of tons of emails on it, but no official takers. I was beginning to have doubts. Did I ask too much? Was it really not that good and my friends were just being "friends" and encouraging me? Did it look unprofessional? Those self-doubt boogers can really do a number on you. Finally, on Day 2 I had three back to back "I'll take it!!" emails. Confidence restored.

I don't know if it's "your" style, but something about distressing makes me wanna sing!

Flo, don't doubt yourself! It looks amazing and I think I need to learn about dry brushing!!! I have an old antique bed that I want to refinish for Claire when we move her into a bed. By the way, I think this is such a great way of earning money for your trip!
