Before & After: Free Cabinet Gets Pretty Paneling
Seduced by the siren song of free, Angelica scooped up this cabinet—as the panels started falling off. Not to be deterred, she took some fabric remnants and transformed it into a versatile piece:
This modest wine cabinet was a free find. It looked like all it needed was a fresh coat of paint and it would become a great piece for extra storage in our home. But as I got it out of the car, the panels started falling off. I could not complain as it was free! In fact, I was secretly happy for being able to experiment!
I remembered that I had a beautiful fabric remnant, bought months ago. The fabric was just enough to cover the three front door panels. I added a few layers of batting and that created a cushioned effect on the doors.
With a little more work and a couple of coats of paint just bout the same green as the fabric, it now looks like a highly priced piece of furniture! In reality, all it cost me was just about $15!
