Meet ABE!!!



Well he's all done and up and looking beautiful (if I do say so myself)!!

I know my grandpa would be proud of it and I thank you all for your sweet responses to my previous entry. Your kind words really meant a lot and yes, you were right...naming this cabinet ABE makes it that much more special to me.

This is what it looked like before in two pieces on my dining room floor:




Below are more pictures of my finished product. Enjoy~












I'll be posting my before and after photos to various blogs. Check back for links to Before and After parties here.

What a difference - love the color. I never would have thought to use gray. I am a stick in the mud when it comes to deocrating colors:)
