Evolution of a Cabinet: Final post in Novo Decor Co. "kick-off" furniture re-furbish event

This is my final wrap-up on the Quasius cabinet  "reveal" series.   I hope you enjoyed it.  I know I did.  It has been a blast sharing the before/after photo and the final reveal video!  And I was tickled pink with the great comments!  I took many pictures throughout the process because It's always fun to go back and look at how a project evolved.   I thought I'd share some of those photos with you......

Here are the submission photos I received back in May:  

   Here she is in my "workshop": 

With all the liquor and glassware removed....you can see all the surface area!

Painting begins (photo quality below is blurry but you can sure see that pink!)....

Gold trim and gold shelves completed....

Painter's tape was my friend!

Larger more demanding projects can sometimes make us furniture painters a little...."nutsy" shall we say?   But all in good fun.....I love the "nutsy" part.   My son took this picture of me toward the end of the project.....I think I can I think I can.   Almost done....

I thought the front could use a little design detail.  This was a challenge for me but after debating several  options I decided to go with some fun, asymmetrical gold stripes.

And, once again here she is:  (I think I set a personal record of how many photos I could take of one piece!) 

Quite a difference.... and I am thrilled it turned out this beautiful.   It is definitely a bold piece, and I really hope a statement piece as well!    Thank you Michelle for submitting it!  I was happy to do this for you and I learned a ton along the way.    I hope you and your family enjoy your new piece for years to come!   Here she is below; in the home where she belongs, and where she looks amazing!
