A Vintage Cabinet with a Coastal Charm

I am not sure if I can call this project “coastal”, but I do anyways because of its colors.

The beautiful woodwork of the sliding doors were almost invisible in the dark wood, so I think this transformation brought a lot of light and life to this piece.

If you want to know how I did it, check out this post from a while ago where I give you a full tutorial. I used exactly the same colors and techniques in this one, and although it can feel a bit boring to repeat the same finish in several projects, I never get tired of looking at the final result.

My customer was very happy with it, and so was I. I have the filling this will not be the last time I do this finish. Maybe I should give it a name.











Thanks for reading!

It all started in the spring of 2013. I realized how tired I was to see my house entirely decorated with IKEA stuff. Nothing against IKEA, but after 12 years, I just needed some change. I wanted stylish, original furniture, but noticed that everything I liked from retail stores was way out of my budget. Thanks to Google, Youtube, and a couple of amazing blogs, I was able to discover and explore the world of furniture refinishing, and it was the beginning of my addiction. I now spend my days rescuing old, dull, unwanted pieces of furniture to give them a fresh look so they can be displayed, used and loved again for many more years to come. Thanks for stopping by.
