Or that's what we've been calling it around here!
A few weeks ago we (being me) found a free dining room cabinet posted on Kijiji. You can see a little sneak here and here.
But the transformation has been nothing short of epic around here and so I felt that the Jolly Green Giant deserved her very own post.
So after a favor from my Dad and cousin- a.k.a a willing lifter with a truck-we picked her up.
This is what she looked like- top & bottom- before her transformation.
I was lucky it was a beautiful day so I sanded her outside in the extra driveway. Then I had M give me a hand in bringing her into the dining room to prime and paint her.
I gave her a coat of primer and three coats 'emerald isle' eggshell Behr paint as well as new hardware before adding a little something to the thin wood backing.
*Not the greatest lighting so you can't really get the full effect of the green.
I picked up a roll of grey and white stripped wrapping paper-yes, you read that right- and covered the back of it. I love it.
Then we heaved her up the staircase and into the craft room. And I filled her.
Ain't she a beauty?! She's wonderful for storage but honestly, she's huge! Here's another view.
But boy is she a beauty! She sure makes me jolly!
