This summer you might remember a little garage sale I had to unload all the junk I didn't know I had until I moved. At the end of the sale, there was a lone cabinet sitting near my garage that hadn't found a new home. And there was good reason. It had lived a hard life. My co-garage-sale-host was going to leave it on the curb. Not even the $10 price tag could fetch a sale. But, I saw the potential.Below are the before photos of the two separate pieces. They stack together to complete the cabinet. I took a tip from Centsational Girl and used an oil-based primer. That's right. Just a quick wipe down to remove any dust and I started painting. No sanding required. For the more intricate detail on the bottom half of the cabinet, I used a smaller paint brush. It looks atrocious, but the first coat is always scary. After 2-3 coats of the primer (depending on the area of the cabinet), I finished with 1-2 coats of a white gloss spray paint. The spray paint gave it a nice sheen, and insured there was no wood peeking out from below. Drum roll please. Topped off by new hardware, here is the finished product. Since I ended up getting the cabinet for free, my project costs included: One gallon primer, foam brushes/roller refills, new hardware and spray paint. Most of the paint supplies I already had in my garage. Sure beats the cost of buying something similar new from a furniture store. And for my next project...What do I put in it?
