As you can see it was a little beat up and I had to think a little about what I was going to do. I decided to paint the whole cabinet white, but after I did that I wasn't too happy with it. I knew that I was going to cover the 3 shelves that went in the cabinet with vintage green wallpaper that had gold in the design. So, what I did was wallpaper the shelves and put them back in the cabinet. The shelves looked really nice but they stood out too much. I wanted everything to blend together. So, out came the green paint which was brushed on and rubbed on, a combination of techniques. After I did that I still wasn't satisfied so on went the gold paint which I brushed on in a random way.
I decided to keep the wooden knobs that came with the cabinet but I brushed on gold paint there also, but when the paint was dry I decided to add a little bling. I glued on some earrings. I clipped off the back of them and E6000 them onto the top of the knobs. I also added some tassels to hang from the handles which added a little more bling.
