Painting the furniture ~ reveal

This was my great-grandmothers.  I hope she likes the new look!

Here is the after updated look!  Check out those great legs.

Added some new eye candy door knobs.  I stood in Hobby Lobby today for 30 minutes trying to figure out which one to go with.

Not totally dry yet so left the door open.

Also painted this mirror that I had.  Need some pretty plates to go around it.
 ~See my pretty curtains in the reflection?

Joining these parties this week.

  1. It looks great in the lighter color, you can really see all the great detail along the bottom and those legs!

  2. Love the new look. I also have an shelf of the same dark color and wanted to paint it white. I tried to use sandpaper but not succeed and not yet painted white. Did you spray?

  3. Great job! I love your little cabinet!!! Do you know what it was used for or what kind of cabinet it is? It has an unusual(in a good way) shape!
    PS: your word verification is still on. :)

  4. The white shows off the great bones of this piece!

  5. I love it in white, it looks so much better, you can see all of the details.

  6. What a darling little cabinet and I love how you've painted it! So fresh and a nice little glass knob! Just perfect!
    be a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  7. Love this little cabinet! I have a vanity that is all apart and has what looks like 2 of these- I might just have to make them side tables instead of putting it back together as a vanity.

  8. I think this is called an antique smokers stand. I love it painted and the mirror is nice too.

  9. It really looks better in white and I think that your great-grandmother would approve. The little glass knob looks great too.
