Pull out the Paint!

Don't you just love it when you can finally replace a piece of furniture that you are so OVER?! This piece was purchased for it's size only and not it's style....or LACK of style. It is a holdover from our previous home that had an enormous cutout in a stone wall. This fit perfect for all it's non descriptiveness (is that even a word?). This weekend project changed all that once and for all. WooHoo and YippeeYiYeah!

About 3 years ago...and I am not believing it has been that long!....I had purchased this unfinished piece with a master plan in mind. So, my daughter had the great idea to get this project on the road to completion. Notice that I am placing this on her shoulders just in case something goes off course. Primer first, because that is what the book of painting rules says to do, and off we go!Of course we are waiting the appropriate dry time with a stop watch in hand. Two coats of paint later and more drying time and we are yawning by now. Time out for a little shut-eye. Sorry no pics of that moment because that is way to scary. And VOILA!!....
This is the new piece of furniture in it's appropriate place. Yeah! This is only the first phase of the master plan and I hope to post the updated look soon. We are having ice and freezing weather here in Texas and I am NOT going outside. I can get supplies to finish this in a couple of days when things thaw out around here.
Thanks and kudos to fav daughter for getting this project done. She's awesome and a hard worker. I always get work done when she is around to help keep me focused on the job at hand. "THANKS SWEETIE"
