Look out Martha and Joanna!

A couple of weeks ago KJ and I were headed out of our neighborhood to run some errands when she spied this dresser on a neighbor's sidewalk clearly marked for trash pick-up: 

KJ is, by nature, a somewhat shy person and definitely non-confrontational.  So when she saw the dresser she slammed on her breaks but was embarrassed to get out of the car to check it out.  I told her if she wants the dresser she should just ring the doorbell and ask if she can have it.  The neighbor, of course, told her to take it but we were in her convertible and there was no way it was going to fit.  So she had to call her daddy to drive around the corner and throw it in the back of his SUV.  While we were waiting for Coach to show up, a pick-up with two ladies pulled up and one of the ladies got out to inspect the dresser.  I was so proud of KJ when she yelled, "Sorry!  It's taken!!!" 

Although her new apartment is furnished, she was looking for something to put her TV on.  The dresser provided is very taller and narrow.  She's has a massive walk-in closet so she's thinking of putting the narrow dresser in there.  She's doing her bedroom in what she refers to as colors of the sunset -- reds, oranges, light pinks. 

She did a great job of taking the dresser apart and sanding it down (as you can see in the pic above, the top was in rough shape).  She selected her paint color but Coach ended up painting most of it to ensure even coats.  She did the mandala stencil on her own and spray painted the handles to match.  Coach also put a clear coat on the top so the stencils down get rubbed or scratched off. 

Looks amazing, doesn't it???
