We recently painted a couple rooms, including our ugly white living room, which naturally led to a strong desire for new furniture and carpet.
But it's silly to buy new furniture when you have 3 boys, age 6, 8 and 12. Boys are hard on furniture. We'll wait a few more years. But my discontent prompted me to look closer at this cabinet:
And this cabinet:
A little too "country" for my taste.
(drum roll, please)
Fresh, new, less "countrified" and more pleasing to my eye. It's not often that I get a picture of what I want in my head and find myself able to pull it off to my satisfaction. Amazing what a couple coats of fresh paint can do to a couple of old cabinets.
Spill it, reader. What have you painted over lately?
