Okay, y’all. Our blue china cabinet. I just big puffy heart love it. I love its shape, its curves, and I love that it is painted a color.
But somehow, it hasn’t felt quite… right… somehow…
So a couple of weeks ago, when I was in a bit of a sanding frenzy, I started giving this china cabinet the crazy eye as I walked by…
I thought, “Hmm… I think I’ll just sand this one little corner, just to test out how it might look…”
…I’m pretty sure I blacked out for about half an hour.
When I came to, I had even sanded the hardware.
Now I think it’s just the perfect blend of shine and patina.
Thirty minutes and a little 80 grit sandpaper. I hit the high spots all over the cabinet and hutch.
*gush* It doesn’t take much to give me great elation!
Yes, that’s me, doing the happy dance. [I don’t have a photo of that, so you’ll just have to use your imagination.]
Have you ever sanded back something just to absolute perfection? Do tell!
