just time consuming...................this is how they looked - brass or copper color -
So..................sprainted the grids with Painters Touch black satin..................
and I added a couple of appliques
how I wanted it to look -
I first painted it Paris Gray ( ASCP ) but it looked to crisp and clean for this pc - so went over it with
French Linen very lightly and than sanded - again lightly - did not want to go down to the original finish because it is not a wood color - looks more like a tobacco color - definitely not a look I wanted peaking through.
I changed out the hardware
plates - and drilled another hole in the center for the actual handle - so behind this there are now 5 holes,
hmmm - one looks a little crooked - have to fix that, lol
And here are a few close up of details -
I still have to paint a little on the interior ( upper I don't care about painting the bottom interior yet because I am keeping this for awhile ) I haven't finished the shelves - and I had a crisis with one of the bottom doors,
The screw heads broke off when I was trying to reattach them - so they are now stuck inside and I have to
dig them out - fill them - and make new holes - don't even want to think about it - if anyone has an easy solution to this - please please please share. I would be eternally grateful and would give you permission to
use my new word SPRAINTED whenever you wanted to, lol.
But for now,
