This china cabinet makeover is still one of my favorite updates I’ve ever done. I completely believe that a little paint can bring anything back to life.
A while back I posted about all the great finds I bought at one of Faith Farm’s big sales.
One of the things I picked up was this fabulous china cabinet.
She was a little beat up, a little dirty and not stinky at all (always a bonus!). This was the one I was going to use for my house because I loved how tall it was, and that it had legs instead of sitting directly on the floor – I love that look!
So, after I sold my old one, I brought this one in, and there it stood, for way too long, empty and unpainted.
As I’m sure most of you know, life gets in the way of my big ideas, and projects don’t get done quick enough for my liking. So, not only was it just sitting there for so long, but I refused to put anything in it because it would just be a pain to take it all out again – therefore, more mess on the table.
For weeks, I scoured Pinterest for ideas on what color to paint it. I knew I wanted black, but I wasn’t sure if I wanted it all black. I looked at all kinds of combinations…
Black and white…
White with wallpaper background
I even thought about going navy blue…
I finally decided on just black. And then, it still sat until we got back from our trip up to see some family in NJ. But, I had to get it done before my family came to celebrate Easter and my daughter’s birthday last Sunday.
I have to say that I love how it looks now!
Another thing I loved about this cabinet is that it had the wire mesh detail.
I didn’t change the hardware yet – and I’m not sure I will. I kind of like it the way it is. Would you change it out? I can’t think of anything that would look better with this style of cabinet – but maybe I’m just not that imaginative.
And here’s a nice before and after so you don’t have to scroll back up to the top.
So, what do you think? Isn’t she a beauty now? I think I have to re-name her – “Big Bertha” doesn’t work anymore 🙂
