All in the Family

My sister Amelie has finally been bitten by the bug. She sent me some photos of her most recent transformation. Rock on, sis.
Sunroom wall Before, cluttered and unorganized:
Sunroom wall After, with her new thrift store hutch that she transformed:
Here is the old fashioned hutch Before. Beautiful glass !
Sanding step for the oak base:
After a fresh coat of white paint and modern knobs:
She told me a frustrating funny story. The day she painted the piece white in her front yard, she left with the paint wet to go run some errands. When she came back, she discovered that the neighbor had chosen that particular morning to use his blower to blow all the debris off his front yard. Where did that debris end up? Yessir. Right in her paint job. Needless to say she was beyond frustrated. Had to pick it all out and paint again. Ggggrrrrrr. She had me in hysterics as she related that story. My favorite part was when she said, “What the <bleeeeep> ? Dude, who walks past a freshly painted cabinet with a yard blower on? Some idiot !”
Here’s some detail up close:
I love how the glass in the ‘Before’ picture reflects the rusty honey tone of the oak, but now, Shazam ! Glorious sparkle ! Crisp white !
My sister’s got some skills, so go on, give her a shout out.
