Spray Painting Furniture (Revisited)

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Every DIYer knows paint has the power to transform anything. Spray paint happens to be one of my favorite tools especially on small pieces of decor, but it can work really well on furniture too. A few years ago I wrote about spray painting furniture, and most of my tips are there, and today I wanted to share two pieces I recently finished, the first is a set of chests spray painted gloss black and the second is a console table spray painted white with gold detail.

$10 Cabinet Makeover

Monday, September 9th, 2013

So I’d been on the hunt for months for a little media console cabinet thingy to house books (for now) and a future flat screen TV (when the budget permits) for the studio above our garage. Lucky me, I popped into the Goodwill last week and I found this $10 cabinet that was the perfect size but not the coolest look at first glance.

But you know me, never deterred by initial appearances, I worked a little DIY magic on this old relic and brought it into this century with a modification that included new mirrored panels with a X pattern, primer, and white paint.

I think this bi-fold door cabinet would still be cool if all four panels were that raised geometric pattern but the iron grill combo totally threw me off.

Whatever the original designer was trying to say wasn’t working for me so the first thing I did was to verify the panels could be removed. Yep!

Oh but most importantly. Check it, ten dollars for solid wood.
