The dresser itself is a hand me down, I painted it around 2004. This was before I had learned to properly do One Stroke painting. I've thought of painting it over, but it does serve to remind me how far I've come.
You can see part of a rose border above the window that I painted about 2007, much better! The window area itself has been under construction since last summer. It used to be a smaller window in the space and I replaced it with a larger one. Just haven't gotten it all finished yet!
The clothes on the floor were ones I was getting rid of because they were really ripped and torn. The pile next to the dresser has a lot of curtains and table linens that I do plan to use. I just need to finish out the window so I can hang a rod so I can hang the curtains! Lots of projects go just like that around here. I have to do 5 other things before I can actually do the one thing I really want to get done. Is it like that at your house too? Oh yeah, that pile of linens is sitting on a box of old records, which I do still listen to.

Well after taking out a bag of garbage here it is. looking a bit better, don't you think? I even did a little bit on the dresser top after I took care of the rest, you just can't really tell it yet. I think it's going to need at least a whole 15 to itself.
Does your dresser accumulate such stuff? This is where I clean out my pants pockets and depending on what I've been doing there may be change, keys, screws, nuts, bolts, all kinds of seeds, who knows what else!
