Black Beauty...

This is an image of one of the Cupboards that came in this week.... It's a Dandy! Someone had cleaned their paint brush, full of white paint, on it's front and side...80 years ago... So, I worked several hours, removing it, and restoring the wonderful, dry finish.... It took me 24 hours, to decide if I wanted to restore, or leave it alone... After all, the white paint, is part of it's journey...I thought, if it were going into my house, would the paint bother me... ultimately, I decided it would.... I chose to bring it back, to it's intended finish... I always disclose, any restorations... This Cupboard is well deserving of my time... { just wish I would have had it a week ago... a few hours, is a lot of time, with a Sale just a week away...} I am totally exhausted... and the work, really is just beginning...We have tons of stuff, coming in... Once I get the Shop squared around, everything will go like clockwork! My Pal, Allyson rang, this morning.... we visited about our up coming trip to New Orleans.... I keep pushing, to get everything done, with the knowledge, I will be able to 'crash and burn', for 10 days, down south... So, push, I will... and we'll get 'er done!
