    Ref “Better Homes and Gardens” magazine, April 2017, pages 51-52. In this article you refurbished an old cabinet into a bar cart. I read all the steps which included removing the doors, sanding everything, applying 3 coats of paint on the outside and doors, hand embossing a drawer front, installing industrial piping, and adhering Con-Tac paper inside. And it states you did this all in 4 hours. I’m amazed! How on earth did you do it? For example, how long did you wait between coats of paint?

      Hi Leslie, It wasn’t done in 4 consecutive hours that’s for sure! But the trick to getting a project like this done quickly is to plan it out and have everything ready to go. While the first coat of paint is drying you can paint the bars and cut the contact paper, then apply the second coat of paint. (Using the sprayer that I used means that the light coats dry quickly.) Then the next project session is really about putting it together and adding the finishing touches. This blog post has the full tutorial. Thanks for your interest!
