Moms Cabinet

Well, it's finished. I managed to save my moms curio cabinet. Took me about five days, lots of paint and elbow grease but she's all finished. 


 The photo on the right is where I began. Three coats of paint. On Thursday I spent the morning scraping the paint off the glass windows and distressing the cabinet a bit to give it that 'loved' look.


ofcourse I had my little helper Bailey Boo by my side the entire time supervising me. And he didn't even get into the paint this time!

Here she is all finished and I have a few of my moms items inside for now until I finish filling it. 



Please excuse the stuff on the side, Im still working on finishing this guest room which should be complete soon. Can't wait to show you all when it's finally done!

Took alot out of me physically but it was well worth it. I wanted to do this alone without the hubs help. May sound funny but it felt like I was doing it for my mom so it had to be done by me. Its just a cabinet to some but to me it's a treasure.

  1. Oh yes it is a treasure Robyn. And guess what? My mom had one just exactly like that. My older sister, Julie has it in her home. We all have a few things that were mom's. I have her garden iron table, chairs, and bench.
