|Ahhhh. Much better.|
I think it turned out quite lovely, right down to the rough texture underneath the creamy paint, and it really is exactly what I needed for storage. I even had just enough paint left over to repaint a little whatnot shelf I found at the flea market more recently. I had actually liked the minty green the shelf was originally painted, but unfortunately it didn't go in any room in my house. So, rather than relegating it to a back corner of the garage (using up some of the precious space that the thingee had previously occupied), I used up the last of the linen-colored paint from the dresser and, voila, something I can hang in my living room and fill with holiday-themed collectibles.
