Painting the Sideboard and more...
This morning didn't start well. I learned that you don't put cracked pop-tarts in the toaster. Part of it broke off and caught fire. I turned and saw a small flame coming out of the toaster! Dealt with that right quick and continued on with my day. At noon I decided that I would pop one of those small banquet berry pies in the microwave. I always use the minimum time on the microwave just in case. I was supposed to leave it in there until it was "golden brown and emitting steam". Well it wasn't brown and there seemed to be quite a bit of steam. When I opened the microwave door, it wasn't steam, but smoke! Good grief, I burned this too. So as you can imagine, it was with much trepidation that I entered my shop this afternoon. I figured I'd be pretty safe with a bottle of paint and a brush. After thinking about the color I should paint the sideboard, I remembered that my sister-in-law had mentioned that she also liked blue, so I dug out my Folkart Baby Blue paint
So this little sideboard got its first coat of baby blue and was set aside to dry.
