China Cabinet Refinish


You might have noticed my pretty china cabinet in the background of pictures shown in recent posts, so I thought it was time to share how I upcycled my thrift store cabinet!

Since I didn't want to spend hours sanding, I painted a coat of Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer Sealer Stain Killer first.  Then I painted on two coats of Martha Stewart Living paint in Flagstone. (love this gray!)
 It took forev but I love how it turned out!

I love having a place to display my pretty china and glassware! Aren't the matching Christmas plates the cutest?

    1. Same exact situation here!!! I had to do a double take. I think what you have done to update it looks fantastic. Well done! Out of curiosity, how did you ladies acquire your china cabinets?
