Comment by DesignStaging: Happy August… paint gives this china cabinet a new lease on life…. wonderful diy post!

Hi Everyone! As promised, here is my china cabinet makeover.

I purchased this china cabinet at a store I love called Almost Paris Antiques. I got a really good price on it too! It is solid mahogany, all the doors and the drawer were in great condition. No major flaws except a bubble on the side. When I saw it, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I fell in love with the cut outs on the glass doors and the old brass pulls. The pulls were completely blackened by age and time. I wanted to make this a more modern piece but keep the old charm.

So, here is how I did it. A lot of people are scared to paint furniture, but if you use the right tools and technique it is so worth it!

Supplies:

Wood filler, that can be sanded and painted

the bedroom…

I am proud to say that I have grown to appreciate the sanctuary of my bedroom. Merriam-Webster defines a bedroom (noun) as a room furnished with a bed and intended primarily for sleeping. (*I know what you’re thinking..lol)  With that in mind, I have removed the television and added low lighting, a water fountain, and soothing music to achieve the total relaxation intended.

Today, we have a variety of styles to choose from, from tradition to bohemian, contemporary to avant-garde…  you can define your design style through the use of color, textures, linens, accessories, etc. Currently, my taste involves a more sterile environment – white linen, neutral accessories, and light & airy window treatments. This definitely helps with the laundry – no more sorting and having multiple loads. What is your style?

Check out some of my favorite styles for the bedroom on pinterest… enjoy and don’t forget to turn off the lights when you’re finished! 🙂
