I have been working on a few Fall things to show you but haven't really finished anything yet. So today I thought I would share this little stenciled cabinet I did last week. It didn't always look this cute though.
I found this at Hobby Lobby and although it's a really cool cabinet - I didn't care for the color or distressing on it. It was on a deeply discounted - 80%off shelf and if it hadn't I would not have purchased it to redo it. (Please overlook the dust on the shelves- it had been sitting in our garage for a couple of weeks where T had been sanding.)
Here's a side view of it. Very black and somewhat distressed. I have been on a black kick lately but I just wasn't feeling it on this piece. So out came the white diy'd chalk paint and I set to work.
I painted the cabinet with the white paint and then I painted the drawers with some leftover blue paint I had on hand. I then decided it needed a little more so I stenciled some numbers on the drawers with black chalkboard paint.
I love it now. It's perfect for holding the items I am using for my present scrapbook project and fits perfectly on the side table next to my desk.
I am so glad I saw the potential in this piece and brought it home. It now fits into my decor perfectly.
Have you ever found a piece that was perfect for what you wanted but just didn't fit into your decor scheme? Did you go ahead and purchase it or did you leave it at the store?I love to hear from you so tell me about it in the comments below.
Until next time have fun creating something you love.
I will be linking up to the parties listed on the Where I Party page. Please be sure to go by and check out all the great creativeness found at each one.
