The Ugliest Before and After Project!
This shelf/cupboard measures 6x6ft square and proved to be the most challenging project rehab I've tackled in a while. Dripping with what was thought to be broken old jars of canned goods oozing their goo from the top shelf to the bottom. Such a mess!
It took 4 guys to load it in the truck. My husband was the only one who had faith that I would be able to transform this nasty beast into a beauty. Others thought I was crazy, which only made me more determined. Even the lady who sold it to me had her doubts. She only asked $25 bucks for it. Score!
To me, it was all cosmetic. Check out those cool sliding doors. Reminds me of something you'd find in an old classroom.
Well, it took quite a few hours to scrape, sand, degrease, paint 3 coats of primer, and 2 coats of a brilliant peacock blue.
But now... it's my pride and joy, sitting proud in our living room.
