Before and After

I love weekends like this past one. We were so productive with things around the house! My favorite project, however was that we finally painted our small china cabinet. My sister gave it to us when they moved houses since they didn't have a spot for it. It's nothing fancy (in fact it's really a pretty cheap piece of furniture; I can say that without feeling bad because it was given to my sister by someone who didnt want it anymore either, lol)
Its been sitting in our dining room not matching anything we own but storing our bar glasses just waiting for someone to give it some love and care. Here are the before and after pictures:



All we did is give it a coat of paint and some crystal knobs. After we got to painting it we realized how cheap it really is... wherever it came from, they used different kinds of wood on just about every surface! Therefore, the it took about 3 coats of paint to get it looking somewhat consistant. Just dont look too close! lol

It looks SOOO much better, though, and makes the glasses really pop. It even matches this piece that we added a few weeks ago!
