This small cabinet makeover is a great weekend project.
I don’t even remember where I got this old brown cabinet. Someone dropped it off to me, I didn’t buy it. I call it old, but it’s not really vintage at all. It’s the run of the mill white laminate cabinet. I had one in my kitchen for years and sold it before I started doing what I love to do. I wish I still had it, because it was a little wider than this one, and I could make it look so cute!
The glass in the top door is missing. I know exactly what paint was used on this piece. It’s Espresso semi-gloss. Whoever painted it, actually did a pretty good job considering the slick surface of the laminate.
Attach chicken wire on doors
I grabbed some chicken wire I curbed several years ago and cut it to size. I stapled it in place with a staple gun. I don’t like how sharp the wires are, so I decided to grab some gorilla toughgorilla tape. I ran the Gorilla Tape along all four sides to cover up the ends of the wire.
Voila! Isn’t she pretty now? I used Minwax furniture wax to seal it. The chalky paint primer has to have a top coat. Sometimes I use semi-gloss paint as the topcoat, and sometimes I use wax.
Where would you use this little gal?
