Makeover: French Provincial China Cabinet

by - Tuesday, February 22, 2011


I have a problem.  I’ve been buying things that I have no use for, I recently purchased two china cabinets and I don’t even have a dining room (more like a dining nook). 
This china cabinet was one that I couldn’t leave in the store--- it cost me $7 bucks with tax! The only thing wrong with it is that it was missing it’s shelves-Can you blame me?  I love the lines and curves of it.  It reminds me of Holly’s French Cabinet @ Life in the Fun Lane.

So I whipped out my good ol’ Behr Almond Cream Paint and with the help of my seven year old- we went to town.

Here are some BEFORE shots of it:

This piece is now for sale, as it’s taking up space in my little house!
