Repainted small faux locker

Alvin bought me this for Mother's Day and I really didn't like the finish, so I took it completely apart and primed and painted it as below. I still want to roughen up the edges by sanding some of the paint off, but it has been raining every day for over a week. I like the rain, but after a while, when it keeps me from re-doing something, I want it to go away, but not likely for now. I will store some craft supplies in it or put it in my bathroom. My friend has a real wooden locker from a school they tore down and I would love to have one like it.Who knows,maybe with some luck I can go to the Huge Antique shop in Jennings and find one that is priced good for my budget or put it on layaway----Bobby has that, Yea!

On another topic, my younger sister came by today and it turned out to be a pleasant visit. Maybe there is still hope for our family to get back together, but she did put all the blame on me. So I don't know what to do or think about that. I have to admit, after she left, it made me miss them again, so I am going to just put it in God's hands and go about living the way I do now, A much happier and cheerful Pat who once again enjoys crafting. Have a great day everyone who stops by for a visit or even reads my blog. Hugs, Pat

Hi Pat:
Every time I see you with the short hair I love it more : ) you did a nice caring thing giving it to Locks of Love!
I still have the exquisite card you made for me when I had my 1st spine surgery in '07; it is so special to me. Mary (isabellascloset) and I always talk about how super creative and unique your cards are!!!
You sound happier now. I hope all is well for you!!!
