I totally had forgotten to write about this piece, and I knew I had to because I am going to do this several more times before I run out of paint.
I think this turned out stunning! I’m telling you, the photos just don’t do this piece justice. In person, it is simply gorgeous!
I just sold this to a young man who was intently disappointed in not one, not two but three tries at getting something into his bedroom that he was happy with. This became it. I only wish that I could have built him a whole suite. He saw this piece and fell in love with it. As did I!
This is what the piece started out looking like. A very quality, all-wood piece that I was actually given by a gentlemen that was downsizing and didn’t have room for this. When I saw this, I could tell that this had been an absolutely beautiful piece when it was new. Someone put some real love and craftsmanship into this. While me and the Kid were there, he asked if I wanted the matching nightstand. It took a little effort to wrangle it into the back of my truck, but I did it. I was determined to take it with me!
My original intent was to make it a end table for the living room, that is the one draw back to my configuration in my living room, there is no place to set a soda or glass. But once completed, there really wasn’t room for it to sit on either end of the couch, it would just be in the way. 😦
It was painted to match the first craft cabinet (which you can see here)… in my favorite “Kitchenaide Red” paint. It, too, is a wonderful, solid piece, made out of the most gorgeous wood and the wood grain was amazing, it was like they took one slice of wood and the flipped it, like an image. I wished that I could have saved it (and I wished I had taken a photo, sigh), but it was long ignored and damaged.
Here is a close up of the cabinet. Right now, it’s just going to store more (larger) supplies and equipment. I love my red. 🙂
Thanks for dropping by! And Happy Crafting Y’All!
