The Mid-Century Cabinet

I may or may not have made us a couple minutes late to church because I couldn’t leave this little cabinet by the dumpster. It wasn’t anything special but it certainly didn’t deserve to be trashed.


The previous owner had attempted a white paint job but it was poorly done and only left the piece looking worse. I sanded the gloppy edges, tightened up the legs, and removed the replacement handles that just didn’t match the mid-century style. I played around with color for a bit before settling on a custom blend of Country Chic Paint’s Midnight Sky and Bliss with just a pinch of Rustic Charm. The result was a unique teal blue. I painted the sides, legs, and remaining unbroken door a creamy white and the interior sides Rustic Charm.

Mid-century pieces always look best true to the era in bold colors with lots of design so I found some very cool retro patterned wallpaper for the sides and interior back. With gold tipped feet and new knobs, this little cabinet was complete.
