Toot Your Horn Tuesday

It's Tuesday and do you know what that means?? It is time for Toot Your Horn Tuesday :o) A Silly Little Sparrow created this wonderful blog carnival where we get to Toot our own horn!!! If you click on the button above it will bring you to her site and you can play along too :o)

This week I am tooting about the dresser I am refinishing. My sister gave me a dresser that she bought at a Thrift store and had planned on refinishing but since she left it her she said I could have it. I decided to go out on Sunday and buy the materials necessary to refinish this dresser. I started stripping the paint off on Sunday and let me tell you that was hard and painful!! I didn't know how to use the product I bought so of course I didn't do it right. On the second day I put enough of the product on the dresser and it made it a little bit easier to scrape the paint off. Today I sanded the dresser and started painting it. It is a very ROYAL blue color. It is going to be going into Kobe's room and I was trying to decide what color to paint the dresser and I decided to pick something fun for him. At first I had planned on staining the dresser a cherry wood color and then I realized that I could not do it so I decided to paint the dresser instead. If I would have known I could not stain the dresser I would never have stripped all the paint off the dresser. I would have just sanded the dresser a little bit to prepare it for a new coat of paint. Oh well I know that if I ever decide to refinish a dresser again...I don't think that is going to happen though :o)

Ok enough for today, I will post pics of the dresser when it is all finished. Have a great night and don't forget to visit A Silly Little Sparrow to read her and everyone else's Toot Your Horn Tuesday!!! See you next week for another addition :o)

PS. I need to Toot my Horn for being able to figure out how to add links into my posts!!! I know I am so behind on this but I am so excited to have finally figured it out :o)
