The Nancy comes out of the closet!

This fancy Nancy dresser is not what she seems!

For decades she gave the illusion she was oak. A masculine dark grain - She fooled us all into thinking she was something she wasn't. It was all in the makeup she was wearing. When I stripped her makeup off, I found out Nancy was actually not oak at all! All this time! For many years I spoke to her like she was oak, and I cared for her as I would for an oak dresser. Well, she has come out of the closet now, and we all accept her for what she is - birch!

To celebrate her liberation, I gave her a new look. A feminine soft look, with just a hint of masculine, to remind her what she once was.

She seems to have a natural glow!

She can't seem to stop smiling now! 

 Her curves seem more curvey!

Don't judge me, but I am in love with Nancy!!

  1. that is hilarious!!!!!! i had a sideboard once with beautiful graining and i planned to paint the body and strip and refinish the top. when i stripped the top, i took off all the graining and discovered it was a fake!
    well it looks so pretty now and you don't have to feel bad for painting over oak! :)

  2. This turned out beautifully... nice job!

  3. That is so beautiful! I love how you celebrated her newfound roots!
