This cabinet is taking soooo long to redo. I have learned some lessons as I've worked on it, though.
1. Be more careful when thrifting. Buy all wood furniture and not veneers.
2. Admit that I have lousy eye site and can't tell if I've painted an even coat of paint.
3. It will cost more than I think it will.
4. As a beginner, I should pick easier projects to start with!
Over all, even though it has taken longer, cost more, and been full of mistakes, it does feel good to work on a project and get messy with paint.
Hopefully it will be done SOON. So that I can
start a new project clean up the mess in my dinning room.
