Before....(if you followed my old blog, you probably saw this before here with the story of finding this beauty...where I explain that my kids were making forts with blankets and that's why there is such a mess in the background....)
And some fresh paint, and new hardware....
I may have to change my mind about letting this one go....except I don't think black will look very good next to our walls....*sigh* I'm sure someone will fall in love with it :)
I had planned on keeping the original hardware, but some of it had been horribly bent...so I just went with all new, and I'll hang on to the good ones for another project.
