I'm making progress on the armoire, and I just wanted to share with you what I've accomplished so far.
I may not have attended online school for design, but I feel like I have a knack for it.
This is what it looked like when I brought it home. Notice all the stickers, really stickers? Then written in marker was the phrase "Change how you see, not how you look." Again, written in marker, so it had to go. It all had to go. I couldn't paint over it, the paint was peeling, so it had to come off.
This was taken after I pulled the stickers off, see, some of the paint came off too. She's still madly in love with it, even tho it look like this.
Finally where we are today, after stripping it for 4 days! lol It was actually pretty easy, there's just a lot to strip, and the dog can't live in the kennel forever! lol Poor Stanley.
I still have some paint to get off from around the handle. I can't figure out how to get the Bakelite handle off. Hubby will be home in less than a week, he said he would help. I should have the paint by then too. I need to fill some dings, not all of them, just the big ones. I want to keep some of the character.
When I'm finished I share all the info about my special mix of paint that the fine folks and Robyn Story Designs whipped up for me! Love them!!
