Wow, it turned out great. When you had mentioned painting it white, I couldn't imagine it. Must be why you are on So You Think You Can Design (name?) and I am not. I am a faithful HGTV watcher, but honestly nothing has rubbed off.

Wow, this is quite a transformation! When I saw the first picture I have to say that I thought that I would be reluctant to change anything about it but it really does look better! How clever you are!

Best wishes,
Natasha.
