I tend to procrastinate. Just a little.
2 years ago, I bought an armoire from my sister.
She was going to sell it on Craigslist, I needed an armoire.
So I bought it with intentions of painting it and doing all kinds of cute stuff with it.
Then we moved. Like, 3 times or something.
Then I tackled the kitchen cabinet redo. It was a big job.
So I swore off painting anything.
...that only lasted about 2 weeks.
But I swore off painting anything big with a brush.
So I bought a paint sprayer. Which I am totally in love with.
This is the armoire before. It is big. And as a side note, aren't my nieces and nephews the cutest?
I loved the shape, but it was not really my style. I ditched the side pieces (well, I put them in the garage, where they are waiting to be ditched. still.) because I had NO room anywhere for such a big piece.
So I painted it. With the sprayer I purchased for the project, I painted the whole thing in about 40 minutes.
Then it sat.
For TWO YEARS.
Which actually turned out to be a good thing. I had all kinds of plans for it. And then they kept changing. Color schemes changed a few times, too. Then we bought our new house. It was supposed to be a home for the television in the family room in the basement. But the beast would NOT fit down the stairs and around the corner.
I wasn't willing to get rid of it so it made it's way to the kitchen.
Where it sat. Still unfinished. Until today.
There was a giant hole cut out in the back so that a big TV could fit in there.
Here it is midway. Painted black, sanded a little and needing beadboard. Waiting for curtains and drawers.
I made curtains for the bottom. I put new drawer pulls. And added the bead board. And here is the finished project......
Now, all I need is some cut stuff to put in there. I think I am also going to put a shelf in there. I am going garage selling this Saturday, so it should be full of old, new to me, stuff!!!
Feels good to finally have it done.
