Cabinet Revamp

by Melissa

 

BEFORE

I bought this cabinet for $20 bucks back in the summer of 2008 with the intentions to paint it and make it all cute. Fast forward 4 years later and it finally got a coat of paint.

I blame it on the fact that I had a 6 month old at the time, we moved that fall and then we moved again last Spring. Excuses… Excuses! I loved the piece though so it made it through two moves with us. I was determined to eventually get it painted.

The good news? It finally got a nice coat of Valspar’s Homestead Resort Pale Olive and I love it. 🙂

 
 
AFTER

The new knobs…

The knobs reminded me of something out of Anthropologie but I picked these up at Hobby Lobby for $3 each (50% off).

What’s your favorite color to paint furniture?

Love the revamp. I tried to re-purpose when I can but have been extremely lazy.

It takes a lot of time. I admit, this piece sat right were it was at in the first picture probably for 2 weeks. Life just gets in the way.

I’ve done so much painting in the past several years that sometimes the thought of picking up a paint brush makes me cringe. haha

I love all of this and I adore color and revamping. What I am very curious to know is where did you find the cabinet for ‘$20’ (and any other such items) as I enjoy quality bargain shopping as well. I am redecorating at the moment so this information is really coming in handy. The colorfully unique knobs you put on are a great touch by the way.

I found the cabinet at a local flea market. Check out local thrift stores, antique stores, flea markets, yard sales, craigslist, etc. They are great places for cheap finds that a can of paint can totally redo.
