three months later...

Remember my curbside find?
It came with a mirror too.
It's finally done!
I'm laughing because I remember Nate telling me that I had two weeks to redo it and get it out of the garage. 
Ha!
Check out what a little bit of primer and a lot of satin black paint can do (plus a little moaning, groaning and sweating).
I spray painted the hardware ORB.
And here's the mirror.
I think there's someone in that car!

Yeah, I'm pretty sure someone IS in that car. :)
The before picture reminds me of the Golden Girls.
Much better now!

Amazing job! I'm with PLA, what room is it going in?

Jane Anne said...

Awesome! Is this a keeper or are you going to sell it somehow?

It turned out great. That dude in the car is probably stalking you for an interview with Better Homes and Gardens.

I have no idea how this post started as a furniture redo and somehow ended up with "moaning, groaning and sweating...."

Maybe I'm using the wrong brand of paint? ;)

Bette said...

That looks great! and yes I think there is someone in that car...

That looks great! I have a dresser sitting in my family room screaming for me to paint her. I purchased it for a mere 30 bucks at a yardsale. Maybe i'll at least get it primed tonight
Thanks for the inspriation and motivation.
