I've been wanting to blog about this for awile. When I went in to retrieve my pictures, I had to go back to August. That's when I bought it, I didn't realize I had been so slowful. I finally got it done. I love how it turned out.

My husband matched the paint for the outside with all the little cubbies and drawers inside.
I didn't want to paint all those litte cubbies. And I like the yellow color.
 I just didn't like the dark stained outside.
 It was sooo dated.

I was hoping when I got this far I wouldn't have to paint all the window type sections.
I told myself it looked fine the way it was.

I kept looking at it and new it would bug me to leave it this way.
 I just wasn't sure I would just mess it up.
But I just kept touching it up when I would get the yellow on the white, and then the white on the yellow and so on and so on, back and forth.

I painted all the original knobs and handles White so they would stand out.
I love the French Provencial Handles.
All Done.

And Here is the Before!!

Hi Faye, this redesign is amazing. Love how it turned out and I know the challenge of painting all those little details. The color is gorgeous.
Love your blog and now a new follower too.
