Are ya’ll ready for a thrifty makeover today? I hope so! It’s day #11 in this fun thrifty series, and I hope you are enjoying it so far! 🙂
Today I’m sharing the makeover of an awesome shutter cabinet I grabbed just as it was being put out at one of the thrift stores near my Sister’s house. ( There may or may not have been some stalking involved.)
I knew paint would easily revive this dated looking thing…
…into one heck of a cottage charmer:
Pure white DIY chalk paint and a little distressing in all the right places really do make this cabinet so charming now. This cost me $8, ya’ll!
Here’s the inside before:
I couldn’t resist adding a fun pop of color…
Isn’t this color dreamy? This is Watery by Sherwin William’s HGTV Home line that I purchased at Lowes last Summer to makeover this kitchen table:
I loved it on that table, and thought it would be perfect here as well.
The original backing was just rough plywood so when I sanded the painted surface, I got this awesome worn effect…
The original shelf was very shallow as well, so I replaced it with a deeper one.
This would be perfect in a bathroom to hold all that junk we rely on to make us beautiful! It would also work in a kitchen, or a home office. So many possibilities. I never pass up a little cabinet when I come across one because they always sell. This one didn’t last a week.
I replaced the original knobs with these sweet glass ones from Hobby Lobby:
I just love how this turned out!
