I started by taking off the door and legs and started sanding . Sanded with an electric sander with a 120, 220 and 320 grit sandpaper.
Coolest Little Record Cabinet
Vinyl is back in style, so when I came across this cute little Frazier cabinet I snached it up right away! It had dark lacquer over it and i know I wanted to free her from that right away
Legs were sanded and the tips were spray painted gold to give it a fresh new look.
A little razzle dazzle
I like to add just a little razzle dazzle to all my pieces, something that makes them unique and one of a kind. Since this was going to hold records and a record player I wanted it to be a really fun piece. I decided on a black/white and gold color scheme and let me imagination fly. I settled on triangles that would be dropping down the side and front. ( it will make sense in a bit)
I used a pencil and ruler to draw my triangles then used painters tape to make sure the lines were sharp.
I used a generic painters tape on this project as that was what I had on hand and it worked fine. I used white and black valspar furniture paint and some gold acrylic paint.
Painting was a time consuming part of the project because i had to wait for each triangle to dry before I could paint the next one as most of them were overlapping. But I stuck to my design plan and carried on. Once everything was dry I applied 2 coats of polyurethane clear coat and it was all done!
