It has felt like it took FOREVER to finish this monster of a re-do, but I am finally finished.
Here are just a few before pictures to remind you of it's beauty. The doors were a real turn off for me, they just screamed 70's!!!
This was just a picture during, after I took everything out and ripped the doors off. (Which I did by myself people, Mr. Wonderful decided he would rather be fishing.)
After a lot of sanding, fighting with the Mr. about how long it was taking him to get the doors done, then when he finally finished, I painted, then let it dry, then painted again, and letting it dry some more. I finally got it finished, and put together.
There are a few things that I am going to tweak, like the middle door, on the 70's model, that door didn't even open, but when I had my husband make these doors I wanted it to open, and it does, but I didn't really like the way he did the handles. (I told him they should all be going the same way, but he said I was too late.) So I think I am just going to take the middle handle off, fill in the holes and paint over it.
Also, the shelves are glass, that's why they are a little hard to see. But overall, I really like it. My mother in law was over last night, and she even liked it. (That's where it came from, so I have to say I was a little nervous about it.)
Next, I just have to organize it. And no, I won't be putting the dolls back in it, they are in the attic, in a plastic bin. (My mother in law did ask about the dolls.) Hee, Hee!!!!!
