The story of my cabinet

Well my girls made a blog and they are making me write something so here goes. My husband and I bought this cabinet at a craft fair. I was really into country and we fell in love with this cabinet. It had heart cutouts on the door and I loved it. It was unfinished, so we brought it home to finish. We had never done this before so we put the stain on it working in the bright sun on the front porch. We left it on for a while and then tried to wipe it off. Well it was already dry and we couldn't get it off so we were stuck. I was so upset, because it was so dark. We were just starting out, had just bought our house and we didn't have much money for furniture. I started hand sanding it and it got some lighter, but not much. After a while I guess I got used to it, because it didn't seem so bad after all. Fast forward 25 years. I decided to paint it. I love the green color, it seems to brighten the corner where it sits. My husband made new doors for it, (no hearts) and it looks totally different now. I love it!
