I looked back into my archives and discovered that I started on this ugly green vanity in September of 2011. Clearly, I lost interest. Initially I think I just didn’t enjoy being around that particular forest green. (I’m actually sitting here laughing as I type.)The drawers have been repaired, stripped and primed for two years now. The image above would be the ‘before’ photograph.
This one would be the ‘after’. I now have sitting before me, a blank canvas, to be primed up tomorrow during my work session with the other pieces that I am preparing at the same time.
I picked this ‘baby’ up on Freecycle Calgary and took off the hardware today, as well as made a few small repairs. Tomorrow will begin the first layer of paint stripping. I love doing these projects as a way of combining my interests in painting and in creating interesting spaces. I’ve had a great day of nesting! Here are a few of the previous projects.
