Well, that changed last week when I decided to remove the wooden knobs and paint the drawers.
But it wasn't until yesterday that the dresser itself was hauled outside to be painted. It was given a glossy coat of pale pink. I added glass knobs that we found at the home improvement store. I have now invested more in this dresser than it is probably worth, but oh well. My soaps look really good in it!
(Oh, and we ran across a whole tray of meat soap. Joe insists that it doesn't smell like meat anymore, but I just can't bare to slather myself in it, just in case. In fact, the thought of it makes me gag a little.)
