STILLL UGLY...but getting there!

 STILL ugly, but getting there...

OK...so the paint came off...the sanding is completed...the size has been cut down.  We cut off one and one half drawers.  I'm liking that I'll have a shallow drawer for books and magazines and other various things... We filled the one hole and made two holes for pulls on each drawer...BUT,

When we came in the house we noticed a horrible smell...SOMETHING was in the wood or the stripper or ONE OF THOSE THINGS!  At first it was "do you smell something weird?"...and then it was "Get those clothes off and I'll wash them...the STINK is us!"...so I did...hmmmm....I've refinished furniture before and never encountered THIS particular smell...but, oh well...I kept thinking of that Seinfeld episode about the stinky car...only it wasn't a body smell...it was an odd smell...

SO, yesterday I sanded a little bit and then began the painting process...didn't really get messy...but a little was on my clothes...I washed everything but the little over shirt I was wearing...it looked like I could wear it out there while painting today...so I hung it on a door knob in my dressing room and went about life.

TODAY I get up and go into the dressing room and BAM...the stink was BACK!...This time I knew it was hanging on my clothes, so I removed the shirt, and the room quickly went back to it's original regular smell...(BETTER)...but note to self...air out my dressing room!

I went to check on the dresser this morning and the paint didn't seem to cover like it usually does...hmmm...could the STINK be repelling even the paint??  I don't know...but I promise to get to the bottom of this and get back to you!  I'm stubborn...one way or another this dresser/night stand is going to work!  Tune in...

HAPPY CREATING!

Can't wait to see how this piece comes out, Saundra. I've seen what you can do with furniture and it is divine!
