Good morning everyone. Just wanted to drop in to say a quick hello and let you know that I have not disappeared or melted. I just about melted clean away Wednesday though...I decided that I was well enough to stand on the back deck and sand on a cupboard in the full blazing sun.It was only around 100 degrees !I will save you the trouble and call myself an idiot.Long story ,shortened I got to hot and landed my backside back in bed for the afternoon. I did manage to almost finish the cupboard and that is the above mentioned makeover.
As some of you know ,I have been tying to organize and decorate my craft room. I was out Tuesday running errands with mom and I saw this cupboard sitting on a the porch of a junk store.I fell in love with it as soon as my beady eyes landed on it.I was not thrilled with the color and thought hey I can change that easy peasy. Just a little sanding and slap a coat of paint on it.Boy was I wrong! Here is a before shot of it :
Please ignore the flooring (it is hopefully going to have laminate soon) and all the clutter.I have the room in a total mess at the moment. Do you see the yellow striping on the cupboard ? Well it was pin stripping tape and a booger to get off. We had to take a torch and heat it up on the doors to remove it from the grooves. Easy peasy , remember ,yeah right!
This is not the best after shot but I tried to get one without showing all my mess.I had to stand on the stairway to get it.
The color is a lot darker than it shows in the pic.We were at Wal Mart the night I picked up the cupboard and I just grabbed an oops paint, since hubby was in a hurry.The color is called charcoal stone.I had intentions of painting the back of the top a lighter color but I was to shaky after getting to hot.Thought I better leave well enough alone.LOL!
Here is a pic with a few of my things on it . It won't stay this way I am sure, I'll be tweaking it as I clean.
Those small drawers are so handy.I am keeping tape,label maker and that type of things in them.The bottom of it is storing my plastic totes.
Well I best be getting back to work . If you don't hear from in the next few days be sure to send out a search party. I may be buried under an avalanche of junk.LOL! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Hugs ,Jen
