This was the piece that we found at the Pentwater Village Garage Sales in June. I don't even want to tell you what we paid for it, in case I want to resell it! Hee hee! It was a big ol' mess when we bought it. It had a glass door, with a beat up drawer that was in pieces. I had Ken repurpose it for me to use at my booth at the store, "Not So Shabby". We brought it down there the other night and it's a great way to house all the little accessories that made my booth feel too cluttered.
I have a love/hate relationship with this Benjamin Moore black paint. I think I posted before that I've used this paint for the last 10 years, but just lately it's given me some trouble with large pieces. It's supposed to have a self-primer built into it, but I'm finding that it doesn't cover as smoothly or roll out as nicely across the tops of tables. It is really unforgiving if you try to double back and smooth out the roller marks. I love it for small items and metal. I think when this can is done, I may leave my first love and see what else is out there. (No, not a metaphor for my life right now).
Then I paint a piece like this one, and I absolutely love the sheen. As usual, I'm very indecisive.
