Thrifted China Cabinet Makeover

Okay it's been way too long since I've been here and I've missed this space and I've missed sharing with all of you.

But I'm back and I know I'm overdue but ready to start documenting some of the changes and makeovers we've been working on in our new home including so much more. I even owe you YouTube updates.

But for now and in the meantime while I get caught up, today I'm here to share with you this thrifted china cabinet makeover because it was fun, easy and very affordable to do.

To start let me just say that although this cabinet looked like wood on the outside and it's definitely wood because it's heavy enough, the surface was like a wood look-a-like vinyl which I hadn't realized until I picked it up but for the price, I wasn't mad about it because with chalk paint anything and everything is possible.

So yeah, if you know me you know that I used my favorite chalk paint for this piece.

Why don't I show you the before so you can get an idea of how this piece started.

This is the original photo from the FBMP listing.

Soon as I brought it home and I knew I wanted a bead board backing to it. Which I did take a few pictures of and I'll share a sneak peak of that in my Instagram soon after this post goes live. But below is a picture of the bead board wallpaper already installed (which I had to do twice btw because I didn't like how it turned out the first time I tried) and painted with chalk paint also. Placed the glass shelves back inside and got started on painting the outside.

Love how that wallpaper turned out almost looks like real breadboard don't you think?

It took a couple of extra coats to cover this hutch just right considering the outside was quite sleek but I had plenty extra paint after I finished it. That's what I love about this chalk paint. I'll list all of the materials I used below. 

Once I finished painting it I sealed it and added the doors back on and kept the original hardware. I love the original hardware it tells a story and gives this renovated piece some originality. 

Love that this piece gives me extra room to showcase some of my favorite pieces and store away some of our baking supplies in the cabinets below plus my favorite linens from All Cotton And Linen, candles, napkins rings, vases, glasses thrifted pieces, etc.

And there is light! 

Yes, I love that there was a light already installed and makes everything inside that much prettier inside. Love the glow it gives off. And that bead board. LOVE IT!
