Furniture Makeover: Corner Cabinet

28 Jul

Hey everyone! I am so excited to finally share the corner cabinet makeover!!

002 beforeandafter

This cabinet has been a pass down in my family and I loved where it fit my home but it stood out like a sore thumb! Sure the bright white looks clean (minus the amount of stuff is in it) and it doesn’t look bad but I wanted it to blend a little more. Our kitchen and hallway area is two toned. A Dark tan and a light tan so I wanted to use both of those aspects in this piece and I wanted it to be fun!

I took it outside to get it ready! A quick sand, wipe down, and removed the shelves to paint separately.

I painted the inside first (since it’s the most awkward) and let it drive so I could put the shelves in with ease.

Next step was painting the rest of it and letting this dry really good since I would be putting tape on top of it. If you don’t let it dry overnight you can risk the chance of the tape pulling up some of the fresh paint.

I taped off where I wanted to paint, and did another quick paint using the same color (this keeps the colors from bleeding through the tape so you can get a great straight line!

Once that was dry I went over it with the lighter tan and peeled the tape off while it was still wet.

The lines turned out GREAT! I was really happy with the finished look – especially the top!

Let it dry again and then you are good to go!

Now it’s time to fill it with goodies and keep it nice and organized this time 😉
