Makeover Potential

I spotted this cabinet from Bobo Intriguing Objects on Pinterest and fell in love!
Such a beautiful mix of white paint and the wood trim!
The cheap frugal part of me wanted to see what kind of DIY options were out there.


I spotted this gun cabinet for $60.00 on Craigslist.
This is Texas after all.... ;)


Now use your "imagination"!
(some of you are totally saying this in Spongebob's voice)


1) Add crown moulding to the top of the cabinet.
2) Sand down the trim around the glass down to the bare wood.
3)Paint the rest white.
4) Voila!




Were you able to picture it?
I am not actually buying the gun cabinet and doing this project though.
This is just the kind of weird stuff I like to think about in my spare time.

  7. It's doing the crown moulding part that would stop me... (not so good w/ 'building' and mitered corners) and feel I can't be asking any more of hubby for a long time... :( But yep - it would work just fine!

  9. You are too cute! This cabinet would look wonderful done like the one in your image. I like the two tone look a lot...it looks old and it would blend anywhere perfectly.
