Curior Makeover Update

The curio makeover is under way, but still much work before it's ready for prime time.  After completing the first coat on Monday night, I noticed Tuesday morning that there was still a lot of the original finish showing through.  I decided I need a second coat before I get into the sanding phase.

I also had the unfortunate realization that I would have to do the inside of the piece too because it's so visible with all the glass.  Heavy sigh....  So wasn't on board for that.  See what I mean?  What made me think I could get away without painting the interior?  Duh!

I did start on the inside and do a second coat on the outside last night.  I am out for a while tonight, but am hoping to finish enough of it to be able to sand and apply toner (the final step) on Thursday so that it's complete by Friday.

Wish me luck!
