Look at what I found through Freecycle!
I couldn’t believe it. Saturday morning I opened up my email and there it was, listed for FREE. The only catch…there was no photo. So, I called the Freecycler and asked if it was still available. Then, the Mister and I scheduled a time to go over and take a look. We took the seats out of our van just in case she was a keeper. As soon as I walked into the room I knew I had to have her. Isn’t she just ugly beautiful? My new motto: Ugly – Its the new beautiful.
Can you see all the potential? The Mister is not crazy in love with her but I think she will grow on him once we complete her extreme makeover. As soon as we got her home the mister insisted that we deposit her in the garage so he could start sanding her down.
And the hardware? He insisted that it will go. We have the perfect pulls picked out at Target. These are Liberty Half Round Foot Pulls and Liberty Hammered Pull in oil rubbed bronze.
I cant wait to get this project completed. So, here is what I envision. She’s going to get a good sanding down with some 80 grit sand paper. Then, primed inside and out. Followed by two coats of Kilz Casual Colors “blackbread” which is so dark brown its almost black. I cant wait! She is going to be gorgeous! And when we are finished, she’s going into my bedroom.
