hello skim coat.. before major texture was added
AFTER..hello fabulousness!.. not exactly complete but good enough to post about it!
a little sanding, a lot of stain, new knobs, hinges and trim.. and this oak cabinet looks so new again!
my horrible carpentry skills... I measured wrong putting the knobs on. I guess Brady shouldn't have been working in the garage! hah!
Before and After
I think it needs a clear light bulb.. but it still beats the fluorescent bulb that was in it...I HATE those things. I don't care if my power bill is higher, I am not going to live with SO SLOW lights!
While I am on the subject of our hallway lighting, I'd better show the other hallway items!hallway before..
^"L" for Lucero is from Uppercase Living. The vase is from Ross.. If you've been to Pier1 in the last year you'll know that they have it as well for $60, but I found it for more like $16! I thought Brady was going to kill me when I bought yet another vase, but I couldn't pass up the deal!

Of course I can never miss out on a doggie photo-op. Cujo really needs a haircut and kinda looks like a little mop laying on the bed! I can't get him groomed with it being as cold as -18degrees out there! I wouldn't want him to freeze.

Before(covered in layers of paint and Scum and missing a globe):
A little soaking and polishing with the Brasso that my Dad has had since he was in the army like 100 years ago!.. It still worked great!
