Blue Cabinet

I thought this piece may be the end of me.  I didn't realize what a challenge it would be being newly pregnant, with two small children to paint a piece of furniture.

This was the first piece I took on after I found out I was pregnant.  Despite being nauseous for nearly two months straight, I managed to get a little work done here and there.

My client was very patient with me while I slowly completed the difficult task ahead.

This was a very old cabinet.  It had two layers of old, thick paint on it.
Very difficult to sand.  I had to strip and sand most of it, so the new paint would stick.  The color is restless Sea by Behr.

 I chose to take the top doors off, because I thought it gave it a more functional, updated look.

I hope to have another dresser to show you soon.  I miss blogging and all of you!

Hope you all have a safe and happy 4th of July!
