Cabinet Upcyle

The concept of "Upcycling" is simply giving old items new life...and that's exactly what I did with this latest DIY project. I found this old retro cabinet at the thrift store last year. I only paid $15 for it. I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with it, so it had been sitting in my garage the entire time. Last week, I finally decided to put it to good use. After a little clean-up and some paint, this lovely darling now serves as the new liquor cabinet in my living room. It took me a while before I came to a decision on what painting method I wanted to use for this project. Since the cabinet was laminate, staining it was not possible. (You can only stain real wood or wood veneer). With laminate, the only options would be to hand paint it with latex paint or use a glaze OR spray paint. So, I chose to use a metallic gold spray paint....and Presto Change-o....we have a beautiful new accent piece!!!!     BEFORE cabinet - BEFORE     cabinet2     cabinet     feature     cabinet3Google
