This cabinet was found in the small ads, about 6 months ago. I’d been looking for one like it for ages. It was about $120, but when we went to collect it, it was bigger than I had thought, so it needed a new location in the kitchen. But it’s finally done and in the right spot.I want to add LEDs inside, it is a cocktail cabinet, but it will be used to hold glasses and a couple of cocktail shakers.
This was the starting point, it was in good nick, so all it needed was painting, and the fabric backing stripping out. The same fabric was on the shelves, but was very stained.
I painted it in a darker blue on the bottom and mixed a lighter one for the top, added lots of gold leaf. Funky wallpaper inside and on the shelves, it’s hard to see the shelf wallpaper in this light, but it has a silver lustre.
I put silver leaf on the shelf supports.
I’m thrilled with how it turned out. Just need LED lighting outside and a neon sign on the wall over it
I particularly love the legs. (Cabriole?)
