About

A find...

An old and timeworn brown dresser,
once a proud purchase,
sits neglected inside a second hand shop.
Despite the scratches and the weathered chestnut stain,
its drawer joints are still tight and strong
and...
it rests on pretty turned wood legs.
I take it.

Once I am back at my studio, it is my sons Hunter & Keegan, (thank the Lord)
with their strapping muscles,
that carry in my find. Carefully.
The dresser now finds its new home.
It shares this space with an armoire wearing only a coat of primer,
a pile of wooden planks waiting to be fashioned into art, an assortment of brushes and paint, and tables strewn, ever so neatly (haha☺), with future projects.
Here, it will wait.
I have a vision
for the old weathered brown dresser with the pretty turned legs.
When it is time,
I will paint it by hand,
trying to mimic a finish that it could have worn for years.
I paint. I sand. I stain. I wax.
Now it has been “tweaked” and, of course, “styled”,
into something beautiful.

It is chic and refined.
I photograph it,
trying to capture its beauty
and all the delicious small details of those pretty turned legs.
I let the dresser tell its story.
I swear it looks like it is standing straighter.
Now it awaits a new home.
Which it will find.
