From Blah to Beautiful!


This cabinet received a complete overhaul!
I believe it used to house a stereo of some sort.
It's second time around, it can be used for all kinds of great storage!
For dishes in a kitchen, clothes in a bedroom, blankets, in a bathroom to store towels, etc. And for those of you who like to sew, you could store all your fabric in here!


It was quite a job getting these shelves back into working order!



I covered all the shelf surfaces with anaglypta.


Now her insides look as pretty as the outside!

She's ready for her hardware, I used the 
original hardware and spray painted them black.

Now time for a little distressing and she'll be ready to go!

  2. Those before pictures were so bad that it's hard to believe the after is the same piece. It is very charming painted white though.

  3. Truly amazing before and after B! I am in love with the new mirrors from your store. Can't wait to play today with them. I think you should get Sullivan to snap a pic of you in your smashing green coat for a new blog pic! What do you think? I loved that coat, by the way, I have one like it in hot pink.
