If you look carefully you can see the MCDOU portion of McDougall. Yeah. I let out a yip of joy when I saw it myself. ;)
A second splash of paint today since the weather was lovely here on the Oregon coast. I feel like it's "getting there" as far as being closer to coming home and being tucked away in my kitchen. I guess I have a couple more coats to go. I have no clue, I just go by what my domestic diva Momma tells me. If only I had inherited her skills for sewing and eye for turning the most run down into something amazing. I still think I got a bit over my head with the hoosier but she's been a fantastic cheerleader the whole process. :)
Only the areas that will actually be view are getting painted. I see no reason to waste paint if it's literally going to be behind a drawer where it will never see the light of day again. ;)
Today was also a de-uglyfy day for the hardware. I've still got a ways to go but the brass is showing now and that makes me happy!
5 befores and 2 afters.
That thing to the right of the photo .. I thank my darling hubby for allowing me to "play" with his tools. Sadly I now know why he can't hear me very well about an hour or so after he's been out in the garage doodling around at the bench. I feel rather deaf hours later.
I am still considering putting green milk glass pulls and knobs in place of the originals but while I debate that idea I thought I might tidy the originals up and perhaps use them if I haven't made my mind up before the cabinet is done.
