I picked up this great little retro cabinet a long while back, and it has pretty much sat in our sun room all summer. All I really managed to do in the past year is give it a light sanding.
Being that it was just a cheap laminate finish, I didn't hesitate to paint it.
So, I lined my little paint tray with tin foil, and got to work giving the cabinet an all over primer base.
I taped off a British flag graphic on the cabinet and the sliding doors.
The red took a lot of coats and didn't really cover well. It was a scary pink colour for the first 3 coats, at least.
The blue, on the other hand, covered beautifully. Here it is with only one coat.
I went over the white with a dry-brush technique to get a painterly imperfect look.
The colour story worked well with my skateboard project, plus the size was perfect for that nook.
This also gave me an opportunity to display my vintage scottie lamp. It is just too cute for words.
