Finally got her painted...

Now she looks like a "lovely, farmhouse lady..."

instead of a "big, kitchen turd."

I painted her (matte) Sandstone Cliff by Behr. I asked for flat. But was given matte. Guess they consider it the same. Personally, I don't.
She took one coat of primer, two coats of paint and one coat of satin polycrylic.
Because of her age, I took some sandpaper and slightly roughed her up around the edges. I thought it was appropriate.
Hey at our age, aren't we all a little rough around the edges??
I just have to wait for her knobs and bin pulls to arrive
(I purchased the same as my kitchen cabinets). She also needs to cure a little longer before I fill her up with "stuff." At the moment she's a bit modest due to her nakedness.
I thought about keeping the top glass doors off, knocking out vertical center strip of wood, wood putty the holes and keep her as a regular ol' hutch. But I was reminded of the dust that accumulates with a wood stove and thought it best to keep the doors on and the dust out. Who knows? Maybe I'll get a bug up my butt and do it in the future.

So that's is. She's
(almost) finished.
I'm pretty sure I heard her breathe a sigh of relief when I hung her last cabinet door. ((giggle))

Happy Monday, all!!

It is Monday, right??!! Heck, I'm losing track of time!

I can't wait to see her bejeweled in her new hardware. I truly admire the way you jump in and get things done.

Thanks, ladies! Man, what a difference! The color really helps to blend in since it's rather large for the spot I have it. The problem is my kitchen has almost no wall space. It's nuts! Actually, it's like that throughout the farmhouse. Didn't folks back in the 1800's care about decorating??!!! ((hee hee)) I'm guessing... nope.
Maureen, I'm not one to procrastinate. Been like that my whole life. Once I get an idea in my head, I usually run with it. (At times driving my sweet hubs absolutely crazy in the process.) ((giggle))
Thanks again, all! ♥
Hey Denise! Here's how to make a heart on here...
