Here's Kim's email: Okay! I have my little "make-over" furniture that I purchased at Jubilee Furniture about a month ago...it just takes a little time to do a beautiful transformation!
I bought this little cabinet for $10 dollars at your store. What a deal! I wanted to modernize it so my twin boys would think it's cool! It's going to be used for storage under a desk. Turned out it was a little too tall to fit under the desk, so I cut it down.
It started out brown with a brass handle. I lightly sanded it and washed it down with TSP a cleaner that was commonly used on paneling in the 70's before painting it. I glazed it with a silver oil based paint and then silver-leafed the door for a contemporary look. Lastly, I changed the hardware to chrome to match with the legs on the desk chairs!
It was a lot of fun doing this project and it's always fun finding good deals at Jubilee Furniture!
