I know, I know, Where's the SPLASH of color? It's coming, *holding up 2 fingers* I swear! But I couldn't wait any longer to share the pictures.
Here are BEFORE and AFTER photos.
I thought I'd share some other photos as well. I was so into all the sanding, priming, and painting that I forgot to take some "before" photos. I know I have some of my "hope" chest and when I come across them I'll post the "before" and "after" photos then.
I am very pleased with the progress I made over the weekend. I hope to have all the painting and sealant applied so I can put everything where I want it and start the actual fun stuff.
