Small Display Cabinet Revived

I loved the sunshine and breezes this past week. It was another chance to do more painting on the back deck. 

Next project - a small display cabinet. This is the 'after'.


I didn't take a before but it was partially painted in gloss white. It looked like an easy paint job. Wasn't.

I repainted in CeCe Caldwell Simply White and CeCe Caldwell Santa Fe Turquoise and waxed with ASCP Soft Wax.

This garage sale find a week ago Saturday had been partly painted with a high gloss white outside with lots of paint on the glass. It was a time hog for changing in into a turquoise/white display small cabinet, especially cleaning dried paint off the glass.



Cabinet before inside of door was painted (below). The inside and base had the same before look (unpainted).




Last two posts - turquoise/white painted furniture - here, here.



Something I found out by accident when using PicMonkey to edit these photos - if you choose COLORS and then choose NEUTRAL PICKER and click on any grey or off coloured white (once) in your photo the off colour whites become WHITE. 

Click on APPLY to save the colour change if you like the look.




Happy Dance!

Thanks for visiting today.

  1. What a delightful little cabinet. Love the contrasting color on the inside. Don't you wonder about how some people learned to paint or rather how not to? LOL

  4. Hi Joy,

    You do such precise work! This is a perfect example of the difference between sloppy me and you! Thanks for playing today.

    I wish you could visit Florida and get some fresh blueberries.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  12. That came out so pretty! I've noticed that turquoise color on a lot of painted furniture pieces in antique malls around here. It's pretty popular. I bought a metal single file drawer for 25 cents last weekend and my hubby spray painted it white and turquoise for me. It looks really nice and when its done drying I will post about it.

  17. Oooh! I like. It just dawned on me that I think I have a similar cabinet but it is stained a very dark mahogany. I really like the aqua and white! Thanks for sharing with Let's Talk Vintage!"

  19. What a delightful and charming cabinet! I love the pop of blue on the inside. I have a bland cabinet and I think maybe it needs some cheerful color on the inside :) Thanks for sharing with Roses of Inspiration - I love having you at the party!
