Here is 1st coat of black.


I'm leaving the inside white, but I'm painting white, not just primer.

Still need another coat of black on the stand, 2 coats of primer and black on the back-side of the doors. I'm also going to put down a head of caulk around the floor of the stand just as a precaution.

I have another two coats of white to go inside the stand. Finally, I have to construct a canopy and paint to match.

Should be another week or two as I only have weekends and its the holidays.

Here's the idea for the canopy:

Looks really good. I like the white inside the cabinet even though you're rarely going to see it I think it looks good.
