Don't tell Santa but I was "naughty" today. Instead of trimming the tree and putting away boxes...I was painting this little trunk. Mr. MW built this trunk for me when we were first married. He was still in law school, and I was teaching in a parochial school, and we were living on fumes. We needed a coffee table so he made us one. It's still our coffee table in the family room.
I decided I wanted to paint it black...it's a work in progress...so this morning, while an electrician was making holes in my wall to fix the lamp post, I painted.
My red antique dolly dresses found a home for the holidays in a big bowl with greens tucked around them...topped off with Schneeman star. I like my old trunk in black. That's Valspar interior flat paint from Lowe's and I love that there is not one bit of shine!
Sweet Schneeman Star
Shhhhhhh...I'll try to be "nice" tomorrow.
Enjoy the day,
*The lamp post is once again in working order.*
