You are so funny! I loved this entry and the final cabinet. Beautiful!! You are a lucky girl to have a hubby so sweet as to tackle the pick-up with you!

floreksa

Its beautiful!!

We got nailed with a photo ticket driving to Disney in MD. "Speeding" in a construction zone, at 2am, with no construction or traffic, doing 65.

Edith Songer

Ack. This makes me hyperventilate!
I'm glad it turned out well in the end. I've learned that I won't even go and look at something on KSL.com anymore unless it's really close to me. And usually not even then unless it's too good to be true. Things tend to look better in photos than in person.
However, knowing you, this cabinet is pretty at any distance.

K-Sue

The cabinet and all its contents are beautiful! And so many lessons learned...

Cecily Jenkins

Beautiful cabinet and beautiful dishes!! I'm glad you got it in the end, even though you really had to work for it! :)

Thanks everybody! Carol, yes, he was trying to be a good sport about the whole thing - but let's just say that it was a good thing that the cargo van mistake was his doing and not mine....because otherwise there's no way we would have been going back for round #2! :-)
Floreksa, wow. That's crazy. I wonder if they ticket their own residents as much as they ticket non-Marylanders? Hmmmm....
Edith, I was definitely hyperventilating! And Steve made me promise not to seek anything else on CL for a very. long. time.
Frankly, that one wore me out so much, and I have so many other things to do, I quite agree with him....but I'm still glad I have this piece!

Diane Wing

This cabinet is beautiful! Love, love the dishes.

Jessica Hooper

i love it! you can re-finish a china cabnit for me any day! and it looks like a $1000 peice, so i say even with all the crazyness you definately got your moneys worth!

Alissa

Love it Shelley! It's beautiful!

Deanne

Gorgeous! Love the piece-a question: some of the edges of the piece have a slightly brownish hue-how did you accomplish that? Thanks!

Shelley

Deanne, after painting it, I VERY CAREFULLY took little bits of sandpaper and sanded the edges of the piece. I had to be very careful because if (okay, WHEN) I slipped, the painted finish would scratch and be spoiled.

Deanne

Ah-good to know. About to embark on a similar project. Thanks for the info!

Hi, did you use the spray or the stain on the hutch? Thanks, Yuliya

Hello!


  • Thanks for visiting my blog! In short, I'm a wife, mother, artist, and just happen to have been born with an insatiable need to create beautiful things. I've categorized my creative endeavors into seven main areas, hence the 7 Layers; Textile/Pattern design, Sewing, Photography, Interior/Landscape design, Painting/Drawing, Monotypes/Printmaking, and Baking/Cake Decorating. There. I think that's 7(ish). You're welcome to use any of my ideas for personal use, but please do not copy and sell the things/ideas you see here without my permission. Thanks, and enjoy!
