Don't we all have our go to color? This was another CL find from a couple I have bought from before and instantly connected with. Love that! Did I anticipate being there for an hour yapping, yes. Did I anticipate 2 hours, no. But it was nice hanging out having coffee w/ a down to earth couple I felt like I have known for forever. If you're reading this George and Robin, yes, I'm talkin' about you.
|This has an awesome mirror that goes with it that I was too lazy to drag out to take a pic of. I sanded the top down which happily took all of about 20 minutes....love when it is that easy. No strippers needed.
Sanded, spray primed, painted and glazed. Quick word on glazing. Glaze really tones a color down so don't be concerned if your paint seems to be in your face. See what I mean...
|Cold colors look way better glazed in black/charcoal. Warm colors, glaze in brown/burnt umber. Just my 2 cents.
I stripped the frame around the mirror too. That took a bit more time but still came off easily enough even in the recessed areas.
Stained it all in Dark Walnut but you knew that already, didn't you?
