I’m doing my happy dance! I finally finished painting my china cabinet. It brightens the room up so much! I guess it’s what they call a ‘statement piece.’ It took me three weeks from start to finish, but that’s because I didn’t devote all my time to it. After just painting the kitchen cabinets, I could only put a couple of hours a day on it. And not every day.
I almost forgot to get a before photo. I already had it emptied and the bottom doors off before I grabbed my camera.
I used the exact same painting technique that I used on my kitchen cabinets. You can read about that here.
Here’s a view with the glass doors opened. I covered foam board with fabric for the backing. I’ll show you how I did it in an upcoming post. Originally I was thinking about using a wide stripe fabric in gray and white. While digging online through several fabric sites, I accidentally found this fabric. It called my name, and my search was over. I found it at Michaels.
On top I have some of my blue and white jars.
It’s so pretty at night when I turn the cabinet lights on, even tho this picture isn’t too good.
This was the most complicated piece of furniture that I’ve painted. The glass sides and doors had to be taped both inside and out. We sprayed the paint on, and trying to get the inside with the shelf rails in the way, was a feat in itself. But the reward is worth all the effort.
I hope I’ve inspired you to take on a similar project.
I’m linking up to the parties on my side bar.
