Painted Cabinet

If you have been on my blog before I love trying new things. I have bought a piece of furniture before that I have added beautiful papers to. My red bird hutch, for example.

The same day I bought the paper for the hutch I also bought a paris postcard paper that I fell in love with. With the open house around the corner I knew this would make a great statement in the store.

I went with red again because of Christmas. It is such a cute cabinet that would look good in a bathroom or kitchen.....shoot it would look good anywhere!

It was pretty grungy and dull but we all know that is why we paint!! This piece has the perfect storage and the glass doors add some elegance to it. I knew I needed the perfect knobs. You know me and my knobs lol! I found a rustic Fleur de Les knob to use.

I painted a dark grey to the inside of the whole cabinet. Added the paper like I did with my red hutch and waxed to finish it off. Wish I could say that it was easy but the weather did not cooperate. Next time I will not do it with extreme temperature. I took a lot longer than I anticipated and when there is a deadline that leads to ton of stress.

All and all I think it came out adorable. It now graces the window!

Love how the color just transforms the piece. Don't you just love the little postcards and stamps!

So much fun to add something different!
