    Wowser! One of my favorite things to do when not quilting or knitting is furniture refinishing - I think it's all of a piece, color and texture and creativity takes many forms - and you did a fantastic job on the cabinet! Gives me a few new ideas for a bookcase I'm working on right now, thanks Candace!

    The transformation is remarkable! Great job!

    I love it when someone takes what many would consider 'junk' and turns it into a real treasure. You did a wonderful job -- the finish looks very smooth and its gorgeous!

    Looks really good. Sometimes a little extra $$ on the right product and you just kind of stick with it.

    I love the cabinet, it's a beauty, and i think i have a matching sewing seat for it. If i'm correct about the legs. It's a beauty.

    As the old saying goes, "you made a silk purse out of a sow's ear." Great job!

    Looks amazing Candace. What did you use, if you don't mind me asking? I'm really curious about this stuff since I painted my grandmother's dressing table and used water based paints (disaster) - I followed the recommendation of the guy at the paint store but I'm really unhappy with it. It's okay from a distance though. It's the one that I thought might inspire your 640-2 cabinet as I just went with the glossy black finish and it ended up looking Asian instead of French provincial .... didn't take much!!

    Very nice job! I admire people who can take something questionable and turn it into something beautiful. That looks very modern now.
    Go forth and sew!

    Candace, I need to have your expert ideas for about 100 tables...
