As decorative painters, we used to have a saying,
"The wood has to season."
That was the excuse for buying wood
when we already had quite a bit.
It was the excuse for not painting some wood.
It was really
"I can't figure out what to paint on that."
This cupboard door has been in the basement stash/hoard
Four years actually.
I remember when and where
I had to have it.
Shelby was with me and pregnant.
Kendall is over three now.
It "seasoned" well.
It was ready!
