Continuing with the low budget, practically no budget, happification of my kitchen decor next on the list was my vintage 70s kitchen china cabinet.

Here's the before. I painted it like this to go with my Royal Albert Country Roses china, but after many years and just like the rest of my kitchen I was ready for a change to a lighter and brighter decor.

The first thing I did was paint the inside with two coats of white with the same paint and primer combo that I used on the kitchen walls.

This is Take 2 of the outside of the cabinet, which is a mixture of my kitchen cupboards colour and white paint. To check out my Take 1 mistake click on the link at the end of this post.
Since I love colour this was just a tad boring for me.

After looking around for a while I found this fabulous polka dot gift wrap at the dollar store for, what else, $1. I didn't even use the whole thing so technically this cost me about 50 cents..

I measured the inside areas of the cabinet and cut out the pieces.

I simply attached the gift wrap with pieces of double sided tape.

This way I can feel free to change it anytime in the future if I want to.

To finish it off I spray painted the hardware a nice bright red.

And the happified after.

It was so easy an inexpensive to totally transform this piece into a bright and happy place to display my future milk glass collection. I've always admired milk glass and now I have a place to show off my future finds. I'm so looking forward to garage sale season this year. Maybe I'll get lucky!

    Looks great!! I get what you said to a question needing to brighten it up. I have one similar,( big & brown)!!!!I did the back of mine althougah hint::; at the dollar tree I used the foam board & cut & covered it that way it was easier to smooth it

    Cute!. I had just "papered" mine with the textured/paintable wall paper for a new look. What a difference, good job

      Thanks so much Sheila! that textured wallpaper is fun to work with too. I just got a bunch at a garage sale for a future project.

    what a fun idea ! I love the way that you woke up the cabinet , it seemed so tired before and without personality . Great job
