The Sexy Beast Revealed
It's been long enough and you've all been so patient with me. This was a huge project for me. You'll see in the pictures it's still not finished. I found this armoire on craigs list about a month ago and was told if it didn't sell she was mine. So I waited and waited and finally got the email that I could get her! I started working on her almost immediately. It was tiresome and exciting all together. This is the first piece of furniture I have ever painted aqua and Mr Garden is still getting used to it lol.
So this poor thing came home after sitting in the rain in someones yard for who knows how long. Then I had to drill out several of the screws that were stripped to get the doors off. I had a frightening bug experience while tearing her limb from limb and a moth came at me like a bat out of hell! You can read about that here if you don't know already.
I finally finished up her body and went back for paint for the doors and they were out. I went back and checked a few times but nobody had placed the order for a new shipment. So I drug her into the house doorless and once she was in place I sort of lost motivation to finish the doors and moved onto another project. Okay fine... I admit it. I lost all motivation! If it wasn't for some fans on my facebook page I probably could have left her half finished for quite some time lol!
But the paint finally came in, I bought it and forced myself to finish off the doors and now when I walk by I am so pleased with what I see. Here she is formerly known as the "Green beast" before. When I first brought her home, weary from the rain, ridden with bugs and spiders and desperately needing some attention.
