Cabinet-Take 3

This is how she started.  Sad but functional.

And then she went red.  I liked her lots more.  Cause, you know…she at least had character. Then, we got a new table.  And suddenly we had no more room for her in the kitchen.  I seriously almost sold her {{begged for someone to take it}}.  For one, it was broken and the doors always fell off.  Two, it was painted hastily.

Darn...she needed a makeover.

So I stripped her down…bye bye red!DSC_8391Hello primer!  DSC_8389
My first thought was white…then I remembered the leftover paint from the garage walls. DSC_8384Some stain, baskets and new hardware…and hello new entryway cabinet.

After:
EDIT: The baskets are from Target.  The stain is Minwax Dark Walnut.  The paint is Scarborough from the Olympic paint line at Lowes.

I love how you took the doors off to show-off those cane baskets. It adds a whole new layer of texture. Those baskets would look so cute with some numbers or letters stenciled on them too.

What a great Do It Yourself project. You are a clever and creative gal.

I just completed a project that took 23 years. Come take a peek.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Oh my gosh, what a great transformation! It looks like a totally different piece! I love that you took the doors off and used baskets. Plus, using paint you already had ~ genius, because it looks so great with it and the stained top. I'll bet you've got lots of people who want to take it off your hands now! : )

Undeniably consider that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be mindful of.

I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst folks think about
concerns that they just don't recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thank you
