Record Cabinet Make Over

5 Materials
4 Hours

I got this mid century record cabinet at a yard sale for $15! The color was an ugly brown and was not made of wood, so I knew I was going to paint it! Check out how I gave it a new look.

I started with 2 coats of primer. Then picked a bold color called Caribbean Current!

Once it was painted it was time for something extra! :) I decided to paint a hexagon design on this piece. To do that, I used a single hexagon tile left over from a previous project (making coasters) and drew them on with a blue sharpie.

I had some leftover paint and used those to color in the hexagons! I applied a clear coat once the design was finished ( matte policrylic coat)
