I've been asking my oldest to please let me redo her dresser for about 2 years now. While having a fit over something (???), she took a day not too long, when I was just about to slide myself into a coma of a nap, to literally throw most of her furniture out into the hallway and scream, "Will you puh-LEASE paint this thing!".
Yes I did jump out of bed, thank you very much!
Her dresser has seen many days of hair fixations, and fix-ups, and endless moments of make overs. All which have resulted in a completely crappy piece of furniture - complete with hair dye that took more than 5 coats of Kilz to cover over!
