It had interesting and unusual details and I felt that it would be so much prettier after it had been painted. This was mid-August with only a few weeks before the cabin would close. I thought it would make a great anchor piece and hopefully sell before closing up for the winter. Lol, that didn't work out as planned. I usually stay away from really trendy colors on large pieces. While they are very striking, they don't always sell well here. The life span of a piece with an unusual color can be shorter. I take a lot of care and time so that my paint jobs hold up, so it can make removing them difficult. So, late in the process of painting this piece a lovely trendy turquoise color, I realized that the new paint that I was using just did not meet my standards for durability. I just was not happy with it.
I think this and another cabinet I did for the same customer will compliment each other nicely.
