like I mentioned before the base was damaged so the first thing I did was take this puppy of the base and added hairpin legs
It's Five O'clock Somewhere A.K.A Drinks Cabinet Makeover
I have upcycled many bar cabinets but this one had a rather boxy shape the base was damaged and the wood grain on it was meh...
So I decided to jazz it up a little.
Assess the damage
Repair the damage
Once it was off the base I screwed on the hairpin legs and it already looked much better. The wood parts actually weren't in bad shape, so i was excited that I could skip sanding this piece.
Apply painters tape
It was time for that razzle dazzle! I taped out my design and decided to opt for a gold spray paint this time. The reason for that is that I didn't sand my piece as the finish was ok. Spray paint was going to stick to the already finished surface.
applied 3 coats
The secret of applying spray paint is to apply it one light coat at a time. Let it fully dry between coats that way you won't end up with runny paint.
I decided that I needed more gold on this piece so I took off the back panel and spray painted that gold as well
Putting all together
Once all my design was done which was mostly gold and black, I reassembled the cocktail cabinet, applied danish teak oil on the wood parts and staged it 😊
As you can tell I added a lot more gold to it that way it can really shine at those cocktail parties! If you liked this transformation and would like to see more in real time follow me on Instagram @andreapalmai
