Allow me to give you the back story first. You see. Last Thursday, I was scheduled for a laparoscopic oophorectomy. What is that you ask? A fancy, new cosmetic surgery? No. Just a way to dive full blown into menopause. Oh hooray for me. No, seriously. Since my breast cancer was estrogen positive, it was necessary. Taking the ovaries out was a way to stop my body from creating that evil estrogen that my cancer really liked. So, the day before surgery was auction day. What a better way to give myself a consolation prize for hitting menopause at age 36 than going to the auction for some shop therapy.
Just so you know. My surgery was "uneventful" (thank goodness). Just crossing my fingers that hot flashes, night sweats, and weight gain will not be a major issue for me now that I am in menopause. But hey, don't I know that things can be worse. I will take it. Okay, back to my acquisition.
I was determined to walk out of the auction with the winning bid. Those poor folks didn't have a chance! Are you ready to see the objects of my determination? Okay...
I have a pair of the commode chests. Aren't they fabulous?! There is only one problem. Both of the tops have seen better days. So, the question I have for you is to paint or not? I feel like they are so gorgeous that it would be a crime to paint them if not for the top needing some tlc. But really, I am not feeling the wood with the decor of my bedroom. So, I was thinking of transforming them with paint.
Here are a couple of inspiration pieces:
