The beginning of a re-do!

A few weeks ago I picked up this corner cabinet off of CL for $75. It is VERY well constructed. A young guy made it a few years ago in shop class and he did a great job. As soon as I saw it I knew it had great primitive potential.

I was able to finish the top half last night. It has FOUR coats of black paint, I almost died when I figured out it was going to need that much. I left the inside of the shelves black and the outside....well you ll have to just wait to see it completed.

I got 2 coats of black on the bottom half today.....2 more to go!!!

Unfortunately this piece will go into my booth for sale:(
I'm a little conflicted on a price so if doesn't sell after a few weeks Ill bring her on home and use in my dining room:)

Did you know Robert Pattinson was a singer?

He is beautiful!

When Twilight came out I figured with all of the hype that I wouldn't be interested in the movie so I didn't watch it. Robert however.....YUM! Anyhow....last week Twilight was on Showtime as I was flipping through and I caught the last hour and I LOVED it! Of course Ive watched 2 other times since then:)

Ill be back with pics of the finished cabinet!

Beautiful! Can't wait to see the finished product. BTW...when you did your wood floors, how wide did you make the planks? I figured, now that I have some time on my hands, I would do my floors.

What a difference that black made on your cabinet. I absolutely love it. It would look perfect in your dining room. I say keep it and don't try and sell it!

Catherine said...

What a great find! I would definitely try and find a spot for it - don't sell it!

As for Twilight, if you liked the movie, you should read the books....and you can picture "him" as you are reading!

Jenn, I just LOVE your prim cupboard! I don't know how you can part with it after all the hard work you put into it. At least tell me that you will price it very high, so that if it sells, it will have been worth it!
About Rob Pattinson.......ah, lets just say I think he's incredibly handsome! :0) I had no idea he was a singer. I do know that he had a part in one of the Harry Potter movies. I love his natural accent and wish he used it in the Twilight movies.
Have a great week!
