I can't bear to throw away the children's artwork!

|We had this Pontiac for 13 years and it became Old Bessie:)|
I cried when Dad sold this car, it was part of our family!
|We lived in a 8'x40' trailer until I was 3...can't even imagine!|
|Village Creek 1967|
|At night we would sit on daddy's lap and he would read books before bedtime.|
|One of my dad's birthdays. |
Notice in the next picture he still has the same shirt years later!
|Dad's graduation day April 1971|
|I painted one coat of the base blue|
|The stenciling took hours...it is the drying time|
of one section before you can over lap the stencil for the next section.
|I started out doing 2 light coats, realized how long that would take|
and then just did one fairly generous coat of paint.
|You can see the difference between the stenciling |
with, and without, the black distressing.
|I chose a portion of the stencil to center on the drawers.|
|I found these great knobs at Hobby Lobby.|
|I chose to leave the shelves unpainted to break up the blue.|
