Let’s brighten up the cabinet

Over the last few days I have been tackling the display cabinet in our living room. It’s never been my cup of tea as I am not an ornament kind of person but you compromise when you live with others. Dad loved browsing antique shops so it does give me some happy memories and I can hear him saying “don’t open the box, it will lose value” 😂

The dark display cupboard.

So I remove all six doors and between my car port and utility room I manage to spread them all out after sanding them lightly.

I’ve gone for the same colour as the small units in the living room as it does make it all appear brighter. I enjoy painting furniture but all the prep is frustrating.

After four days, Ben and I remove the painting tape, tidy the edges up and put the new handles on before placing them back on the units.

The end result looks rather refreshing and again makes that end of the room so much brighter. Another simple up cycle project.

The finished units.

No project would be complete without a cup of tea and a piece of cake, and as I didn’t have any cake in I whipped up a quick Lemon drizzle that I’d seen on line. Delicious.
