Trash to Treasure Cabinet Finished & My Next Project!

I finally finished the trash to treasure cabinet in our dining room!  Isn't she a beauty?  I didn't get a chance to take before pictures when Dave brought this piece home.  Prior to the transformation, the cabinet was dark wood with lovely detailing on the doors and sides.

Dave primed and painted the cabinet all white using Behr Hushed White.  Then, I added my touches by painting the detailing in my favorite paint color, Valspar Atlantic Gray.  I love the finished two tone look! 

There is a piece of hardware missing from the cabinet doors.  That's how it goes sometimes with trash to treasure pieces!  So, I'm on the look out for a replacement that will fit. 

Now that the cabinet in the dining room is finished, I'm onto my next project - this small wooden dresser.

Based on the sticker on bottom drawer, I have a feeling this used to reside in a boy's room LOL!

    The cabinet turned out great. I bet it looks fantastic in the dining room. Looking forward to see what you do with the "shocking" dresser!
