Well, I am back from rehab.
Actually, the boyfriend finally paid my bail.
In truth, my reality tv stint ended.
I was kidnapped. And Stockholm syndrome is a powerful thing.
Obama had called – he wanted me to be in his cabinet.
Speaking of cabinets, I finally finished my curio cabinet. Want the before and after? I thought you would never ask 🙂
The very brown before.
Disassembled with a coat of white semi-gloss. Unfortunately the mirror broke in the back as I took it apart…oops!
Even the hinges, knobs, and glass-holder-inners got a quick coat in silver paint.
And the ‘wheally’ white after…overall, I like it much better for this room. Since the cabinet was free in the first place, I couldn’t justify replacing the mirror…so a thin piece of plywood took it’s place instead. Maybe one day I can find a craigslister who will give me a big mirror in exchange for a featured post on Bower Power…yea, fat chance but a girl can dream, right?!?!
And the truth is, I have been gone. Not anything exciting. Just lurking. And taking a wee sabatical from posting. I figured a mini vacay would replenish, refresh, and revive. You know it’s been six months now since I started this baby? (Note – I am refering to Bower Power as my baby. No mom, I am not pregnant.) Maybe this break will help this blog from becoming a blahg 🙂 It’s good to be back though…I missed you.
