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............................

    Hello Every One, My Name is Trevor Cohen live in Texas and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now. I really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling Dad with three kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my son encountered a terrible accident last week, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again, and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that credit score was bad, from there i run to my father and some of my freinds but they could not help, then when i was surfing through the net i came across a loan lender EDWARD JONES who provides loans at an affordable interest rate of 2% and i have been hearing about so many scams on the internet but at this time, in my desperate situation i had no choice than to give it a try and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $85,000.00 and i payed for my son surgery and thank GOD today he is okay and can walk. I could in turn start something profitable with the remaining amount and i said to my self that i will shout loud to the world of the wonders of GOD to me through this GOD fearing lender EDWARD JONES and i will advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this GOD fearing Company via:
