nice, but just not great...
I fell in love with this paint color at Benjamin Moore. It's called Wedgwood Grey. I just knew I was going to use it for something. Crazy huh? I buy paint BEFORE I know what I am going to do with it. Anyway, I got home and looked around my house to see where my paint was going to land up. I looked in the living room and AHA! The cabinet that I like, but don't love...perfect! I got to work on it right away. Well, actually I did have to wait till my husband came home so he could empty out the electrical stuff for me. But after that, it was off to the races!
I popped off the doors and punched out the metal inserts (they were garbage anyway). It took about three coats in total. Next, I had to re-figure the door inserts. We always wanted something that looked cool, and kept the TV components cool as well. After much thought, I came up with the idea of using cloth table napkins. I loved the print on the napkins and it worked perfectly with the paint color. I borrowed (he may never see it again) a staple gun from my friend and in about 5 minutes was done! I didn't want to cut the napkins, just in case I changed my mind and wanted to actually use them as napkins one day, so I just folded them down to size and stapled them securely in place.
Volia! I love the cabinet now!
It looks like it finally belongs...welcome home cabinet, welcome home.
Oh hey! I stopped by Anthropology and picked up some sweet bone cabinet pulls. Check it!
