This little cabinet is actually an old vinyl record cabinet that I picked up at GW for a couple dollars. It was the old brown veneer and I brightened it up with a little white paint – much better!
I have gotten a little bit crazy with my kitchen color accents lately and decided to add some turquoise to this little girl too!
The doors are sliding and easily come off so I thought I would just add a stencil to the doors. I didn’t have a stencil though so I had to make one myself.
I found a simple sign that I liked so I traced it out on cardstock and then covered the whole back with duct tape to help strengthen it. Then I used an exacto knife to cut it out.
I wanted the turquoise to be an accent and I didn’t want to repaint the white, so I just laid the doors out and traced the stencil on. Then I took a brush and painted on the turquoise inside the lines.
And – here she is now!
And with some matching painted goodies from the kitchen/dining area.
And the side-by-side comparison…
