Well it’s cold again.
Spring did officially arrive last week…. didn’t it?
Where’s the sunshine and the warm breezes?
I made a trip to the Nashville Flea Market yesterday and just about froze!
I came home with a few fun items but no great furniture piece.
I’ll share the trip with you tomorrow.
DIY Furniture Makeover
The $5 cabinet from My Favorite Junk Shop is spruced up and ready to hold laptops, modems, routers, blah-blah-blah.
This is how the cabinet looked when I brought it home…a gutted, drawerless, vintage chest.
The veneer was peeling and I removed most of the veneer from the top and one side.
The JTS cut some shelves for me…..I painted them….he attached them to the cabinet with a nail gun.
Don’t know what I would do without the JTS.
I wasn’t around when he was cutting the shelves so no pics of that.
I used Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Boxwood for the outer casing.
I lightened the dark green shade of the Boxwood with MMSMP in Ironstone.
Since the cabinet was a mixture of stained veneer and raw wood (where the veneer was removed), I knew the paint would not chip evenly so I added the MMS Bonding Agent.
The inside and the shelves are painted with Off-White Reclaim.
I wanted the cabinet to be rough and shabby looking…and it is
The plan is to pair this piece with the White Desk and Chair I painted last week.
I’m hoping to organize all of our computer stuff.
It will probably still be a mess. Cords everywhere!!!
I’ll give you a peek at the set-up once I get everything organized.
Is the cabinet too shabby for you?
If it is….that’s ok….I understand completely…..
Leave me a little note below.
I love hearing from you.
