This is gonna be a quick reveal. I have spent tons of time looking for a ‘before’ photo and I just can’t find one. I’ve got loads of photographs on several computers, my phone, The Kid’s phone and a camera; someday I am going to have to get serious about how I manage all those photos. And get into a regular routine on when and how to take photos.
Anyway, back to today’s reveal. It was a cute little piece, had to be the 70’s timeframe judging from the styling and the use of a slab of granite. LOL All we really did was to clean it up, fix and build up the drawer supports, then prime and paint. Gets to be a regular routine. This time I went with the high gloss ultra pure white. The Kid put in a small lip around the original opening where the granite went, and I cut and then covered with felt a thin piece of veneer. It was then attached from beneath. This piece was fitted with my favorite hardware: simple and clean white ceramic knobs.
One more step to this one, was to cut a 3/8″ clear plastic piece to go where the granite had once sat. This gives the new owner a place to show off some small special pieces… there is about an inch or so there. I drilled a small finger hole in the upper right hand corner to allow one to easily pull off the top, but no so apparent that small hands would get in and play with something that wasn’t meant to be played with.
Enough gabbing… here are the results:
Here was a test of the depth… it easily held a hotwheel car (this was part of my Monopoly collection). It wasn’t deep enough for a PEZ dispenser though.
More coming. This is feeling very refreshing, my personal quest to finish projects already started before beginning anything new. Now to just get them all sold so I have money for more projects! Ha!
