Goodness!!

I am so sorry it is taking so LONG to do this buffet. I really thought
this was going to be an easy paint job. I think the previous owner used
this as a vanity as it had red and blue fingernail polish all over one side.
I had to sand and sand to get that off. I also used three coats of primer
which normally I only have to use one coat. The main part of the vintage
handles do not come off, just the rings. I am having to paint around these
with 4 to 5 coats and have yet to get into the centers. I will then have to
go with a tiny brush to paint the hardware with the black I use for the hardware.
That will take about 5 coats as well. Then I will be able to distress, antique it
with glaze, and seal it. It will be done today, I PROMISE! I am including a
picture so you can see what I'm talking about.

It'll be a beauty when it's done!
