Well, the china cab is finished! And it's pretty good lookin if I do say so myself.
Decided to go with Behr Bijou Red and I really love how it turned out. In a perfect world, I would have had this piece professionally lacquered.... but we all know the world isn't perfect :) It took 1 coat of primer, 2 coats of paint and lots of little touch ups.
I removed the decorative border from the front glass panes. I also replaced the hardware. I used these and I love them. They look like beehives! Who wouldn't want that?!
I am currently using this piece to house our barware, so I guess this is our 'bar area'. And if you know us, you know that we are serious about cocktail hour in our house.
Which means it will get a lot of use! Which is good news. I would also like to note that the Hubs was
a hater slightly apprehensive about this project initially. But after seeing the outcome- he loves it! So the moral of this story is: you just gotta trust, babe.
This weekend I am going to whip up some art for the blank walls on each side of it. And also think about how I am going to re-do those palm tree chairs.... they are another hand me down from my generous in-laws :)
Happy weekend, everyone!
