Pastel Blue Kitchen Cabinet

Hello!  I have a before and after post here, my new workshop/studio has certainly been getting lots of use!

A while back, I won a tender on these two stereo cabinets from the local Tender Centre (lots of treasures there!)

They are constructed from solid pine, and in great condition, but I knew I could make them feel like a more versatile piece of furniture than somewhere to store your stereo.

While I was working on the first one, a client came to my studio to view this dining suite, which she ended up buying.

She decided that the cabinet would be perfect for some kitchen storage for her, and made the decision to buy it, before it was even finished.  I am delivering it to her tomorrow...I hope she likes it!

I took out the glass from the cupboard and replaced it with chicken wire...much cuter!

I made an executive decision to add some bling.

Now to decide what colour to do the next one...

Sneak Peeks of Some Progress

My workshop/studio is coming along very nicely.  I am loving the white walls, they make such a lovely backdrop for my furniture.

I am going to buy white floor paint today, and hopefully I will be able to get some of it on the floor.  That will really make it feel fresh, light and bright, can't wait!

I also have to finish painting my paint storage shelf...I intended to paint it white but just couldn't do it...had to go pink with a selection of other bright colours, I still don't quite know how it will end up but that is all part of the fun!
