From Shabby to Chic

Good Thursday!  Our weather here in Michigan is sure finicky.  We had a wet and a somewhat cool summer and now that kids are back in school we have 95 degrees and humid weather.  Oh, well that's Michigan for you.  Well, I have a fun little project for you, actually it took a little bit of time but I love the uniqueness of this cabinet.  When my husband brought this home I really liked it but it was so beat up.  I forgot to take the real before picture but here is the Kilz picture before I painted it a fun turquoise color.


I really liked the unique hardware that this little cabinet was sporting.
The skinny little door was fun, too.
So I started painting with a turquoise paint both inside and out.  It took a little bit of time and than the drawers would not fit back in so I had to sand some of the drawers down and than repaint.  When the paint was finally dry I came back to add some details and some shabbiness to the cabinet with white paint.  I just had a little bit of fun with this one and I think it is a little chic.


Isn't this hardware unique?
So here is my little cabinet all done.  What do you think?  Better or worse?
Until next time, Dianne............................
