It was a very snowy Thanksgiving weekend here in Steamboat Springs. The snow is accumulating on the mountain and I am almost ready to hit the slopes with my new skis. I took advantage of the cold temperatures not outside, but inside as I took on a fun project refinishing my beat up old dresser on Saturday and Sunday. I bundled up in my boyfriend’s woodshop for most of the weekend learning how to work power tools, sanding and staining my dresser until it looked like new. It was a big project for me, but one that was very satisfying. It was fun to get all messy and to know I saved a few bucks in the process.
