From Trash to Treasure

I came across this mid century display cabinet on Facebook market place. The sliding glass doors reminded me of my grandmother's furniture, so I went ahead and bought it eventhough it was made of cheap laminate.

This is how it looked before

American paint compan y provided me with the paint. I used the white one as my base color to make this cabinet as bright and modern as it can be.

After many coats

So here I made a huge mistake...but I'm here to share it with you so you don't make it yourself. I was out of frogtape but found electric tape so I decided to use that. Big mistake!

Once I pulled off the electric tape the white paint came with it!!!🤯🤯

So I ended up going to home depot, got some frogtape and taped it up again after fixing the paint.

Just use frogtape please.

Its starting to look cool

I added the legs

I added another stripe on the side with copper color spray paint. It was time for staging and pictures

This turned out to be such a nice piece if you like it follow me on Instagram @andreapalmai to see more of my transformation
