Refinished corner cabinet
I’ve been looking for a corner cabinet for my basement for a long time. And, I finally found one. Well, my sister found it on a Facebook Garage Sale page. Side note: Facebook garage sale pages are rockin’ awesome. Things go quick, so your first win is addictive. I find myself browsing my Facebook Garage Sale page even when I don’t need anything.
She was asking $80 and I got it for $75, so I felt like I already won, getting it for $5 cheaper. Boom.
You’re thinking, that’s already pretty nice, right? Only problem is, all of my wood work is a dark stain. And well, the handles and hinges were this straight-from-the-eighties gold. Yuck.
First, I pulled out the stain we used when we finished the basement.
Only problem was, it had congealed into this weird gel-like consistency. I figured I didn’t have much to lose to try it first. So, I grabbed a foam brush and started brushing it on. It worked awesome. I mean, super awesome.
Then, while the stain was drying, I pulled out my Krylon Oil Rubbed Bronze Spray Paint.
It worked wonders on the handles and hinges. I love oil-rubbed bronze finish. Ready for the after? It’s a huge change.
Kapow. I’d say it’s a job well done. Facebook Garage Sale page, I’ll be back.
