And now, the after....
She wasn't easy that's for sure.
I bought oil based, black paint by mistake (what a beast to work with) and my roller left lint all over. So I let it dry (which takes fer-eva) and sanded the lint off. Another BIG MISTAKE. It dulled the finish horribly and there was no fixing it. So I ended up back at ACO in town to sort through a handful of black paint tints to have a black latex paint mixed. Who knew black came in such a wide range of shades?!! So I painted her again and sanded the edges to accentuate the detail, popped on a new knob and voila!
I learned a lot on this project.
