I have been working off and on since November on this project of refinishing a set of old wooden flat file drawers. They have become a true labor of love that has occupied many a weekend, and not-so-ironically the endeavor has mirrored my life at times: strip it, sand it, shore it up, blow it off, rub it down, stain it, clean the hardware, polish the brass, build a strong and movable foundation and top it off with a workable surface. If only life responded equally as brass does to a soft cloth, some polish and elbow grease... We would all spend our Saturdays sanding and staining with smiling faces. Still, the brass is getting shiny and I can't help but smile a little. Before and after pics to come... Of the drawers that is. And of Life? There is only now anyway, right?
