Vintage Danish Cabinet makeover

Good morning, well the kids are back to
school today. Sasha Year 12 and Jonty year 10.  Good luck if you have a little one starting school this year.  I’ll be glad to get back into a prosper routine as far as work goes as it’s been quite sporadic this least 6 weeks. I did paint this lovely piece from Europe last week. 

Such a pretty piece. I painted the interior in a low sheen water based enamel in a sea foam and the exterior in a satin enamel in a pale grey. 

The door was solid when I bought it but the panel had three big splits in it so I removed the panel and replaced with wire.


Handy top drawer also, both door and drawer lockable with original key.

Here’s the before photo.

Today I’m finishing a sweet little vintage bookcase and starting to paint a drinks cabinet. Lots of pieces here to work on :)

Have a great day

  1. I like the color combo. I would put glass in, not the wire tho. Cute for storage or display.

    1. Yes glass would be lovely also but more expensive for me and would take longer and I wanted a quick turn around on this piece.
      Hope you are going well.

  2. WOW! Talk about an amazing transformation! That is absolutely beautiful. It is truly incredible how something as simple as paint can make such a HUGE difference! :-)

  3. If you dine outside often, the chances are you've got a covered area or perhaps a 2nd home in Spain. Obviously, when decorating this space, you'll try to match the rest of the gardens theme, whether that's country cottage or contemporary. kitchen tables

  4. The vintage dining table is always the first choice as dining room furniture. These dining tables are so beautiful and bring a stunning look to the dining room. However, if you want to buy the best vintage dining table online you can visit the VigsHome website.
