Giving an Icebox a New Color Makeover for Our Summer Porch

It's not a real icebox it's just a replica. It wouldn't be worth the time to strip and refinish since it's just cheaply made and not quality wood. But it was perfect for our front porch once we gave it a makeover with a fun, cheerful color...
A fun cheerful color on this icebox is just what our summer porch needed to liven it up!

It was tired and worn, all it's finish flaking off.  But it was only a replica...not worth going to the trouble of refinishing with stain.

A free quart of paint+primer in one gave this little cabinet a new lease on life.

    @Gretta Frick Thanks! Yes, I did remove the brass pieces...just a quick whirl of the cordless screwdriver and they were off. They had a perfectly aged patina so I did not want to mess with them!
