I decided to tackle this project at 10pm Saturday night. That's just how I work. I took the doors off the hinges and lightly sanded - I mean LIGHTLY sanded. This piece does not get a lot of wear. I didn't even prime (gasp). I wanted some wood showing through.
(Do you like the cereal boxes used to hold the doors off the floor!)
After it was painted I rubbed a walnut stain on the painted parts and then quickly wiped it off. It took the "Splashy" down a notch and made it look a little more vintage.
I bought some glass knobs which give it just the right touch.
Whose ready for a tea party?
