Window Bench update....

Already way better...24 hours after picking it up on the side of the road its been cleaned of spider webs and all the critters evacuated...sanded down A TON & I had to remove all the laminate from the one side since it was peeling off really bad, hardware removed & I repainted the large pieces black and am searching for cute new knobs..Primed white and looking so much more lovely & worthy of Emmie's room already! Took these pictures yesterday afternoon in the sweltering heat while the girls played in the pool, got a lovely sunburn on my back but I am so determined to get this cabinet done ASAP and show Savannah not to judge things by 1st glance!!! :) Dave is thrilled that its not going to just take up residence in the garage or attic for months until I finally do something with it!!

I gave it a first coat of the pink paint this morning, so cute and hope to do the second coat tonight. I have a GREAT plan for the inside too. I saw on one of my top blogs this cool trick to mod podge fabric or scrapbook paper inside cabinet drawers to dress it up so hoping to find a really cute matching paper!

Here are some options for knobs I have found so far I think the pink will really POP off the dark black plate behind it!
