The entry of my house has been in a serious need of good furniture. This past 8 months I have been shopping around for the perfect piece of furniture. What I had in mind for the entry hall was something that had a masculine feel to it, clean lines but most importantly something that will not go out style. It almost feels like finding the right partner. :-p <-- dramatic, I know! The good news is that I finally found the right piece. Woohooo!
I found it on Craigslist for $40 dollars. It has been stored all winter because I've been waiting for good weather so this past weekend this beauty finally received an awesome make-over. It was made with beautiful wood, possibly Brazilian? It was such a beautiful finish that I would have loved to refinish it with a light stain to preserve the original wood. However the previous owner had some pretty bad cup stains on top that I was not able to preserve it.
First, cleaned, sanded, painted and sealed. I used 2 cans of Krylon Gloss and I also painted the inside of this cabinet.
