Voila! Ugly laminate be gone!It's a little shabby on top. The wood is split, but that's ok. It's exactly how I want it. If I need it for a more formal project in the future, I'll just cover it. For now, I'm in love.
Meanwhile...I bought this (heavy) plaque last month for $1.99. Price is right, eh? Color? Not so much.
Sing, birdies, sing! They're basking in the sun here. Either that or they're screaming for someone to get them out of that plaque.
Nothing like a black china cabinet and the sun setting to make you realize how badly you need to dust. Don't look too close!
