progress...


I thought it would be a good idea to show my progress on the ugly cabinet - which is not so ugly anymore, by the way! When I put on the first coat of blue paint - Bay of Fundy (funky name, hunh!) - I kept telling myself not to freak out since the white primer was showing through. So by the second coat I was a lot happier with the results and almost considered putting on the varnish and skipping the whole scuffing and glazing altogether since I'd never done that before! But I forged ahead (more photos to come).

It's amazing how quickly a project progresses when someone else is occupying the kids and you decide not to worry about the appearance of the house! BUT, then that time period is over, you have to return to reality and the project gets put out in the Back 40! I worked a little bit today right up until getting dinner started couldn't be delayed any longer. I think I see a window of opportunity on Sunday?? Wow, that's pretty far away.

Here's a fun quiz if you have a few spare minutes...

okay, the suspense is killing me... you better show off the finished project next time!

Sorry to draw it out so much, but I want to have it all done to show a finished project and it'll be a few more days until then. I also just ordered the hardware which will take about 10 days. Don't worry, I won't keep you in suspense for that long! - Lisa

I am very impressed by your inspiration. I need some of that. I love the cabinet and bet it will be amazing when finished. Looking forward to seeing it.
