It was driving me nuts the way I had it, and it stayed up on my refridgerator for a couple of days while I re-thought it. But now it's refinished or restored, whichever way you want to look at it. and Thank goodness! I think it looks much better now. And even though it's not my fave of all time, I had a good time using the crackle paint (my new love) and the stickles. So here it is! Whew! No more worrying about.
