Second verse, same as the first

Updated update.

We're off to celebrate The Fourth of July but real quickly I wanted to show you what I did today. (Since I had a fire lit under me.) My previous post showed a book shelf that I was feeling 'stuck' on. Well, i unstuck myself.

Before and after. The after photos were taken inside since it was close to 90° outside.

The colors are more accurate here.

I went way more rustic on the redo.

The color on the right has more depth.

Ahhhhh. This is more my style. Layers of color and wax.

So, busy busy me!


  1. I love the layers of color and wax. It is very deep, rich and beautiful! Great job!

  2. Wow, fabulous Daena. That book shelf was just begging to be distressed. Stunning job!

  3. Now lookey there, you hadn't finished it in your previous post and were just stuck in the ugly-right-before-beautiful stage (but it wasn't actually ugly even then)! Good job! It looks really good now! :) I found your blog through missmustardseed. Now i'm off to explore the rest of your blog. ;)
