A Geometric Transformation. Simplified Cabinet.

Today I'm sharing another entry into The Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest.
This month the theme was Geometric Design and the sponsor was General Finishes, maker of fine water-based topcoats, stains, glazes and oil based finishes. You can see all the entries linked here at On Fern Avenue.
As soon as I saw the theme, I knew exactly what I was going to do and what color I wanted it to be. You see, I've had this project in my mind for quite a while and finally my projects and opportunities aligned. Don't you love when fate hands you moments like these?

Here's another look at the re-finished cabinet. And I do mean re-finished.
This piece of furniture has already had several reincarnations in it's lifetime. Initially it had legs and was used as a media cabinet. Then we moved and what we really needed was a bedside table. So, the legs were chopped off and it was painted and waxed. Then it got replaced with my last contest entry. Sorry this before photo is really of our modern barn doors, but you can see the ornate details of the original look of the cabinet on the right.
See how these little strips and General Finishes Milk paint transform the piece with a more simplified, geometric design.
