It is finished! I can just hear Grandmother saying, "Oh goodness sakes! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have."
While painting, mom told me that Grandmother bought the china cabinet in July of 1981... when she came to North Carolina to see her new granddaughter. Her very first grandbaby. That's me! She came up from Miami, cooed over me, then loaded up the car to go furniture shopping. New baby, new china cabinet. I kind of feel an extra emotional connection to this thing, now! Needless to say, it is IN the studio, but it is NOT for sale.
However, if enough people flip out, I will consider making similar cabinets.
