This came out of my mother-in-law's Dad's house. I was pretty excited to inherit it! If you don't know (as I didn't!), it is a cabinet to store sheet music in. If I'm wrong, correct me. But that's what I was told and who am I to argue? When I went to paint this, I decided to do a really good job and scrape off all of the old finish. It took me hours to scrape just the top off!!! I multi-tasked though by doing the job outside in the sun so I could get a tan while I worked. :) I decided not to do the rest and just paint over the finish since it was so hard to get off. I couldn't BELIEVE IT. It went over the old finish like magic. But the part I scraped off??? After about seven coats, a pinkish hue still showed through! Needless to say, I've learned my lesson about doing some things the "right way" (which really end up not being the right way afterall!).
|I replaced the chunk of wood that latched the door shut with an antique wood button. I guess I should have painted that white too, huh! oops.|
