I have received several comments from you. Many of you tell me that you miss my makeovers. Some of you tell me that you just miss my blogging. So…… I thought I would not only blog today, but also share a makeover. Yep, you heard me correctly. Do you all remember this cabinet?
I bought it for $2.92 right before our thrift store closed the doors for business. I bought it back in April and was trying to decide where to put it. I was debating my laundry room or my half bath. Well, I am pretty pleased with my laundry room so I thought the half bath would be great. I just knew that before I put it in my bathroom that it would definitely need a makeover. Here is a picture of it after I sanded it and removed those awful knobs.
I wanted it to be prim so off the doors came and out came the paint to match my cabinet doors that were already in there.
I decided on Olde Brick Red from Olde Century Paints. Here is what it looks like after the coat of paint and a couple coats of rubbed on Dark Walnut Stain. What do you think?
Looking good – huh? Well, I took an extra step with this cupboard. I knew it needed one more thing and I knew exactly what it was. It needed a prim coffee stained curtain. Yep, that is what it needed. I pulled out the sewing machine and went to work. I coffee stained some muslin that I had and started hemming my curtain.
Here is what it looked like when I was done with the curtain. I thought that the curtain needed something a little extra so I sewed on a homespun patch to match the cabinet. Didn’t it turn out great?
Looks alot better then this before picture ~ don’t ya think?
I can’t stand those ugly towel racks that they put up on the wall. They must put them on with cement. Anyway, after the cabinet and curtain was complete….. it was time to decorate. Here is the finished project!! I was real pleased with it and it added so much more to my bathroom.
The picture is a little crooked, but trust me the cabinet is up straight (lol).
Hope you all enjoyed the makeover. I have so much more to share including a new Fall purchase from the open house at North Shore Primitives, antique store finds and some GREAT yard sale finds. Those are all going to be happening early next week so keep watching.
Hope you all have a blessed weekend.
Until Next Time ~ Stay Happy!!
