And she's done!

Hello All!

Have you ever decided to redo a piece of furniture with excitement and anticipation... especially when you've gotten a new 'toy' to play with?!?

Introducing Agnus...



She's a beauty, and with a $15.00 rebate at Menards, she's going to be worth the investment...

So,what did she want to tackle first?

How about this...





Yeah, a good cleaning (maybe) could get her by... but what if Agnus could make her look even better? Yes, it was time to give Agnus a chance to debut!

After a few (I won't tell how many) hours with Agnus and cabinet enamel paint we realized that regardless of what the label says on the paint can... thinning the paint is needed. We didn't attempt it this time, but for future reference if we'd like to shave 5 hours off our spraying time with Agnus... it's something to consider.

On the positive side of it, I have learned all of Agnus sweet spots! And at what angle my arm gets tired the quickest!

Now... to give Agnus her props...





I think she did a good job! How about you?

She and you did one heck of a job! That may have intimidated me. Are you keeping it or selling it?
