My Curio Cabinet Redo.

Hi everyone. 

I am so happy that I finally finished this project.  (Just a few hours ago, actually.)

Here is the “before” of what my curio cabinet looked like.  I had almost forgotten to take a “before” picture.  The pink color you see there is actually the primer I used.  I ran out of the white primer.  IMG_0219 (600x800)

This curio cabinet is exactly like the one above.  I have this one in the living room.  IMG_0233 (600x800)

and here are pictures of the “after” curio cabinet! I used “Cottage White” paint by Behr.  This is one of my favorite paints!  Love it!  The color on the wall is called “Brown Teepee” by Behr.  We find that Behr is a really good paint. :)IMG_0265 (588x800)

I love it!  IMG_0275 (625x800)

I had painted that little table a while back in the same color as the curio cabinet.  IMG_0285 (644x800)

I will be making a post as to how I painted my curio cabinet tomorrow. :) Stay tuned!

Sandra, they both look wonderful! I love that curio cabinet. I actually wanted one exactly like it. See story....

Funny story about an exact curio cabinet like yours. My mother in law was telling me one day to put my name on the back of anything I might want "someday." I picked that very same curio cabinet. Well, she said no I couldn't have it so I asked for another cabinet that was similar. She said no again. I kept asking for one thing or another, she kept saying no. That was about 10 years ago and she never said yes on anything. Talk about feeling uncomfortable!

Sandra, your cabinet turned out absolutely beautiful! It is both cottagey and elegant at the same time. You should be so proud.
