A New Linky Party!

I love linky party’s and try to join as many as I can sometimes I just can’t but you can bet I’m there the next week the hostess’s have them. I found a new one, Before and After at Shine Your Light I’d try to explain but Lisa does a much better job than I ever could, stop by Lisa’s blog to find out more! I really think this party will help me get the job done on alot I want to do around here. Here is Lisa’s description in her own words!
I am so happy to welcome you to the first "Before" party, part of a new series I am hosting on the first and last Fridays of each month!
The first Friday is for sharing your newest project, and the last Friday will be your chance to show it off! If you aren't complete by the end of the month, no worries, update us on your progress this month and share your big reveal at next month's "After" party. Any and all before-and-afters are welcome - home improvement, a craft you've been wanting to try, or maybe a
weight loss goal you're working toward.
Let's accomplish some of our 2012 goals and inspire each other along the way!

Here’s my project to get done in a month, keeping my fingers crossed that I do:)
This chest of drawers is outdated and in the  small guestroom I’ve always wanted to paint it but could never make up my mind on what color to chose, finally I went with gray bought at a little mom & pop hardware store in my area. I’ve had it since this past summer (this is why I think the Before and After party will help) just never did it but always saw the chest of drawers every time I’d be in the hallway, I think now is the time! I did decide though that I’d keep the top as it is, it’s in perfect condition and I do like it!
The walls are painted Buff, maybe I’m choosing the wrong color? If you have any suggestions I’m sure open to them. I know I didn’t want to go with black or white so I thought gray would be the way to go.
Pretty in it’s day, I’m thinking 60’s or 70’s.
I’ll be changing the top four knobs but maybe keeping the bottom ones.
None are broke and are in good condition.
I’m sure I’ll have to go over these stencils with primer before I paint!

Well, this is my project and we will see if I get it done in a month so I’m joining this party at Before and After at Shine Your Light be sure to visit Lisa and join her party, it’s going to be fun!

Okay....on your profile, something nice and pretty only shows as a dot???? that's why I couldn't get here for so long!!! ugh! I'm soooo glad I finally figured it out! LOL.
Plus, I lost some blogs off my blog roll a while back, and of course yours was one of them..again, ugh!!
Anyway...that dresser is very cute, and I think it will look even cuter after you do your magic on it, Rondell.
Have fun with it!!
