Goodbye Joe - me gotta go................

I'm leaving town - I'm outta here - and can't tell anyone because I'm leaving with a piece of furniture I've just customized for a customer -
I can't give it back because I'm so in love with it.................. part of my disorder is that I constantly fall in love with inanimate objects ( mostly furniture )
So if anyone is looking for me e.g. my clients - you haven't heard a thing from me in days.................

BTW - I'll be the lady trying to board a greyhound bus with a giant french provincial dresser -
arguing with the driver that Yes of course we can fit this on the roof.
And there may be a commotion at the border because I'm thinking  of going deep in the heart of Texas ( Pat, can I stay with you )?
Just until everything cools down - and I can return with this:

This dresser got the works - it was painted - than gray washed - then gently distressed - than dry brushed - then waxed to a high sheen - the handles were sanded and spray painted black semi gloss

ASCP - Pure White

and here she is before

TIP - because the wood was such an ugly color ( to me and the customer anyway )
I painted all the perimeters black - so black would be what was coming through when
I rubbed and distressed -

Ok - I've get to get some sleep tomorrow I'm Greyhound Bound

Son of a gun - I'll have good fun...............................


In the meantime I'll be partying here!!!
