We've all seen them, those enormous brown beasts that have been pushed aside and forgotten..you know...those china cabinets? No need to overlook them any longer because a simple update can take those classic pieces to a whole new level. With a new backing of designer wallpaper and a fresh coat of paint to cabinet and pulls. This brown beast is tamed and is now a show-stopping focal point.

The previous owner has this beauty stuffed in his barn and he couldn't get rid of it quick enough. I see potential and a challenge to boot.

Since our kitchen is in remodel mode (you can see it here: http://wp.me/p5GE1w-2Rc) , this was the best place for me to work on my project. Isn't my helper a cutie?

I chose a smoky gray chalky paint for the cabinet, a flat metallic for the pulls, and a gorgeous damask wallpaper for the backing. I couldn't be happier with the results!
