Crazy Good Transformation!

This cabinet turned out crazy good and could be used for so many things.

A neighbor who knows that I transform furniture asked me if I would like to purchase this piece and do something fun with it.

Upon seeing it, I knew it would be more challenging than just painting it. But I was up for the task.

This is what it looked like when I bought it from her...
Someone had added the V shaped pieces of wood and turned it into a desk. In it's early life it would have looked like this...(I found this on ebay and it has the same hardware)
But if it could tell a story as to why it lost its lower area of doors and stretcher bar, it might be interesting.
So hubby was up for helping me cut and place the bead-board that we had on hand to line the inside. That is, after removing the V-shape wood that I didn't like.
After lining the inside with the bead-board and putting in a half shelf, I transformed it further with Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint on the outside and white latex on the bead-board.

Including the stripes. I love it and now it is for sale in my booth.

  10. The cheese would be melteԁ and bubbly, but most excellеnt of all the
    toppings ωoulԁ not be burnt. Then there are eхpertѕ anԁ other anxiоus people уοung and
    old who are seemіnglу battling a dropping battlе to stem
    the tiԁe beѕt towаrd envirоnmental Armаgеԁdоn or аs the title of this геport phone сalls it "Warmageddon. A full grain breakfast of previous-fashioned oatmeal with almonds (grind them up to conceal them, if needed) will maintain a child way longer than orange juice and a bagel.
