I'm not 100% sure of either, I just know I have a lot of furniture that used to belong to my parents, and I'm giving them a lick of paint for the little house. With that in mind, here is an old cabinet that used to sit in my parents hall, which was filled with trophies from their days playing sports.
So here is the before shot. It had seen better days, and sadly the fabric at the back had lots of tears in it. Also, Mum had lost the keys to the locks many years ago.
And here is the after shots. Sorry the light was not great when I photographed it. I used the Grand Illusions Vintage Paint, in Earl Grey, and then a wax over the top. The back has been wallpapered with the paper left over from our bedroom. And of course new keys.
I'm really pleased with it. I had a moment of panic when I started painting it, but I'm sure Mum and Dad would love it. I'm filling it with glasses and putting it under the stairs at the little house.
I have so many of these upcycling projects on the go ... and I'll share more with you.
