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...
