Never mind. I was in the shed yesterday, found a jug of paint stripper and thought I'd see what was under the umptyeleven layers of paint before I added another layer. I *think* it's walnut-whatever it is, it's a nice, close-grained wood with a dark, sort of reddish stain. I'm going to get more stripper today and do the rest, restain and then seal it. (Yes, my middle name is occasionally Maytag, because I'm wishy-washy!)

* * * * *

My dad came down to visit this last weekend and brought my old dresser with him. It's a nice solid wood, but nothing fancy, I don't think, and probably not anything that would look good stained. It was one of my first furniture projects when I was in high school, and that paint is still on it, only it's faded from barely beige to sort of a sickly pink.

My plan is to paint it bright white and decoupage labels on the drawers-clip art panties and bras on one drawer, socks/hose on the next, sweaters, pants, etc. The snag is that I'm not finding clip art like I'm envisioning. I'm looking for somewhat cartoon-y line art, just black and white. (Although if it's not b&w, I can always PS it to *be* b&w.) If I can't find enough of that style, I'd be ok with b&w retro/vintage pictures of the same stuff. (Clothes, not the people in them, although once again, if that's what I find, I can always PS the people out.)

Unfortunately, my google-fu isn't getting me anywhere (try google any variation of "panties" and see what you get! Angry ), and I've already been at it most of the day. Time to call in some backup! Does anyone have any idea where I can find the kind of clip art I've described?
