Scared to paint? Here’s a pep talk!

The Frugal Girl

A storage chest for Sonia

The Frugal Girl

I painted it white, and I put it in Zoe’s room, and then Lisey’s, and then when I moved here, I brought it along and kept it in Lisey’s room. Sonia and I went to pick it up and I brought it home to sand and paint it. Definitely time for some fresh paint. That’s the beauty of painting!

A bit sheepishly

The Frugal Girl

My painted Christmas tree stand held up very well My de-rusting and painting job did the trick because everything was still intact when I removed my tree yesterday. You know how I’m painting that bookshelf white? You know how I’m painting that bookshelf white? I bought a tube of caulk and regretted it.
