Did any of you correctly guess my entry last week?
Well, guess what…. it won this week!
Isn’t this going to be beautiful in my new sewing studio??
(Looking for the tutorial on the removable fabric wallpaper? Click HERE)
I found this heavy oak china cabinet on Craigslist for $50
(you know I love me some Craigslist furniture)
I removed the doors, used my spray gun to paint it a lovely blue, switched out the hardware, and of course, added some beautiful Amy Butler Home Decor fabric to the back of the hutch.
By the way, the fabric is completely removable! I will be sharing that tutorial shortly…. you will want to use this technique all over your house, I promise.
Oh, and I will also be sharing a NEW tutorial for painting furniture soon! Remember my old tutorial found HERE? Well, it is one of my most popular posts, but I have an easier way that I will definitely show you.
Not only is the back lined with fabric, so are the drawers!
What a fun pop of excitement
The new hardware was purchased at Lowe’s on clearance.
Because the old drawer pulls and cabinet handles were larger than my new hardware, I did have to putty the old holes and re drill new ones. However, it was absolutely worth the work.
Right now, this piece is sitting in our breakfast area because my new sewing studio isn’t finished yet. I kind of wish I could keep it here because I just love it.
I haven’t yet decided what to store on these shelves.
I was originally thinking of using it as fabric storage, but it would certainly be a shame to cover up that Amy Butler gorgeousness.
So for now, I have some precariously placed spools of thread.
So, what do you think? What would you use this piece for? Fabric storage? Notions? Books?
