I finally finished the Big Thrifted Cabinet.
It started smooth sailing with demo.
I changed my mind 20 times on a final paint color and the process was stressful.
The primer was not great which meant the final coat was not great.
I ended up sanding and repainting the whole cabinet two times with each time being 3 coats.
I wanted to burn it to the ground and I would have clapped as it turned into ashes.
I walked away for a couple of days and when I returned to it, I didn’t hate it so much.
Things started to come together for good and one day, I asked Steve if we could bring it inside.
We have SO MANY stairs and there is not one option that doesn’t include stairs.
I had help lined up to carry it in, and it rained so me and Steve……. The dynamic duo, hauled the sucker inside.
It’s like an obstacle course to get it to its place.
You see, we live in a big old house , but the common area, the place we all hang out, isn’t that big.
The whole reason for the cabinet is to hide a plethora of toys, books, puzzles, monster trucks….. and all the things little boys like to play with.
There was the perfect wall for it to sit
It wouldn’t be in anyone’s way but would provide the needed storage we desperately needed.
Move the table
Move the chairs
Don’t hit the 118 year old freestanding fireplace.
But we did it
And I love it
To jog your memory, here is the before
And here is the after
I’m glad it’s done because the RV renovation is calling my name
