My sister and I go thrift shopping once a week, we always grab a coffee and spend some time searching for treasure, I love being able to spend this time with her every week! Lately I have been keeping my eye out for a little cabinet to hold all my cookbooks. I spotted this little cabinet at the Salvation Army for $8 and knew it would be perfect. It had a cute shape but was made of particle board, so I knew I wanted to paint it. My sister suggested pink and I love how it turned out!
Here is a peek at the cabinet before and after primer.

    it is so cute! i love those little knee hugging devils too! I’ve never seen those in my area. I wonder if it is because down here people get all uptight about devil stuff! They don’t even say deviled eggs, it is always dressed eggs. Haha.

    Rae, haha oh thats so funny about the deviled eggs! My husband loves little devil themed things so for the past three years he has found a devil knee hugger in his christmas stocking. I’ve actually bought them on etsy and ebay—have never found one here. Although we have found other cute devil items.

    It turned out amazing! I’m usually pretty open minded about how you can change the way something looks by doing something as simple as painting it, but I think I might have walked right by that! It looks perfect with all of your things on it!

    Heatherica, I feel like some times I dont think enough about how paint can really change things up, but some times the cute spindly legs get me!
