If you love flea markets, this is one you need to put on your list to check out. It is gigantic and full of a wide variety of fun finds.
....I picked up this old music cabinet.
It needed a lot of TLC. The top had a big gap running down the middle where the wood top was splitting.
The door needed to be repaired... All things I knew I could fix. The gentleman that was selling this cabinet to me was full of history & stories. He was telling me all about the historical homes he's helped clean out in the New England area. I could've sat and listened to him all day. This cabinet sat in a barn on an old estate. Knowing that, it's lucky that it was in decent shape.
I brought it home, and waited until inspiration hit me. A couple of the shelves (you can't see it in the pictures...and I forgot to take pictures of them) were split and they were only being held by the grooves inside the cabinet.
I knew I wanted something a little different...
It deserved to be pretty again.
I painted it in General Finishes Seagull Gray and used Black gel stain on the top. I found a graphic I loved on The Graphics Fairy website for the door. I used the Mod Podge transfer method.
I love adding appliques to my pieces that need that little extra something. They are an easy detail to add onto a plain piece of furniture. The appliques are from D. Lawless Hardware. I love shopping at D. Lawless, they have such great items for amazing great prices.
For the inside.... this is the fun part. I turned it into a wine cabinet by adding wine bottle holder and and wine glass holders.
I think it turned out super cute and gave this neglected cabinet a new life and a new purpose.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend..
With much love, peace & happiness
