It takes a healthy dose of vision to look at this peeling cabinet and picture the chic, modern piece it would eventually become. But Reeves seems to be just that visionary. Take a look at her masterpiece.

From Reeves:

This piece took a lot of prep work up front before I was ever able to get to painting. The mustard paint it had was so easy to scratch off so just putting more paint over it would do no good. I sanded almost all of the paint off, cleaned the piece, and spray primed it. The cabinet then got a a new look with 2 different grey paints. The inside was painted with a creamy grey chalk paint the helped hide the layers of wallpaper that had been removed. On the outside of the cabinet I used a medium grey paint and some cute white rose knobs to freshen it up.

Thank you Reeves!
