The doors may or may not have to be tossed…
I could just picture Mrs C, lightly touching Mr Cs hand and just saying,..
“Its ok! Dont worry! It will be fine!”
Little did she know, I was worried! … A LOT!
They wanted doors! These guys would HAVE to be repaired! AND later I would notice a missing shelf I would have to replace,.. thats not always as easy as it seems it would be..
But ok, worst case scenario that would be money out of my pocket..
I felt inclined to take on the challenge!
Have you ever heard the saying blessing in disguise? Well, after checking Lowes and finding there were absolutely no matching hinges (are the dimensions and finish really that odd?? Let me answer that with a firm YES.)
I took to Amazon and ordered what I needed. …so I thought.
Once the hinges arrived I found they were too wide!
(ALWAYS BET THINGS ARENT WHAT THEY SEEM!…Just in case..)
Where it occurred to me that I could go with an entirely different style of hinge!
Therefore no stressing over those stripped holes I had already Bondoed (Yes, thats really a verb,.. at least to me) was no longer an issue. After all, once I found the replacement hinges-the screws may have never bit into the existing holes anyways! ….blessing in disguise..
By the way.. notice the pegs to the non existent shelf?
I had the base coat down and no sanding was needed,.. Seriously, it was flawlessly laid, I was able to concentrate on details. Using my white in a wash, I brushed it on and used my sponge to strategically wipe it away.
..they were perfect.
So what do you think? Should Mrs C be happy?
What about MR C??
…and what do you know,.. they loved it. 🙂 You didnt have doubts did you? This is perfect idea of what you can accomplish with a Pure & Original Classico Sample Set or their chalky-package deal!
Happy Painting Yall!!
