Ikea Cabinet Makeover Before and After


I purchased this Ikea Cabinet at a local thrift store for $15. I lived with the blonde color for a while, but I'm a fan of color and this baby needed some life.
Who says blondes have more fun?
I painted it with Webster's Chalk Paint powder and red paint. Added the blue on the doors and then used a stencil to add the red accents on the doors.
Cost $30 total.

I was concerned with the paint sticking, but the chalk paint went on smooth and easy. No sanding needed.
