China Cabinet Update

We found this old china cabinet on Craigslist for $50. I loved the character and love it even more now with a fresh, updated paint job!

The Before.

I decided to paint the inside with the same light taupe color I had just used for the walls in the dining room.

For the outside, I chose a charcoal gray color called Carbon Copy.

The glass needed to be taped off. As you can see, we had to leave the doors on since the hinges and hardware were nailed on.

Such beautiful hardware but I had to use a tiny paintbrush to paint around them.

The After.

I love the way it looks in our dining room!

I love the minimal and modern look of floating acrylic frames.
