We wiped it down with warm water and vinegar to get the dingy grime off. It cleaned up nicely. I really thought I was going to have to give it a complete overhaul stripping and repainting but I think it looks great the way it is. Yes, there are a few places where the paint it chipping and the sicker design on the windows is pealing but this is what gives it character, right?
I couldn't wait to load it up with my turquoise pottery. I have more packed in boxes that I need to get out of the garage. Maybe I'll do that next weekend. I'm still not sure about the red. It may be growing on me . . . We'll see. . .
