I couldn’t wait to share this baby even though she’s not quite done as she needs a wax job.  It will be hard not to keep her for myself.

I was planning on just sanding her down and painting her, but she had a different plan.  She insisted I strip her down ~ which was my first ~ as I had no idea what I was doing initially but I finally caught on.  My mother-in-law was my expert advisor.

I’m really pleased with how she turned out.  I’ll take a better photo when she’s all done.
