It’s a freezing cold President’s Day and the kids are home, which is really nice. We’ll venture out later to Barnes & Noble and take a break from the house. I love sitting in that store with my Starbucks coffee while browsing through all of the interior design books!
My garage has become an icebox in this cold weather. I need to sand all of my pieces outside (my youngest has asthma and sanding furniture anywhere inside my house would make her sick). I tried sanding back a table top in the garage the other day but I don’t think even Shackleton was ever that cold. I quickly decided to put a halt to any sanding projects until the temperature is at least survivable.
I really wish I could get out there because I am super excited to get started on this week’s favorite find – a gorgeous Mid Century Modern dresser!Can you believe I bought this piece for $24? I think I mentioned the other day that it’s going into my son’s room. He already has my grandmother’s MCM chest of drawers and this will complete the room. What a find!
I think the Mid-Century Modern chair I found a few weeks ago will also find its way into the room. I just need spring to arrive so I can get started on these projects and more.

i am way over winter now ice is falling at a rapid pace we have over an inch already sucks i do love mcm dressers xx
It is now snowing and we are expecting about 8 inches tonight. Kids likely home tomorrow too! This has been quite a long winter. I hope you are staying warm and comfy 🙂 I also love mcm dressers and can’t wait to get started on this one!
I never tire of mcm and at 24 bucks in your hands it’s gonna be at it’s best. Read an article online recently that said they were tired of mcm. Don’t think I will ever be. It’s streamlined beautiful at it’s best. Your son is handsome!! Can’t wait to see what you do with this beautiful piece of wood. :O)
Thank you so much! I think he is pretty handome too 🙂 I can’t imagine mcm going out of style. It is still modern and looks great in any space. I have an exact idea in my mind of how I want to refinish this one. If it would just stop snowing and maybe get 10 degrees warmer I could get started!
Can’t wait to see what you do with this! I don’t know how you all manage to paint in that cold weather. Even here in our temperate coastal climate (East coast Australia), the Winter gets too cold to get the paint to co-operate. I have a heater on in the garage, but it wouldn’t get below 15 C during the day and would usually be around 18. How do you cope with it? The idea of sanding outside in your cold climate…. brrrr!!!!!
Oh, Liz, I have always wanted to visit Australia! My daughter is obsessed with koalas and is a member of the Australian Koala Association. She raised $200 by herself and sent it in to “adopt” a koala. One day we may make it there! It is totally and completely freezing here and has been a rough winter so far. Snowing tonight so kids home again tomorrow – yikes! No sanding for a while longer 🙂
Oh how wonderful! My 14 year old is just about to adopt a koala, too! We only spoke of it yesterday! Kooky! You’ll always be welcome in Australia. 🙂
