Hi everyone.. I finally I have a furniture makeover I can share with you! After so many months of painting walls and fixing up our house, I actually got to paint a piece of furniture and it is turquoise!!!! YAY!! I have accumulated so many pieces of furniture through the years, but this cabinet was actually the first thing I ever bought for our first apartment over 10 years ago! We had it for a few years before I caught the bug of painting and started to experiment. I don’t have the before picture but imagine light beech effect laminate!
I think this was also one of the first pieces I ever upcycled!
Well enough about the history of it, since we moved in our new house we got some new sideboards that I still need to paint, so this piece was really just gathering dust in the garage. As it has lots of drawers and great storage I decided I would re-paint and use it for my craft room. As you know my craft room is going to be done on a very tiny budget, so the less money I spend the better!
Removing the old paint was so easy! I used my heat gun and the old paint quickly was gone!! After quick sand and clean, it was ready to be painted again!
I am not normally someone who loves bright colours, but I thought I should really challenge myself a little. I won this gorgeous Everlong paint and when I looked through the colour palette I really fell in love with the Kingfisher shade. A little brighter than my usual pastel tones, but I thought I should give it a go!
The paint arrived and oh my, what a gorgeous colour it is! At first I planned to paint the top and the sides turquoise and the rest in nice cream colour. Well I am so glad I changed my mind and painted the whole cabinet instead! I thought it may be a little plain so I added a little beading to create a small elegant frame on the doors!
I added some gorgeous glass knobs from D. Lawless Hardware. I am so in love with it I can’t tell you!! This cabinet adds a little splash of colour in my gorgeous craft room, which is almost finished!!!
I can’t wait to share the craft room makeover with you very soon! For now, here is my Turquoise beauty!!
