Thrifting Thursday – Cabinets

cabinet makeover

Last week when I was thrift shopping with my sister I came across this cabinet, and just fell in love. It has the cutest shape, with sweet little legs, and it was pretty cheap too! So I bought it to sand, and paint…


Some of the wood wasn’t in the best of shape, and they had replaced that middle shelf with some sort of particle board, not very lovely at all. I got paint from Sherwin Williams (the color is larchmere).

My thrifted thermos collection fits perfectly on top (in a thrifted metal basket haha)

It has a drawer that is perfect for all my dishtowels and potholders…

My Santa collection fits in the glass-doored part perfectly, and I love the red & aqua together :)

Plus all my tea supplies have a spot!

    That cabinet is beautiful! I love everything about it, the color, the legs, and the Christmas decor looks amazing in it. What a great find, and project!

    That turned out beautiful. I need to take a closer look at furniture pieces at the thrift store that need a little love.

    It reminds me greatly of the same cabinet my mom and I found almost 8 years ago at our salvation army store. I love the blue, it matches the background of your rain drops!

    I love your cabinet too! But what I love most is how you DO things– I would have thought about the cabinet but left it behind and regretted it OR bought it and let it hang out looking sad and keep thinking about how I should sand and paint it– but you get stuff done! Very inspirational.

  8. I love the cabinet and the color you chose. I want one!
