Oh what a little paint can do!
I picked this sad little cabinet up from a friend. It had seen better days... nothing that a fresh coat of paint can't fix!
I think it's an old radio/record cabinet because of the openings in the bottom and back. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
I chose the color, Rebel Yellow, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company. Even though it took 3 coats to cover this dark brown, I only used about 3/4 of the 8oz jar of paint. With Dixie Belle, you apply thin coats to allow it to dry properly. Because of this, the paint goes a long way!
Once the paint was dry, it was time to dress her up!
I've had this transfer from Re*design With Prima for awhile and decided it was perfect for this project.
I removed the backing, then positioned it on the cabinet door.
Then I started rubbing to make the design stick to the door.
I peeled off the plastic leaving the design on the door.
I got a little excited that it was coming off perfectly, and pulled it off with the top corner not being adhered properly. No problem, I just sanded the edges of the rest of the transfer to make it look like I meant to do it. A happy mistake :)
I also sanded along some of the detail.
I added a little dark brown glaze.
From dark & drab to sunny yellow!
