DIY - Living room cabinet transformation

DIY - Living room cabinet transformation

We love doing makeovers on old furniture and giving them new life, and I am happy to say we finally finished our latest project, after weeks of procrastination.

We found an old and worn out cabinet and bought it for cheap. We saw potential in it, but we were amazed at how beautiful and elegant it turned out!

So here’s what we did:

• We bought white paint, golden spray and a lot of nail polish remover & cotton buds.
• We started on the cabinet top, removing the old varnish by rubbing it away with cotton buds soaked in nail polish. I recommend wearing rubber gloves and doing this in a place where you have good circulation of air because the chemicals are quite strong. It worked like a charm, and is a trick we'll definitely be using again!
• Next we removed the old knobs on the cabinet doors and sprayed them golden.
• We then started painting the cabinet, leaving the cabinet top untouched.

And this is the result!
